The Sharia police(Hisbah) has announced that people who eat outside during the Muslim fasting period(Ramadan) would be arrested and prosecuted according to Islamic law.
This was made known by the commander-general of the security operative, Nabahani Usman, who stated that people would only be released if they can provide proof that they are ill and present a medical report from a government hospital.
He added that these are the only categories of people exempted from participating in fasting.
“We do this kind of operation yearly and we will continue it this year. The aim is to get every Muslim to respect the month of Ramadan. Even if a doctor says you should not fast, that does not mean you should eat in public while others are fasting. So any Muslim that we apprehend eating outside, our men will arrest and bring the person to our office unless he can show proof that a doctor asked him not to fast.”
