The question isn't what lengths will authorities go to in submission to Islam. The question is, what won't they do?
This speaks to the supremacism of Islam. It's one thing to fast during the day, it's another thing to force non-Muslims to adhere to this nonsense. You do not see this with other religions. Jews fast on Yom Kippur, but you never hear non-Jews fasting as well (in deference to the Jewish tradition). Same thing with bacon: observant Jews don't eat bacon. But they certainly don't care if anyone else does. Unlike Muslims .... who seek to impose their restrictions on non-Muslims.

Kora Blagden, 32, claimed a teacher at her son Luke’s school refused to let the 10-year old drink from his water bottle because it was unfair to fasting classmates. Many pupils at Charles Dickens Primary School, Portsmouth, Hampshire, are fasting during Ramadan, which means they refrain from taking food or water between sunrise and sunset for around 30 days, depending on the moon.Read the whole thing.
