MUSLIM CHILDREN BANNED FROM SWIMMING DURING RAMADAN IN CASE THEY SWALLOW WATER AND BREAK THEIR FAST!
Swimming lessons in some Staffordshire schools should stop during Ramadan to ensure Muslim pupils "do not swallow water", a council has suggested.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council has issued an 11-page Ramadan guide for schools to help pupils who may be fasting when the school year starts in September.
It said swimming was acceptable to Muslims but posed a high risk of swallowing water that may break a fast.
FUCK ME! I thought we were getting rid of this shite. IS IT OK IF THEY SPIT IT OUT? (I was going to make a comment about girls and gays there but I better not.)
