This one for my brethren at the Biggest Mall of Kuwait , working for this certain ‘Retail empire’, They are going to be open 10 am to 2am , that means they are open “BEFORE , DURING AND AFTER ‘IFTAR’ . I wouldn’t be writing this post if we weren’t in Kuwait . Kuwait being a Muslim Country where every person, muslim or non muslim takes brake during the Iftar hours . The streets are totally deserted while every one prays , breaks fast , watches some TV , relax . I felt sorry for the staff , may be there are muslims among them fasting , yet forced to work , or were the non Muslims made to work the ‘iftar’ hours on ‘religious prejudice’ basis?. I’m not a Muslim myself , but i have seen 14 Ramadan’s in Kuwait and never as a retail sales person i have worked during the Iftar . Ramadan is about fasting , forgiveness , but It is a sad sad sad day for ‘ my community’ . This is the lowest point the retail market could ever see . If it were a supermarket or Bakala i would understand …but this is ‘retail shopping ‘ … so this is difficult for me to grasp . I know Business is difficult these days , every penny counts, but come on !! its Ramadan … where is the Spirit of Ramadan to your fellow being ?
Whats next ? 24 hours of retail shopping ? why not ?
