Watch: Beating up people for not fasting during Ramadan

6 years ago

In a video uploaded on Youtube, the Pakistani police brutally beat up people for not fasting during Ramadan.

Eating or drinking in daylight hours during Ramadan is a crime for Muslims in Pakistan in order to respect the feelings of those who are fasting and to apply the provisions of the Islamic religion, which is the official religion of the state.

They can be fined or even jailed for up to three months but the restrictions do not apply to other religions.

According to the CIA World Factbook and Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, 95-97% of the total population of Pakistan is Muslim.

Ramadan is the most sacred month of the Islamic calendar and Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset every day during the whole month.
