TUNIS — How sad and ridiculous, the thing is that I have lived in Tunisia for years.. and every Ramadan, many many Tunisians chose to eat (in hiding and behind closed doors). So much for change, freedom and democracy!! HAHA!! Religion is an intimate affair. And so is religious fasting. They are about improving oneself, not others. Imposing them upon others is simply bullying. A practice worthy of dictators. Religion and religious law are important… for those who believe they are important.
*I like and agree with this comment, made by @Mark: “the problem is that many Muslims don’t want to observe Ramadan they are ‘Muslim’ (and this speaks as well for other Religions) because they were born there but they don’t subscribe to the principles. O deep joy…cant make a choice in this country… Ramadan is important only to practicing Muslims why cant they accept that. they should not encourage tourists to come during that period if there is nothing for them to eat at the cafe’s etc.,…give up that period of tourism and pray that Allah provides…Let the tourists go elsewhere.
the elderly and the sick should still be allowed to eat in the cafe’s if they want or need to. Why does everything have to be with a big stick”
