Muslim Athletes Disadvantaged in 2012 Olympic Games in London

The 2012 Olympic Games in London will coincide with the month of Ramadan, and therein disadvantage fasting Muslim athletes, says this article in Islam Pluriel. Approximately one quarter of the 11 099 athletes in the 2004 Games in Athens came from Muslim-majority countries. Massoud Shadjareh, president of the Islam Association of Human Rights based in London stated that the games would not have been organized during Christmas celebrations, so to have them during Ramadan demonstrates a lack of sensitivity.
