More Ramadan peace and tolerance as a Pakistani mullah threatens to burn down a refugee camp rather than see earthquake survivors eating during the day during Ramadan. From “Feeding the survivors during Ramadan,” from the BBC, with thanks to Tom:
Feeding 1,200 people with no kitchen requires a bit of preparation.
You need to light fires, boil rice and cook meat. It takes several hours. You have to get going in advance.
But one of the local mullahs did not see it that way and he paid Mohammed Mustafa a visit.
“What are you doing?” he shouted. “Don’t you know it’s Ramadan now? This is just not permitted.
“You can’t cook food during the day. It’s against Islam. Stop or I’ll burn this place down – your tents, your pots, everything.”
