Islamic Officials Disguise As Waiters To Catch Muslims Not Fasting To Be Punished

Islamic officials disguise as waiters to catch Muslims not fasting and offenders can be punished with up to 6 months in jail
It has been reported that some Malaysian officials have disguised as waiters in restaurants to catch Muslims who are not participating in the on-going Ramadan fast.

32 enforcement officers in the Malaysian district of Segamat are dressing up as cooks and waiters to catch Muslims who choose to eat during the holy month of Ramadan, the New Straits Times newspaper reported on Thursday.

Freshreporters News understood that some department’s officers were selected from the ranks to carry out task as a tea-brewers and noodle chefs being Ramadan Police.

These officials will be placed at 185 food premises where they will identify Muslims who aren't fasting, snap a photo of them, and send it to the local religious affairs department.

Segamat Municipal Council president Mohamad Masni Wakiman told the New Straits Times: "We have specially selected enforcement officers who are dark skinned for the undercover job,"

It was further gathered that dark skinned officials were chosen because their cover will be more convincing since many restaurant staff are migrants workers.


Wakiman added: "They sound convincing when they speak in Indonesian and Pakistani lingo, so that customers will believe they are really hired to cook and serve meals and take menu orders."

If a Muslim is caught breaking the fast by one of the officers, he or she might face a fine of up to $329 or up to six month detention or both.
