The plan misfired as people upload images of themselves, ,not only eating but drinking!
Religion is purely personal and should be in tune with Human nature and left to individual choice.
When something is forced,not in consonance with Nature and human volition, this would be the result.
Adel Almi is a Tunisian preacher who runs the “Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice,” and he has threatened to photograph and publicly shame anyone who eats during the daytime. Ditto with anyone who goes to the beach, which he says is also forbidden. He’s even gone to the Tunisian Interior Minister, asking him to enforce penalties in the case of any fasting violations. Given the religious extremism some people hold, you wouldn’t want to be “caught in the act,” or else you might face some really awful consequences…..
Here’s the report from the Middle East Media Research Institute:
The Facebook page’s “About” page says that “This page is open to all people that defiantly challenge Adel Almi, in this case, we will go to the beach and will photograph ourselves.” The page features photos submitted by Tunisian readers, living either in Tunisia or abroad, of themselves eating, drinking, smoking, or violating other Ramadan prohibitions. Many of the photos show the subjects’ faces, and also include their names, to show that they fully support this demand for tolerance and freedom.
