Enough is enough : China

Very disturbed to hear that Muslims in the Xinjiang region of China are being banned from fasting in the month of Ramadan, according to the BBC.

According to the reports, students were "were being forced to have meals with professors to ensure they were not fasting."

Another report describes how hospital staff are being forced to sign a pledge that they would not fast.

This is an unacceptable restriction on freedom to practice ones faith.

So sent this to the Chinese Embassy in London:
"I have been very disturbed to hear reports that Muslims in the Xinjiang region of China are being banned from fasting, to the extent that some students are being forced to eat meals with college staff to prove that the students are not fasting that day. To hear that the Chinese government is behaving in this way reduces my respect for China, and makes me less likely to buy Chinese made products."

And this to the High Commission for Pakistan in the UK
"I have been disturbed to read reports that reports that Muslims in the Xinjiang region of China are being banned from fasting, to the extent that some students are being forced to eat meals with college staff to prove that the students are not fasting that day. As China is a good friend of Pakistan, I wondered what efforts the Pakistani Government has made to stop this practice."
