Muslim Inmate Sues Because He Got Hungry During His Ramadan Fast

Published

on

During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Muslim inmates in North Carolina are given an opportunity to fast. One Muslim inmate at the Mecklenburg County Jail in North Carolina is suing after he requested the fast, and then became hungry from fasting.

Travaile Speller has sued the jail, claiming that the jail discriminated against his religious practice by giving him two, instead of three meals a day during Ramadan.

“That is clearly depriving me of necessary calories, as well as the recommend(ed) daily volume of nutrients that my body requires to function normally,” Speller wrote in his hand-written complaint. “They are intentionally eliminating one whole meal (lunch) which is cruel and unusual punishment directed towards all Muslims,” the inmate argued.

During Ramadan, which took place between May 15 and June 15 this year, practicing Muslims are only allowed to eat two meals a day before dawn (suhoor) and after sunset (iftar). During the daytime, Muslims who celebrate Ramadan must refrain from eating, drinking, and having sex for an entire month.

The inmate’s lawsuit is so outrageous, it prompted a response from Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Islamic center of Charlotte. “”They withheld his lunch during Ramadan? They were supposed to withhold it during Ramadan. The jail was doing him a favor and actually respecting his faith,” Hough said.

During Ramadan, Speller received two meals each day, as he requested in an official jail form in which he indicated that he would like to observe the Ramadan fast. On the form, Muslim inmates are told exactly how the Ramadan fast works and when they will receive their meals if they decide to fast.

Speller filed his lawsuit after Ramadan, arguing, “My meals should not be diminished based on my religion, or because of my observance of my religious holiday.”

Speller’s lawsuit is calling for a jury trial, and $250,000 in damages, despite the fact that the jail itself was more compliant with the Ramadan fast than the Muslim inmate who claimed he wanted to observe the holiday himself.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic

Another Republican governor with courage.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.

According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.

“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”

Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”

“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.

Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.

“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.

Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.

“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.

Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:

Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…

This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.

Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.

“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.

The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
