Iftar Party in Kerala Church Spreads Message of Love and Communal Harmony
An ancient church in Kerala became the perfect setting for communal harmony, hosting an iftar party on Thursday for the Ramadan month.

The iftar was organised in St. Mary's Forane church Athirampuzha.

People from all faiths took part in the iftar that aimed to spread the message of love.

"The world is witnessing communal divide. Everyone should live as the children of the same parents. Communal strife will lead to destruction of the world order," said Kunju Mohammad, Muslim cleric at nearby Athirampusha mosque.

Father Mani Puthyidam, parish priest at Athirampuzha church said, "It's easy to divide but difficult to unite. The aim of this community iftar is to spread the message of love and brotherhood in this," said Puthyidam.

T. S Gopinanthan Nair, secretary of Nair Service Society, a Hindu outfit, termed the iftar as a good example of communal harmony.

"We want to spread the message of love and unity in this place, Athirampuzha is a classic example of communal harmony," Nair added.
