While religion remains the basis of difference and discrimination, a gurdwara in UAE has ensured that unity stands irrespective of religion. The Gurunanak Darbar Gurdwara hosted a grand iftar where people from over 30 nationalities attended and broke the fast, reported Hindustan Times.
To show the spirit of acceptance, giving and brotherhood, Surender Singh Kandhari, the chairman of the Gurunanak Darbar, said this iftar was supposed to unite people from all over the world and bring them together in the face of adversity.
The iftar featured Arabs, Ethiopians, Mexicans, Americans and Serbians, and they were offered a place for namaz in the gurdwara in Jebal Ali as well. Mitchell Peters, who is from Belgium, said the experience of iftar in a Sikh temple as a Christian made it more special, and applauded the UAE for being a platform for their unison.
This gurdwara is the largest one in the Gulf region and is a very important place for Sikhs. It has been involved in social work for quite a while now.
On normal days, the gurdwara offers free food for visitors and distributes food on weekends as well.
The spirit of Ramazan has brought religions and countries together.
