Some people -in order not to offend- become hypocritical.

They pretend righteousness in order not to offend others by their sins.

They may also pretend fasting so as not to offend people while in fact they are not fasting. In this way, they fall into two sins: breaking the fast and hypocrisy.

One should not feign righteousness to avoid being a cause of offense! The right thing is to behave well and be actually righteous in order not to offend people.
