The real story is how ABC’s headline is about bombs going off but the entire 2 page article is nothing more than a puff piece on the wonders and magic of peaceful happy joy joy Ramadan and how hard it is to calculate the start and how its all about fasting, piety and good deeds. ABC is disgusting.
Below, is a much more accurate and dare I say even academic analysis of Ramadan:
Ramadan’s Start Marred by Bomb Blasts in Thailand
Millions of Muslims began fasting Friday at the start of the holy month of Ramadan in Indonesia and Thailand, where the somber occasion was marred by two bomb blasts that killed one person and injured seven, officials said.
The Muhammadiyah group, Indonesia’s second-largest Muslim organization, told its 30 million followers that Ramadan starts Friday. The government, however, declared the official start as Saturday when most of the remaining 190 million Indonesians will begin the annual dawn-to-dusk fasting for a month.
Muslims in the Buddhist dominated Thailand also began Ramadan on Friday, while India, Pakistan, Malaysia and Bangladesh will start Saturday or Sunday.
