Ramadan Began Last Night; Minnesota Gives Religious Exemption From Curfew Order

Ramadan began last night. As reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz's 7:00 pm curfew order for several counties-- issued after 20-year-old Daunte Wright was shot and killed by police in a Minneapolis suburb-- contains an exemption for those traveling to and from religious services. The exemption was clarified after the Minnesota chapter of CAIR issued a statement calling for such an exemption.
