Non-Muslims Told Not To Eat During Ramadan

All members of Tower Hamlets Council in east London, where 36 per cent of the population follows Islam, were sent an email asking them to abide by the restrictions observed by strict Muslims during the holy month.

They have also been told that the town hall's business agenda will be reduced throughout Ramadan to accommodate Muslims, with only seven committee meetings scheduled and special prayer breaks included in the evening events.

Tower Hamlets Council has previously insisted that staff call their Christmas meal the "festive lunch" and replaced Bonfire Night celebrations with a show based on a Bengali folk tale.

Some councillors on the Labour-run authority claim it is favouring one religious group over the others.

Cllr Stephanie Eaton, leader of the Lib Dem group, said she would be ignoring the new Ramadan regime and added: "I was rather disconcerted to see that the arrangements put in place for Ramadan, which we support for Muslim colleagues, have been imposed upon all councillors.

Perhaps they should also be told to cover their wives, Mutilate their daughters genitals and kill some gays, You know, so the muslims aren't offended by people who have the nerve to do something not permitted by Islam.

Or perhaps instead Tower Hamlets could concentrate on some real problems they have, Like the 12.7% unemployment, The highest unemployment rate in Britain. But who has time for work when they have to pray 5 times a day and find time to beat their multiple wives, Multiple wives which the rest of us apparently have to support.

I am all for people inflicting whatever imaginary laws they want upon themselves, But your religions rules apply to you and you alone. If i was a councilor in Tower Hamlets i would go out of my way to eat during Ramadan, I would order pizza, have bowls of crisps on the table and ensure that it all contained pork. Know why? BECAUSE YOUR RELIGIONS RULES APPLY ONLY TO YOU.


  1. Sure religion only applys to those who believe in it but if you go out of your way to be a cunt, you are going to get a black eye.

  2. if only. this is islam we are talking about. their reaction to people not doing as they are told is usually stoning.

    when concessions are demanded and people are told to abide by someone else's religious rules they HAVE to go out of their way to disobey them, disobey them fully and completely.

    where i live eating pork is legal, and so is eating it to make a point. if someones precious feelings are harmed by that then that's just tough.

  3. Unfortunately we already have a culture in the UK of making concessions to the religious (read: Muslims) who make special pleading as if they are a minority that requires special protection and status in our community.

  4. The one thing I don't get is why do the rest of us have to act Muslim even though we are not muslim. I guess I will never get these people with a Politically Correct mindset. But if I was in your situation, yes, I would be eating port sandwiches, pizza, etc. in spite of this "rule" to act Muslim, so as not to "offend" any of them.
