Schools Forcing Students to Fast

Girls in Jeddah’s primary schools are forced to fast. Their parents are angry as they believe that fasting is inappropriate and physically harmful to the health of their daughters. Teachers have been refusing girls to open their lunch-boxes. Drinking water during the hot days in school is not allowed. The good news: there is no general rule about fasting from the authorities, which instead are saying the decision should be made by the girls themselves. Good. Now tell the fanatic teachers. And don’t tell me they’re all from Egypt.
