Re: “Vermont Muslims Strengthen Ties During Ramadan

Here's some real journalistic questions to ask the Islamic community of Vermont during Ramadan:
1. What percentage of your pregnant women are fasting? Do you know that fasting pregnant women have higher cortisol and their babies have more cognitive and academic issues?
2. How many of your young children are being encouraged to fast from food and water in the middle of summer? Is it healthy for children as young as 6 or 7 to be attempting to fast as seems to be common amongst Muslims? Be sure to ask the children themselves: they will tell you the truth.
3. How do you feel about the massive death toll in Pakistan during the recent heatwave that coincided with Ramadan? Should religious authorities have ordered the Muslim population to stop fasting in those conditions? Are you happy with the guidelines to protect the health of people who think they risk hellfire for breaking their fasts and do not know what to do?
