A Ramadan grope

Life gets frustrating for Muslim men during Ramadan since there is no conjugal boinky-boinky:

A DISGRACED Muslim taxi driver tried to use the holy time of Ramadan as his defence against allegations he repeatedly grabbed the breast of a disabled female passenger.

Abdul Majid Qazizada, 51, had argued that Ramadan was a time when Muslim men “don’t even touch their wives”.

He was yesterday found guilty of the aggravated indecent assault of a 23-year-old woman who suffers cerebral palsy and epilepsy.

Magistrate Jennifer Betts said Qazizada claimed he was a devout Muslim who was fasting when the attack occurred in September last year.

” ‘Men don’t even touch their wives (during Ramadan)’, were his words,” Ms Betts said in Ryde Local Court.

An interesting if ineffective defence: a variation on “the devil made me do it”. “Your honour, Ramadan made me do it”.

  1. Good grief. That’s supposed to be an excuse?

  2. Sounds nice! I think you should see how it is to enjoy Ramadan in a cold country like Sweden. I’ve been doing it for about 17 years now, and I tell you one thing – you won’t ever forget the first time fasting in Sweden!

    By the way, I just subscribed to the RSS-feed of your blog. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you for a “friendly” post about Ramadan. I think it’s pretty sad, that wherever I go – I see people saying bad things about us Muslims. Just stop it! Spend time with a Muslim, become a Muslim, read books about the religion of Islam – and learn about it. You can’t say bad things about something you don’t know anything about. Yeah, sure – some Muslims are terrorists, but the majority of us aren’t. Quit the BS!
