Mayor Asks Londoners to Fast During Ramadan

Ad Feedback

The mayor of London is asking people to fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Boris Johnson says even if someone's not a Muslim, they should fast to experience Islamic life and to better understand their "Muslim neighbors."

Johnson also encourages Londoners to break their fast by going to the local mosque.

"Muslims are at the heart of every aspect of society. Their contribution is something that all Londoners benefit from," Johnson said.

Israel National News reports there's no word on whether Johnson plans to suggest Muslims and Christians fast on Yom Kippur in order to better understand their Jewish neighbors.
