I appeal to authorities to show compassion to our non-Muslim guests during Ramadan.

Every year thousands of non-Muslims have to skip a meal or find it difficult to eat, as all restaurants are closed during the day time.

Why can't the restaurants be allowed to serve food behind closed shutters. If this is not acceptable, at least allow them to deliver food to homes and offices, where people can eat in privacy.

As a fasting Muslim, I can't understand the logic in denying food to someone and forcing him or her to suffer just because I choose to fast. This is my choice, not forced by anyone.

Denying food to those who wish to eat smacks of intolerance, and it is about time this law was changed to show more compassion to others on our island.

I believe the UAE allows restaurants to deliver and some operate with shutters down. Surely Bahrain can follow the same? Live and let live Fasting Bahraini!

 

Share your thoughts and views on non-Muslims resident in Muslim countries during Ramadan: should they show respect and eat privately? Should access to food during fasting hours be made easier?

i agree with you
It's not like when Christians fast, muslims are forced to fast as well, so its only fair.
