The UK’s Deputy High Commissioner Karachi Elin Burns had experienced a fast for the first time and hosted an Iftar dinner for her guests and colleagues. She said that thrust would be more challenging for her during fast rather than hunger and that she had also missed her morning cup of coffee.

“I decided to fast because I haven’t seen my fast here in Pakistan although it is my second Ramadan since arriving”, she said.

“It really surprised me, which actually relatively was an easier one to fast once I decided to do it. I really enjoyed the experience although I have to admit that I have huge sympathy and admiration for my friends in the UK who are fasting because in Pakistan Iftar is at 7:15pm rather than 9. I was definitely ready to open my fast with a drink(Roh Afzah) and the date”, she further said while explaining her experience of having fast.
