Texas: Muslim Prisoner Sues Government For Violating Right To Observe Ramadan

Mohammad Yahya was arrested in Saudi Arabia last year and later brought back to the U.S., where he was sentenced to two years in prison after being convicted of taking money from investors and transferring it into his personal account. His lawsuit alleges that prison officials denied all 11 of his requests, in accordance with his religious beliefs, to have his meals provided after sundown and before sunrise during last year’s Ramadan.
