The famous Udupi Sri Krishna Temple in Karnataka organised an Iftar on the temple premises on Saturday night.
‘Souharda Upahara Koota’ or the harmony breakfast meet was attended by over 150 members of the Muslim community at the temple’s Annabrahma Dining Hall, according to a report in The News Minute.
The idea for organising such an event was mooted by Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Paryaya Pejawar Mutt. He also served dates to those who attended the Iftar.
He urged the people of Karnataka to live in communal harmony.
“People from all religions must be tolerant and co-exist peacefully. Muslims have shown lot of affection for me in Mangaluru, Kasaragod and Bhatkal. They have given their offering during the Paryaya festival,” The News Minute quoted him as saying.
The members of the Muslim community also performed namaz on the second floor of the building, the report said.
