Five flogged in Iran for publically eating in Ramazan

Five people were publicly flogged in Iran as punishment for eating in public in violation of the rules set for the Muslim fasting month Ramazan, Iranian media reported on Sunday.

The offenders ignored warnings from police and “ate intentionally” in the western city of Kermanshah, the province’s Chief Justice Ali Mozafari reportedly said.

Iranian authorities issue warnings every year to respect Ramazan by not eating or drinking in public. However, the fast is often ignored, especially in the hot weather, with people drinking water on the streets.

      No one fines you fir wearing Islamic dress. By the way what is Islamic dress? Dress comes from culture not religion. France bans niqab and burqa. No one cares as long as your face is visible. This is a security issue.
