Debate on social media after Muslim journalist resents gift of alcohol
Well tell me if you have to go to someone to congratulate, or send something, what do you often send?
As there is a big tradition of bakery in Kashmir, all kinds of cakes, pastries, biscuits and if anything more important, kebabs, trays full of mash as well as baskets full of almonds go.
Similarly, somewhere fruit baskets, somewhere crates of juice, no? Now imagine that you are a writer or journalist and your publisher sends you wine as a gift, even in the month of Ramadan!
Obviously, this will not happen in Pakistan, but when it happened to Sarah Shafi, a freelance journalist living in the UK, she could not stand it. And what he tweeted after that seems to be not the first time this has happened to him.
