Kerala On Its Way To Becoming The Coolest State As A Temple Hosts Iftar Party

Published on 2 June, 2017 at 6:09 pm By

Aren’t we tired of reading about communal violence and people spewing hatred towards each other in a country which is known to be secular? Setting an example of communal harmony, a temple in Kerala decided to remind us of the true essence of being Indian. Kerala and awesomeness are surely becoming synonymous with each other.

Lekshmi Narasimha Murthy Vishnu Temple in Malappuram had 500 families over for an Iftar party out of which 100 people belonged to different communities and 400 were Muslim families.

Temple Committee Secretary, PT Mohanan, told The News Minute,

We have grown up in an atmosphere of religious harmony. What matters for us is humanity, not religion. Everybody has the right to follow their religion or caste, but it does not mean that we should not be friendly to people of other religion. We should not close our heart from welcoming people of other religion.

The turnout at the Iftar party was so huge that the temple could not accommodate everyone. Therefore, the feast was held at the house of Mammu Master. It is notable that 300 Muslims funded the renovation of the temple.

The increasing hate speech and Hindu-centric nationalism has been sending a message of intolerance among the people of this country. To see a Hindu temple paying respect to a Muslim festival is bound to induce happy tears. Addressing the same issue, one of the organizers told Asianet news,

Our ancestors, despite belonging to different caste and creed, co-existed peacefully, but the younger generation is not clued up on our past. Hence, we wanted to spread the message of brotherhood and peace by hosting an Iftar party this year.
