The presenter of this video is impressed by the fact that all the restaurants are closed at lunchtime in the island of the Maldives which he claims to be a country that is 100% Muslim, that’s because it is the first day of Ramadan. As all the Muslims fast for the day, restaurants need not be open.
He is amazed to learn that in the Maldives and around the world, Muslims do not eat or drink anything for the whole day until sunset during the month of Ramadan.
He appreciates that almost 2 billion people agree that for this month you should try to be a better human, to learn humility and patience. And feel for the hungry and the poor and at the end of it, celebrate as a community. He points out towards the fact that this is a big part of the Muslim culture that sadly goes unnoticed and the media focuses on what’s bad.
