Great - inflict more hunger, pain and scorn on the poorest of the poor. Fantastic way to show love for the Prophet. If I remember correctly - they didn't burn stuff and caused general violence when they were offended. Ishe-e-Jahalt more than anything else.

Celebrate the day with complete devotion?!!! cant u people be devoted to ur prophet without taking an off from work?!!! A nation should have atleast a few petrol pumps /CNG stations / Hostpitals/ Medical stores and other important services running no matter what, it might be a matter of life and death for some! Civilization is back in the stoneage out here !!
