The Ehteram-e-Ramzan Ordinance

According to The Ehteram-e-Ramzan Ordinance 1981, eating and drinking at public places during Ramzan has been prohibited. This law is being observed in the holy month of Ramzan to make sure that the sanctity of this Islamic month is ensured to the fullest.

Under the light of this ordinance, people are not allowed to eat, smoke and drink at public places. Due to this reason, most of the restaurants in Pakistan remain closed during the fasting hours and they get opened some time before Iftar to serve food. All the law enforcement bodies in Pakistan make sure that this ordinance is been followed by the people of the country.

However, this ordinance is not for the canteens in schools, colleges, railways stations and hospitals. Pakistan is a country where there are many minorities. No matter how respectful the month of Ramzan is for the people, rights of minorities should always be respected.

If minorities belonging to other religions observe respect by not eating in public places, there can be specific restaurants in some parts of the city that shall stay open for them to have food during their working hours. In addition, canteens in schools and colleges are exempted from this law because of children. Railway stations have people coming from other parts 24/7, which will obviously not be fasting due to their journey. Hospitals have patients, which are not fasting if they are being told so by the doctors so food should always be available to them.

Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
