Iftar Dinner at a Gurdwara, with Muslims, Sikhs and Christians eating together.

The evening of 22 June was special for those who were at the Sikh Gurdwara in Jebel Ali in Dubai. The Gurdwara organised an Iftar party for the Ramadan observing Muslim guests. Muslim speakers spoke about the importance of Ramadan fasting for Muslims and broke their fast.

All of this started last year when the Islamic Al Manar Centre started inviting guests from different faiths for Iftar. The Gurdwara decided to return the hospitality last year and invited the Muslims for Iftar. Christians and members of three Churches were also part of the invite. The organisers have also suspended the distribution of langar packets during the month of Ramadan.

Surinder Singh Kandhari, Chariman of the Gurdwara committee told the media that the basic message across all religions was the same which is “to forget our egos and submit ourselves to God.”

This is indeed a heartening thing to see and we hope these small steps towards communal harmony continue.
