Ali | 10 years ago | Reply Yeah Mr. Bunty. You are expressing very nice thought. I think there is no need to change bank timings in Ramdan. Cause they sit in extra cool environment and they don"t do so much physical and mental work that they will face any difficulty while fasting.
bunty | 10 years ago | Reply what a load of useless things!! whats the point of fasting when u are have smaller working hours?? might as well sleep unto iftari. how are we relate with people who go hungry when we are not simulating a normal day we spent other than ramadan
