KEDIRI, Indonesia (Reuters) – For students at one of Indonesia’s oldest Islamic boarding schools, the holy month of Ramadan doesn’t only mean fasting from dawn till dusk. It also means intensive study of the Koran.
BERLIN (Reuters) – A lawmaker from the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) called on Thursday for Muslim doctors, nurses, pilots, bus and train drivers to be banned from working during Ramadan if they are fasting.
The minister, Inger Stojberg, said fasting Muslims should stay home from work “to avoid negative consequences for the rest of Danish society.”
