In Summary, we feel really sad over this incident. Many Muslim brothers and sisters have expressed their disappointment and have encouraged the government to take actions against the school. This holy month should be respected by all regardless of religion and race. But asking the non-Muslims to not to eat in front Muslims defeats the whole purpose of fasting. Please be a human and you can be whatever you want after that.
