Muslims have taken to Twitter to express their anger at President Barack Obama after he tweeted a blessing for the holy month of Ramadan, the Washington Times reports
In his tweet, the president said: "I wish Muslims across America & around the world a month blessed with the joys of family, peace & understanding."
But some Muslims were not impressed and questioned the sincerity of the U.S. commander-in-chief when prisoners are being force fed at Guantanamo Bay and the U.S. military has used drone strikes in the Middle East.
"Obama wishing Muslims a happy Ramadan while he drone bombs them is like Hitler wishing Auschwitz a happy hanukkah #samedifference #ramadan,” one Twitter follower raged.
"I am assuming Obama's greetings to Muslims wrt Ramadan are also directed at Muslims he will be force feeding at #GTMO during that month," another wrote.
And another tweeted: "My mom just told me that Barack Obama wished all Muslims a happy Ramadan, I told her that maybe he should stop killing us too."
The Council On American-Islamic Relations has also called on Obama to ban the practice of force feeding.
"We believe it’s wrong to force feed at any time but it is particularly upsetting to do it through Ramadan," council spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told London's Guardian newspaper.
