Keeping aside politics, an average Muslim is part of our society. I bet, each one of us have several Muslim best friends, classmates, housemaids, our drivers. One point in time, hatred need to be stopped.— Vinayak Nadiger (@vinadiger) January 19, 2020
This was a great initiative. I was made to feel so welcomed inside the mosque. They served excellent biryani too!— Palak Singh Mittal (@palaksingoat) January 19, 2020
Even though the current political situation is disturbing to say the least, the initiative was successful.
