Dacca (Agenzia Fides) – “Christians have shown their great hearts. We are impressed by their love, compassion, and hospitality. The Iftar meal, prepared by them for the end of Ramadan, has strengthened religious harmony, tolerance, and taught us respect for other faiths.”

Thus were the words to Agenzia Fides by Amir Hossian, a faithful Muslim who took part in the Iftar event, at the end of the holy month of Ramadan, organized by the Christian Youth Association of Dacca (YMCA). Iftar is the meal Muslims have after sunset during Ramadan. About 400 of the poorest Muslims took part in the program: ecological workers, sewer cleaners, day laborers.

Amir Hossian, a laborer in the Mirpur area, said he saw faithful from different communities live brotherly relationships and celebrate religious holidays with members of other communities.
