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.

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