Children have spread the message of communal harmony and demonstrated that the spirit of plurality is still present in India in the midst of the current situation of hatred and religious divisiveness. Since the beginning of Ramadan, students of various faiths have been organizing Iftar for their Muslim friends in Bidar, Karnataka. On a daily basis, students at the Shaheen Group of institutions prepare plates of fruits, pakoras, and Rooh Afza, among other things. While the Muslim students break their fast, their non-Muslim classmates serve them food and beverages.

A Hindu student stated that they prepare Iftar for their Muslim friends every day. “We find peace by doing this, and we also want to be a part of Ramadan,” she said, adding that she is happy to see such an environment, as reported by MuslimMirror. The Iftar fosters a sense of community and friendship among students of various faiths, emphasizing the importance of mutual respect and understanding between people of different faiths and cultures.

Another student stated that she was experiencing Ramadan for the first time in her life. “I feel very fortunate to be able to spend time helping my Muslim friends with Iftar,” she said, adding that the atmosphere at the Iftar promotes unity, as per the MuslimMirror.

According to Dr. Abdul Qadeer, founder of the Shaheen Group of Institutions, up to 4500 people attend the Iftar every day.

“Every day, Muslim and non-Muslim students on our campus observe the Iftar; while Muslims break their fast, non-Muslim students serve them.” According to Qader, this sends out messages of peace and love. He expressed his hope that these students will contribute to the betterment of society and the nation.

Qader further stated that students promote mutual respect, understanding, and tolerance by observing iftar together, regardless of religious or cultural differences. Serving food and drinks to their Muslim classmates reinforces the idea of communal harmony and emphasizes the importance of empathy and kindness in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, the MuslimMirror reported.
