In the holy month of Ramazan, the Mankameshwar temple in Lucknow has organised an Iftar party to spread the message of communal harmony on Sunday.
According to an India Today report, it was for the first time that a temple hosted an Iftar. “Ramazan is a pious month and we should celebrate every festival with great zeal,” Mahant Divya Giri of the temple told ANI.
The Times of India had earlier reported that three cooks of the temple along with their helpers “will start preparing the Iftaar for over 500 people from Sunday morning”.
“This initiative will strengthen the bond between Hindu and Muslims,” Imam Abdul Manan said.
