The holy month of Ramadan has begun in many parts of the world on Friday amid a severe and unusual lockdown.
Lockdown continues in most Muslim countries around the world due to the spread of the coronavirus, and authorities have banned congregational prayers and gatherings.
According to the French news agency AFP, the easing of lockdowns in some countries with the arrival of Ramadan has raised concerns about the spread of the virus.
This year, the month of Ramadan did not bring the traditional twists and turns for many in Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Because during Ramadan, there are restrictions on praying in congregation in mosques and meeting friends, and large-scale Iftar Parties.
In Dhaka, government officials have sealed off a centuries-old market that used to sell traditional Ramadan food.
The local police commissioner said this would be the first time in the market’s 400- year history that iftar items would not be sold here.
Sanctions imposed by Corona have also undermined the traditional cycle of Ramadan in Indonesia, the world’s most populous country. Religious organizations in Indonesia have called on people to stay indoors.
. “Ramadan is very different,” said Fitria Female, a housewife in Indonesia. “It’s not just a festival.”
