Pic­ture of left­over if­tar food sparked lively de­bate on­line

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

“Dis­gust­ing. I was al­ways taught by my par­ents to fin­ish every­thing on my plate and never to waste food. Scraps of left­over food was al­ways given to the an­i­mals or used to make com­pose to fer­tilise the gar­den. No cul­ture, re­li­gion, coun­try or per­son should waste food.” FIONA VAN BUREN

“I’ve been liv­ing here for over 26 years now and peo­ple still haven’t changed not only in restau­rants, just look at the bins out­side their homes the foods that they throw is shame­ful.” LOUR­DES YOSHIOKA VISITACION

“Yes!! I have been to two if­tars in my 8 years in dubai !! its mas­sively ex­pen­sive and waste­ful! It’s im­pos­si­ble to eat so much right af­ter 15 hours of fast­ing.”


“I beg to dif­fer. They might have thought they’d eat a lot af­ter fast­ing dur­ing the day and ended up eat­ing only a lit­tle instead. It’s their money and frankly no one’s busi­ness what they choose to eat, pick at or dis­card. Whats next? Go­ing af­ter shop­pers in malls buy­ing high value items instead of cheaper ones be­cause it’s a waste of money and folks need to eat? If you want to do­nate to char­ity, do­nate to char­ity, don’t make oth­ers your ex­cuse.”


“Waste is sin­ful. Ob­vi­ously you need to learn your re­li­gious du­ties bet­ter.”
