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.
