Muslim Rashtriya Manch, an RSS affiliate group is hosting a grand ‘Iftar’ in Delhi on July 2 for which it has invited ambassadors of many countries including Muslim nations like Pakistan to spread the message of unity and harmony.
The iftar party in the Capital would be a much bigger affair this time. It has also asked its members to hold the event across the country.
“The aim is to tell the world about Indian-ness, helping people from all communities live in peace and harmony...India is a ray of hope and peace for the Muslim world,” RSS leader and patron of the Manch Indresh Kumar said.
Citing holy scriptures, Kumar said even the Prophet has said that whenever he felt disturbed, he felt spiritual waves of peace and love coming from the east and referred to ‘Hindustan’ and that the day will come, when the message of peace and love will flow from Bharat.
“Charity begins at home...all should live in harmony and help make the country free of riots and the world including India free from violence including terrorism,” he said in his appeal to the minority community members.
Kumar also said that he has urged the community members to plant a sapling to curb pollution and bring home the holy sapling (Tulsi) at home and worship it, saying it is referred to as “Rehan, also called the ‘plant of heaven’ in the holy Quran”.
The RSS leader said there should be no discrimination in slogans in favour of the country, irrespective of the language used, and said people should break free from the shackles of communalism to avoid spreading hatred in humanity.
The Manch had organised a similar iftar for some diplomats in Delhi, but this time it is being organised on a bigger scale.
Kumar said that invites to diplomats of 35 to 40 Muslim nations and some others have been sent.
