NHS withdraws faith-based fasting advice after NSS request for review

NHS Choices has removed advice which drew heavily on Islamic theology from its website and will consider replacing it after the National Secular Society requested its review.
Earlier this month we asked NHS Choices to reconsider the contents of a page on its website which purported to advise people on fasting during Ramadan. We said the advice breached its standards of impartiality and commitment to evidence-based information.
The advice included lines such as "children are required to fast when they reach puberty". On the question 'Can I use an asthma inhaler during Ramadan?' it said "Muslim experts have differing opinions on this issue".
It also said breastfeeding mothers should make up for their lack of fasting at a later date, people on dialysis should "perform fidyah" (pay a form of 'compensation' for missing the fast) and it was "a good idea" for children to "practise fasting for a few hours at a time".
NHS Choices said the advice was "put together by medical experts and Islamic scholars and researchers".
In our correspondence we asked NHS Choices to "remove references to theological teachings" to comply with its own stated policy of "providing objective, impartial and evidence-based information on healthcare".
NHS Choices has now taken down the page and told us it will consider how it could "better meet user needs around this topic", including by possibly producing new content.
Dr Antony Lempert, the coordinator of the NSS's Secular Medical Forum, welcomed the decision to withdraw the guidance.
"Whether or not Muslim scholars have differing opinions on health-related issues, it is vital that patients receive accurate, safe medical advice. Some patients, relying on NHS Choices advice, might have put their health at serious risk by not using their asthma inhalers for example.
"All medical advice produced by NHS Choices must be based on best medical practice."
Stephen Evans, the NSS's chief executive, said: "Many British Muslims choose to fast during Ramadan and the NHS may well have a legitimate purpose in producing content for their benefit. But that advice should be impartial and balanced, not based on Islamic theology.
"The advice the NHS has now removed was not appropriate for a secular body relied upon to help patients and the public make informed choices about their health. The NHS is right to review it and we'll keep a close eye on any new advice that it may promote in the future."
The information was last reviewed in 2017 and the next review was not due until April 2020. This year's Ramadan finished last week.

Jack Renshaw admits planning to murder MP Rosie Cooper

An alleged member of a banned neo-Nazi group has admitted planning to murder a Labour MP in an act of what he termed "white jihad", a jury has heard.

Jack Renshaw, 23, pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to preparing an act of terrorism by buying a machete to kill West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper.
He also admitted making a threat to kill police officer Victoria Henderson.
Renshaw, of Skelmersdale, Lancashire, is one of six men on trial who deny being in the group National Action.
The other accused are: Christopher Lythgoe, 32, and Michal Trubini, 35, both from Warrington; Matthew Hankinson, 24, from Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside; Andrew Clarke, 33, from Prescot, Merseyside, and Garron Helm, 24, from Seaforth, Merseyside.
Mr Lythgoe also denies encouragement to murder by allegedly giving Renshaw permission to kill Ms Cooper on behalf of the group.
Renshaw had previously denied the two charges, but changed his pleas at the start of his trial.
Prosecutors said Renshaw wanted to take hostages to lure Det Con Henderson to the scene so he could kill her too.
But the court heard the plan was foiled after a disenchanted former member of National Action reported the threat to Hope Not Hate, an organisation seeking to combat extreme right-wing political racism

The six men deny membership of a proscribed organisation

Religion & school should not be together in any form. Religion belongs in places of worship, nowhere else.

Parents protest imposition of religious status on Norfolk school

The National Secular Society has backed parents who are protesting against the merger of a non-religious school into a Christian one in Norfolk.
The parents held a demonstration outside Trafalgar College in Great Yarmouth on Thursday against the merger of the college with the Christian school Great Yarmouth Charter Academy. They expressed fears that religion will be imposed on their children.
Trafalgar, which does not have a religious ethos, will close. All its pupils are set to re-locate to the Charter Academy site, which will retain its religious designation. This effectively means a non-religious school will be closed in order to expand a religious school.

One can only wish that all potential Islamic terrorist were as dysfunctional as these.

Safaa Boular: How a teenage girl turned to terror by organising a tea party

Teenager Safaa Boular has been found guilty of plotting an attack as part of the UK's first all-female terror cell. The case has revealed the workings of a truly dysfunctional family.
April 2017 - five bangs rang out as heavily armed police fired CS gas into a suburban home. As the officers broke into the property in north-west London, a 21-year-old woman was shot.
Screaming in pain and in anger, Rizlaine Boular was dragged to the street to receive first aid.
"Don't touch me, my body, don't touch my dress," witnesses heard her shout, as she wrestled feebly with the officers.
She was one of the targets of a major surveillance operation.
More than 50 miles away, Rizlaine's mother, Mina Dich was arrested outside the Medway Secure Training Centre - a youth prison. There, her daughter Safaa was already awaiting trial, having just turned 17.
Safaa's sister and mother were about to join her in custody, accused of the first all-female terror plot in the UK.
When Safaa Boular, now 18, eventually took to the witness box in her defence, she was every inch the professionally minded student.

Wear what you like, no law says I have to like it, but I disagree with face covering.

Comment by Stephen on May 31, 2018 at 12:21pm

We must answer the question what is the difference between the Burqa, Niqab and Hijab.

Here is a photo answering that question.

Now that we know what the differences are what is your opinion about the banning  of these attires

I think we should be wary of trying to ban any religious clothing. The  Hijab has nothing to answer for but the others are more problematic, but still, I waver on people being free to wear what they like.

What is your opinion?

Comment by Stephen on May 31, 2018 at 11:46am

I as an atheist don't support a ban on the Burqa even though I think it's anti-woman to force a woman to wear it.

Denmark joins some European nations in banning burqa, niqab

Denmark joined some other European countries in deciding Thursday to ban garments that cover the face, including Islamic veils such as the niqab or burqa.
In a 75-30 vote with 74 absentees, Danish lawmakers approved the law presented by the center-right governing coalition. The government says that it is not aimed at any religions and does not ban headscarves, turbans or the traditional Jewish skull cap.

Man who urged Prince George attack admits terror charges

An Islamic State supporter who called for jihadis to attack Prince George has admitted a string of terror charges.
Husnain Rashid, 32, of Leonard Street in Nelson, Lancashire, brought his trial at Woolwich Crown Court to a halt with a dramatic change of plea.
Nearly two weeks into his trial Rashid was re-indicted and pleaded guilty to three counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts.
He also admitted one count of encouraging terrorism.
Rashid will be sentenced on 28 June at the same court for the offences spanning from October 2016 to April this year.
