  1. There are many who just could not bear to let go of the laid-back approach to work, during the month of Ramazan.

    Men, now, fast additional more days, to show off their piousness, but more so, to justify their laziness to work. They would rather, do their yoga in a mosque, sleep till 10 in the morn, barely touch the work.

    Then you ask, why Mordisian businessmen prefer expats to work??

  2. Another superfluous religious holiday invented by politicians to appease the masses; and as expected commercialized by the merchant class to profit them. The plebs are being killed, raped, robbed. Injustice is rampant. The wealth-gap has never been wider. Mullahs are pumping them with the religion drug while drug lords are pumping them with psychotropic drugs. Those who dare to question are beaten down by the religious police. In this stifling atmosphere, no peasant Dhivehistani can celebrate Eid. It is a holiday only for the elite.
