Ramadan to add to London's Olympic transport woes as thousands of worshippers squeeze onto non-Games lanes
I suspect the authorities have already taken this into account, given that the dates for Ramadan 2012 have been known since, what, the 18th century?
Every year during the month of August, vast crowds of worshippers descend on east London - one of the most concentrated Muslim communities in the country - for nightly prayer.
The Mail's contribution to multiculturalism is to not have a fucking clue when Ramadan is celebrated.
Muslims + Olympics + traffic restrictions = dogwhistle.
Seriously how can this silly act of starving yourself be deemed as acceptable, these nut cases should be locked up and left alone.

Better not tell him about the Vinaya rules or any other fast he might encounter on his sex tour.
If they want to celebrate Ramadan in peace why don't they go to a country that actually celebrates it?

I hope they are not allowed to cause disruption to the olympic games or fellow londoners who have no interest in religion, why can't they pray at home instead.

Excellent idea. I shall suggest this to the dean of Winchester cathedral next December. It's always full of cunts determined to celebrate Christmas in a church.
Think they'd go to these lengths to accommodate we Catholics? Would they chuff!!!!

Quite so, I recall when the Pope came to visit, the government told him to get in a taxi like every other tourist.
