Woman Arrested for Chewing Gum

This is something so totally crazy, I must share it. From Arab Times Online:

Kuwait : A woman was arrested on the first day of Ramadan for breaking her fast by chewing gum. According to sources, security officers from the Hawalli governorate spotted the woman chewing gum at 5:30 am while they were on patrol duty. When they questioned her about the act, she said she had the personal freedom to do as she pleased. She was referred to the authorities and a case was registered.

That's pure evil, plain and simple.

Mufti Ebrahim Desai from the FATWA DEPT agrees.
