Fasting man killed swan to eat
LLANDUDNO A Muslim who killed a swan while fasting during Ramadan has been given a two-month prison sentence.
Shamsu Miah, 52, killed the mute swan at a boating pond in Llandudno, North Wales, on September 25.When challenged by police he said: “I am a Muslim, I am fasting, I needed to eat.” Llandudno magistrates were told that Miah, from the town, had white feathers stuck in his beard and blood on his shirt. Jim Neary, for the prosecution, said: “The officers told him the swan was the property of the Queen and he replied, ‘I hate the Queen, I hate this country’.”
See not eating doesn't do you any good - any one knows that preparing a swan for roasting or a pie takes time and delicacy, not a mad knifing on the boating pond...
