In a bid to spread the message of communal harmony, Shri Sita Ram temple in Ayodhya planned to do something great. The temple hosted an Iftar meal on May 20.
Hindus and Muslims sat together to enjoy the Iftar meal in temple premises. Incidents like this one make sure that love, compassion and humanity are above everything else in the world.
The priest of the temple Yugal Kishor told news agency ANI, “This is the third time we have organised an Iftar party. I will continue to do the same in the future as well. We should celebrate every festival with great zeal.”
Showing the similar incidents, an attendee Mujammil Fiza added that he also celebrates Navratri with his Hindu friends each year.
“People with an agenda do not want communities to come together and hold an event like this. In a country where people play politics in the name of religion, people like Yugal Kishor send out a message of love,” he added.
It is well known that during the holy month of Ramzan, the Muslim community fasts for 30 days and does not even consume food or water from sunrise to sunset. Their day begins with a Sehri (a pre-dawn meal) and ends with Iftar – post-dawn meal.
