2014 - Morocco Ramadan DST changes - Easy fix solutions

Symptoms

The government of Morocco has announced its DST transitions for the observation of Ramadan in 2014.

According to the announcement, the DST period will be interrupted during the Muslim month of Ramadan (3 A.M. on Saturday, June 28, 2014 to at 2 A.M. on Saturday, August 2, 2014, in the Gregorian calendar).

During this period, clocks will be turned back to Standard Time. This interruption in the DST schedule is designed to shorten evenings, making it easier for Muslims to observe the Ramadan fast during hours of daylight.
