What is your opinion of the tradition in other countries to shut down commerce for Muslim holidays?
Each time when the ‘Islamic fast month’ come no one in this country(Indonesia) is allowed to eat or even open their food store/restaurant/cafe,or else from morning until afternoon(14 hours) in the respect for people in this belief during this particular ‘holy month’. There’s no such rule in this country national rule and it only exist as some norm/particular religion. But when some people are known to violate this particular religion rule people in this religion will sabotage and blame them,claiming that those disrespectful people(non-Muslim) open their food store to let Islamic people fall to their temptation and become disrespectful toward their own religion. It’s weird to say,but our government encourage this action,they even help those people to do this action(eliminating/banning food related source during this particular month). Seems like our national rule has been over consumed by the majority of certain particular norm/religion rule. This government never sustain/protect other religion as good as when they sustain/protect the Islamic religion.
So to tell you the truth,during this month non-Muslim people that depends their food from external sources will not be allowed to open their store or even eat their homemade food in front of the Muslim,and of course they must go hungry during this particular month. So,I need to see what can you say about this behavior?. Should the Muslim people take over the right of all non-Muslim people?. Do you think our government really encourage their action and let discrimination to happen?. And finally,who disrespect who in this country?
