Sending a Signal

Sometimes the smallest thing can speak loudly. In this case it is numbers an independent TV station in Munich, Germany, is broadcasting in a corner of it screen, the times of the beginning and end of the Ramadan fast. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast between sunrise and sunset. It is a gesture towards the Muslim community, but in an era of such resistance to immigrants and particularly Muslim immigrants, it acquires much meaning. Yet, the head of marketing at the station put it more simply, “One can theorize a lot about integration, but we simply wanted to send a clear signal for once.”
Why couldn’t other stations in Germany, Europe and the U.S. send the same signal too?
