Then he misinterpreted it..
It is meant that you should fast, while looking as if you were going about every day life.
It's basically meant to say, that you shouldn't 'brag' about fasting.
EX: If I were to fast for a month and go up to someone and say, "ya i've been fasting for a month or so now, you've only got what?? one week on you?"
Fasting should be kept between you and god.
You may have different beliefs, those are mine.
