Netherlands: 'Fasting is your choice, your problem'

Muslims working in the TNT (mail company) sorting center in Nieuwegein are upset about the eating rules. The new Ramadan rules appeared earlier this month on the bulletin board: no praying during work and enforced breaks at set times.

For the evening shift, that's 8pm, an hour before the end of fasting. A worker told AD regarding his boss, "He says: fasting is your choice, your problem. Pure Wilders scenes."

TNT says it is a misunderstanding and it is possible to consult with management on whether it's possible to go eat.
