Majority of Muslims in Arab countries want non-believers to be forced to observe Ramadan

A survey in Arab countries conducted by Maktoob Research shows that 62 per cent of Muslims think that non-Muslims living in Muslim countries should not eat or drink in public during Ramadan, while 52 per cent believe that all restaurants should be closed during the day — even to non-believers — as a mark of respect to Islam. The survey included 6,128 respondents from across the Arab world.
