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.

    One of the consequences of being a prison is that you have no rights.

      Not according to the Left and their judicial activists. The same non sense happens all the time in Canada thanks to them.

        The convicted group among the Toronto-18 muslim terrorists were said to not be true muslims by CAIR . Yet , CAIR fights for the rights of muslims in Prison to get prayer rugs, halal food and an Arrow on the floor to show where mekkah is to pray.

        How odd that CAIR denies the prisoners are muslims and yet then defends them for special treatment as muslims.

    Well, if he only thieved from infidels, perhaps they should cut him some slack.
    Then again, was he the only muslim in the prison? That seems unlikely.

    What’s the right temperature to serve bread and water?

    I say put him in a jail in Alaska when it’s summer, and move him to a jail in Antarctica during the winter.

    Awww, I feel so bad for him. I feel bad they’re still feeding him.

  • Martin B

    Feed him nothing but salt pork.

    Were he truly observant, as opposed to being a sh!t disturber, he would have observed the fast while salvaging food from his trays to eat after sundown.

      This is a bit too complicated for an inbred mind.

  • DVult

    Provide him a pork chop up the wazoo every morning and evening and a glass of camel piss on both occasions. If he complains again then double the serving size.

    I applaud the prison for not caving into his demands. If he were truly faithful he would have fasted the entire time to show his faith.
