The Commander-General of Kano Hisbah, Nabahani Usman, has said from Monday when Ramadan begins, his men will begin to arrest adults who are seen eating in public.

Usman said arrested persons would only be released if they can provide an exemption letter from a medical doctor or the person can show proof of chronic ulcer.


The Hisbah boss told the BBC that when such a person has provided evidence, he or she would be released with a warning not to eat in public anymore.

The Sharia boss had during the week arrested several sex workers and criminals ahead of the holy month.

He said Ramadan was a special month for Muslims and anybody that practised Islam must fast.

Kano State has been practising Sharia law since 2001 when former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso signed the bill creating Hisbah.

"He said Ramadan was a special month for Muslims and anybody that practised Islam must fast" which means as a christian living in Kano I can eat in the public if I delare that I am a christain, I mean this should be made known too that christians are exempted, but by the way is it a must?

There is something I want to understand, does it mean Christian's can't eat publicly during the fasting period ? So if a Christian has a restaurant he/she can't open it that Muslim fasting hours?
