For many people, Ramadan is a horror movie that lasts a whole month. They take risks every day just to have a sip of water or eat while no one is watching
In the Gulf states nearly everyone does not fast yet everyone pretends they are fasting. Home food delivery foods jump 400% during the day in Ramadan. Restaurants know it, politicians who have raised it several times know it, delivery drivers know it, the neighbors who see it delivered know it because they thought it was coming to them and this is how we know they are not fasting either. THIS WHOLE THING IS A JOKE!!!
Why all this? Because if they did allow the people to eat freely, the scale of how many people do not follow Islam will shock them…that is why.
