According to the Pakistani newspaper Express Tribune, Station House Officer (SHO) Kabil Bhayo of the Khanpur police station was suspended after he tortured, harassed, manhandled and arrested Hindu shopkeepers for allegedly “violating the Ramzan Ordinance” by eating.
The report said in a video that went viral on social media, the police officer was seen roaming the Ghotki district with a stick in his hands, using it to hit shoppers, including Hindu men who were reportedly preparing biryani for delivery orders in the local market.
“I swear that I belong to the Hindu community, and he is taking away food. We do not run the dining service indoors during Ramzan”, a man arrested by the police said.
However, the SHO publicly forced the Hindu restaurant owner to take an oath on his sacred book. The police officer arrested more than one dozen people after physically assaulting them.
In Austria, leaders of Muslim migrants demand that all the streets in the country should be ‘appropriately’ decorated to celebrate the month of Ramzan.
Austrian newspaper Unzensuriert said this year, from March 23 to April 21, Muslims will celebrate their month of fasting, Ramzan. During this time, according to the migrant party SÖZ (Social Austria of the Future), Vienna should decorate the streets in the heavily Islamized district of Favoriten with “appropriate decorations”.
The chairman of the SÖZ club in the 10th district of Vienna, Hakan Gördü, suggested this Ramzan decoration in a broadcast. “We hope,” it says, “that the City of Vienna will comply with our request and decorate the streets of Favoriten appropriately”. Gördü also emphasised that this action would be a wonderful way to celebrate the city’s diversity and raise awareness of different cultures and religions. Of course, the requirement also applies to the religious holidays of other faith communities (Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali or Vesak).
The migrant party SÖZ wants to use the Viennese tax money to ensure Vienna’s streets are designed according to their faith on holidays. This could probably even be implemented under SPÖ Mayor Michael Ludwig. His political pandering to Muslims is similar to that of Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen, who never forgets to congratulate “all Muslims” on the fasting month. See the “Twitter” post.
Zum Beginn des Fastenmonats #Ramadan wünsche ich allen Musliminnen und Muslimen eine friedvolle Zeit der Begegnung und der Gemeinschaft, in der man aufeinander achtet, miteinander gestaltet und voneinander lernt. (vdb) pic.twitter.com/tkovUGNhQN

For the Viennese FPÖ club chairman Maximilian Krauss and the liberal district chairman in Favoriten, member of the state parliament Stefan Berger, the demand for a Ramzan decoration is an “incomprehensible provocation by the Islamist lobby”, which should be rejected in the strongest possible terms. In one broadcast, they said:
While the discussion about crosses regularly flares up in the classrooms, Muslim festive decorations will now be hung up in Vienna. Austria, and thus also the federal capital, is a Christian country where freedom of religion is very important. However, this must not be misused for radical religious reasons.
