Why fighting over religion as we all live in the same country? Setting an example of communal harmony, a temple in Ayodhya hosted an Iftar meal in its premises. In the holy month of Ramzan, people cutting across religious lines, sat together to relish the Iftar meal in the premises of Shri Sita Ram temple.
Happens only in India
During this holy month, the devotees fast for about 30 days and do not consume food or water from early morning until early evening. They eat Sehri (a pre-dawn meal) and break the day-long fast with Iftar in the evening. Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of the fasting month of Ramzan. The festival is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic lunar calendar.
In a show of great harmony in Ayodhya, Shri Sita Ram temple hosted an Iftar meal in its premises on Monday. Speaking to the media, the priest of the temple, Yugal Kishor said, “This is the third time we have organized an Iftar party. I will continue to do the same in the future as well. We should celebrate every festival with great zeal,” ANI Report.

Speaking with similar sentiments, an attendee Mujammil Fiza said that he also celebrates Navratri with his Hindu brethren every 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.
People all over the country praised this gesture
