Ramadan: Fasting in times of crisis

10 July 2013

The festival of Ramadan is an important occasion for Muslims to fast and devote time to their loved ones, yet this year's festival will be very different, according to EFD Policy Advisor Ahmad Mansour, as many countries across the Middle East are in the grip of civil strife and in the case of Syria, hundreds of families have been torn apart by conflict.

The German-language TV network 3sat talks with Mansour about how Muslims are coping during this religious period. This interview is in German and can be viewed here.
