The Shri Sita Ram temple in Ayodhya recently hosted Iftar for those fasting during Ramzan, sending a strong message in securalism and inclusion.
A report from Hindustan Times suggests this is the third time the temple has organised Iftar for muslim devotees in its premises.
Speaking to ANI on the topic, temple’s priest Yugal Kishor said:
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.
And they do celebrate every festival with great zeal, as an attendee Mujammil Fiza points out:
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 Kishor send out a message of love.
People on the internet were touched and said they truly support this gesture.
