Comment: Thoughts on Ramadan.



'Ramadan, this year started on May 27th and lasts until June 24th. During this period Muslims must abstain from food, drink, smoking and sex each day between an early morning meal (suhur) and a night-time meal (iftar)
While fasting, they have more time to focus their minds and activities on prayer and spiritual reflection.'   Source birminghammail.co.uk

Really?

Perhaps they should be 'focusing their minds' on the fact that there are among them utterly evil, twisted men and women whose activities include slitting the throats of innocents, blowing up children and running heavy vehicles over crumpled bodies.
Perhaps they should also focus their minds on doing the right thing and reporting any tiny little piece of information, a change in behaviour perhaps, a sudden determination to wear religious dress, hanging ISIS flags from bedroom windows , praying loudly in the street etc to the authorities. 
Perhaps the Imams should focus their minds on eradicating the cowardly terrorists from their midst. Perhaps  it's time for all true and peaceful Muslims  to man-up, big time before they are all tarred with the same brush.

Patience is running out.
