Advice for Ramadan

By Thumper 2 October 2007 24

ESA previously told us to wear beanies in winter because it is cold.

Now they have this incisive piece of advice for Muslims in Ramadan.

Surely Muslims who strictly adhere to Ramadan are well aware of everything. This ‘advice’ seems rather paternalistic to me.

I await the ‘advice’ given for Good Friday when Christians eat fish and may choke on a fish bone.

In other news, 2007 StormSafe campaign coming soon. This should be common sense but well worth a read. No link as yet.

What’s Your opinion?

I think that’s the entire point though.

The fact sheet is just daft – they are not even obliged to publish it, therefore it’s already started life as a waste of government resources wanting a niche to fill.

It’s just an arse-covering fact sheet for the ESA, in case they need to provide information to people during the month.

Besides, assuming every person identifying as Muslim rigidly adheres to fasting during Ramandan is as daft as assuming every person identifying as Christian attends mass every Sunday and adheres to the variety of Lent restrictions.

(aside from offending people for the sake of offending people)
