Ban On Arrests During Ramadan

Ban On Arrests During Ramadan

A local councillor said the instruction could not apply if it stopped the police doing their job. 'This sounds odd but we would need to find out what impact rescheduling arrests had on police operations,' said Liberal Democrat Councillor Simon Ashley, who represents the city's Gorton South ward.

'The police's first job is to police. I understand they have a difficult task to do and need to do it sensitively, especially within minority communities, but that can't stop them policing serious crimes.'

Letter in the Sunday Times speaks volumes.

An old saying enjoins us, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do”. Today, the maxim appears to be when in Rome, Romans must bend the knee to ensure the Carthaginians are made comfortable at the expense, and to the detriment, of Romans. How sad to see what chasing votes can lead to.

Does this mean that Saturdays are a 'no-no' for Jews, Sundays are definately 'out' for Christians.........
