    No water or any kind of food or liquid while the sun is up. No chewing gum or smoking cigarrettes either.

    Just to inject some politics and ethnic strife: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2013...n_3588106.html

    Personally i think the teacher didn't do anything particularly bad and i'm glad it was taken care of with a conversation rather than hysteria and lawsuits. However, the questions raised (primarily in some of the comments) are kind of interesting. Does the school have a duty to enforce the parents' rules? If one (or more) children are doing something and the others are not who is disrespecting whom? This is why, to some degree i think public schools (in the US sense) are problematic. Forget religion specifically, but how can you perpetuate your beliefs if they're undermined by the state's indoctrination machines ? :-)

    I've been going to a 24 hour fitness after sunset, I get there about 9:00pm and finish at about 11:00pm, home by 12:00am. I do however have classes in the evening, so I sleep the whole morning.

    Ive fasted a few days (not really a practising muslim but I dabble) All the muslims at gyms and myself found training about 3 hours before sunset optimal. Nice slow paced session. Trying to cram in in a session during the night when there is sleep, eating and Tarawih etc if you prescribe to that. The daytimes during fasting are big long expanses of tedium, best to occupy oneself.

    The teacher was absolutely in the wrong. As a figure of authority, they should realise that what they tell a small child is unlikely to be questioned. Why would a non-Muslim child have to consider other, fasting children when they need water?

    IMHO, it's verging on abuse making children fast anyway.
