It’s the holy month of Ramadan and Muslims all over the world are observing fast, offering prayers and seeking forgiveness. Ramzan is also the time to show love and promote harmony and it’s not just restricted to the community. As we live in a world where co-existence of religions and communal harmony seem to be declining, a heart-warming post is going viral in Pakistan, which shows members of Sikh community distributing refreshments to fasting people.

A Facebook user shared two pictures of a Sikh man from Peshawar distributing packets of what seems to be rooh afza doodh with a caption, “This is the true face of my Pakistan”. The photos show Sikh men with turban handing out the alms. Fasting in this hot and humid weather is extremely difficult and nothing better than offering refreshing drinks, right?

Though the identity of the Sikh man is not clear and neither why he was offering the drinks, but certainly people are happy and claimed that it gives a good vibe. The pictures were shared on multiple food groups in Pakistan and have now gone viral with people praising the man for his kind gesture, bringing focus to communal harmony in the neighbouring nation.

Muslims observe fast from dawn to dusk and are expected to be involved actively in giving alms, good deeds and charity during Ramzan. And even in India, other religious communities come together and organise Iftar feast for the fasting people. Only recently, the Lekshmi Narasimha Murthy Vishnu Temple in Malappuram, Kerala hosted close to 400 Muslims as well as 100 persons from other communities for an Iftar feast.

        What a comical state of affairs...Media is trying to project a sectarian religious theocratic state which has openly cuted minorities and reduced them to irrelevance and insignificance as a 'TOLERANT STATE' and the same media tries to project a tolerant state, i.e., India as some sort of evil fascist incarnate.

            Same musselman will kil sikhs after ramzan or even before that. Then media news will be in some small corner or not publish at all. Every Sikh shopkeeper in USA is under fear when they will b shot dead. Just 1 week before priya named Sikh girl, 16 yr old was from ruefully taken by Muslims, converted to Islam and married off to old Muslim guy. This news makes no sense and has no meaning. Non Muslims must not get carried away by media pro jihadi propa a.

                People trying to impress other religions as if things are oing to change for the better. All this useless activity should be stopped and people should work and increase their economic status for a better life on this planet for themselves and their children. Having all this religious activity will be of no use to anyone.
