German entertainment TV marks Ramadan fasting times

11 August 2010

The private German TV station RTL 2, usually providing mass
entertainment, announces the times of sunrise and sunset during the
month of Ramadan. Hosting shows like Big Brother and small-scale
Hollywood movies, the station’s slogan is “It’s fun”. Unexpectedly, the
marketing directors have now decided to “send out a signal” for
integration and to mark the fasting periods. The unprecedented move was
welcomed by the Central Council of Muslims.
