The glorious month of Ramadan is here again as Muslims across the world are expected to fast. Ramadan is considered the most blessed month in the Islamic calendar. As holy as the Month may be, there are still some Muslims in the country who don't engage in fasting.
The Shariah law frowns against any Muslim who fails to fast during this Month without any cogent excuse. That's exactly why it isn't surprising to see a Security Unit in the North arrest people who were spotted on the street eating foods.
According to reports, Hisbah arrested three males and eight females in the street of Kano. These people were said to be faulters of the Shariah Law as they were spotted eating in public. The question is: should anyone be arrested for deciding not to fast? Why not let God judge the people who makes such decision?
It's quite funny that people were arrested just because they failed to fast during the month of Ramadan. Would the same thing be done to Christians in the State? Nigerians were quick to react on social media after this news was released. Check out their reaction below:
