Rabat A diabetic person was beaten up by a mob of people after he was seen drinking water in broad daylight during Ramadan in Rabat.
The information was reported by a doctor who shared a video on YouTube where he denounced the incident. In the video, which is being widely shared on social media, the doctor explains how his patient, who suffered from diabetes since he was a child, was assaulted for drinking water.
The doctor expresses his frustration at the ignorance that reigns among large segments of Moroccans, as well as in the Moroccan penal code, which punishes those who publicly break their fast with a fine and a sentencing of up to six months in prison.
The penal code is a joke and a disgrace for Morocco. We are not living in the times of Ottomans or in the Middle Ages, the doctor said, calling on the government to respect its international commitments in terms of the respect of human rights.
Every year, the holy month of Ramadan, which is supposed to be a month of mercy, devotion and piety, brings with it its share of controversy over people who break the fast in public.

That oh so tolerant religion of peace again.
Mr. Obama must’ve been distracted looking at basketball prospects.
It’s all about the Sharia and the drive to a peaceful society.
This goal justifies all Extreme force, and any other means
Fun in the sun in muzzie land.
“We are not living in the times of Ottomans or in the Middle Ages”
Oh yes you are.
And Morocco is often trotted out as the home of easy-going Mohammadans...
Hmm, as a Christian, I can’t remember the last time someone was beaten up for skipping Church on Sunday. Nice “religion” they’ve got there in muzzy land, be faithful or else. Kind of reminds me of another “organization” that you don’t ever leave once you join.
Savages. And Morocco is the least radical muzlum country. Keep them all out.

But the MuSlimes did show mercy , the man is still alive... they didn’t beat him to death.
And this is a “moderate” Muslim country.
“...he was seen drinking water in broad daylight...”
Sounds like the punchline of a Hee-Haw joke.
“And Morocco is often trotted out as the home of easy-going Mohammadans...”
I think that’s just for the tourist parts. The US used to have an air base there in the 1950’s, for long range bombers as part of anti-Soviet deterrence. Then some incident happened in Lebanon, and they kicked the US forces out...muslim solidarity and all.
Interesting. I hadn’t known that.
My grandfather was station there...and the part I find amazing is that it was an accompanied tour - as in my grandmother and young father were there with him too.
Even more amazing, given their mission, they surely had nuclear bombs sitting there in Morocco.
Not long ago, I found this link, with a lot of photos:
Seems like a very strange alternate reality - from baseball to burkas.
Thanks for that information. Fascinating. Signs of trouble even then with someone burgling their house and their dog being kicked to death by their own gardener.
My favorite caption from one of the photos “Typical Moslem tradition - men can show legs and more but women are prohibited. I think the men enjoyed seeing a Catholic nun.”
