To our question last fortnight: Should people in public office use religion and places of worship to resolve political disputes?

In fact, even the walls and columns of offices should be devoid of religious images.

Our question this fortnight: Taken up by politicians and godmen alike, has fasting lost its moral high ground and been reduced to blackmail?
