Festivities are indeed tough during the global lockdown and things do not seem to be relaxing any time soon.
If you think celebrating the festivities in Malaysia is tougher than the usual, on netizen shared her experience celebrating Eid Al-Adha in the UK during the lockdown, which has an air of bias in part of the infection controls set in place.
@a_leesha1 took to Twitter to vent her frustrations as she was prohibited from seeing her grandparents due to the lockdown but a different story was witnessed at Brighton beach where visitors ignored lockdown procedure to spend a day in the sun.
“This was Brighton beach today, but I wasn’t allowed to see my grandparents in Bradford for Eid al-Adha. Pathetic & insulting.”
In her corresponding tweet, she compiled several responses she received, among them one said that the situation is incomparable to the Easter holiday where everyone was on lockdown.
She also mentioned how the provisions in place were illogical where house visits were not allowed but public meetings were.
“It is clearly flawed because it is not a full local lockdown like Leicester – I can’t see my grandparents in their house but can come in contact with randomers in pubs and restaurants.”
This however caused a divide amongst netizens, one netizen mentioned that the “Biggest cause of spread is gatherings in close quarters.”
“The beach with physical distancing is unlikely to create much of a spike or any at all. The virus also doesn’t spread from the water. Too large.”
Another sympathised with @a_leesha1, apologising that Eid had to be restricted.
“Imagine the white outcry if Christmas had been compromised.”
As the whole world is still coming to terms with the new norm lets be a little less sensitive when we see others getting off a bit easier than we do.
