Delhi Archbishop hosts iftar in solidarity with Muslims

Delhi Archbishop Anil G Kutto at the Iftar attendees at Bishop House

As the hate campaign against Muslims intensifies across India, the Catholic Church and the Archbishop of Delhi hosted an iftar in solidarity with the community. Delhi Archbishop Anil G Kutto convened an Iftar for the Muslim Brotherhood by bringing together leaders of various faiths and spiritualities at Bishop House Yusuf Sadan.

This is the first time an Iftar has been attended by various religious leaders and Muslims at the Bishop's House in Delhi belonging to the Catholic Church.

After Iftar, the Archbishop arranged for Maghrib prayers at the same spot. Archbishop Anil G Kutto told the media that the Iftar was organized to show solidarity with the Muslim community, the most vulnerable community in the country. The goal is to uphold the ethos of a pluralistic country where different cultures and languages ​​exist. "The more we love, the greater our glory," said the Catholic leader.

He added that the church has always tried to strengthen ties between different religions. The iftar was a very small gesture, but we need to stand with such expressions of unity and diversity. He added that we should not support anything that divides the country and builds walls.

Buddhist monk Dr. Dhammapiya from Tripura, who is also the General Secretary of the International Buddhist Confederation, also graced the iftar with his presence. He said that there are two principles in the world - constructive love and destructive hatred. "We are all dependent on each other. No one can survive alone."

He added that it is important to understand the nature of our existence at a time when several narratives are around to divide humans. 'The principle of hatred divides, degenerates, and destroys. The principle of love and compassion brings people together in harmonious existence."

Sr. Kripa Kumari notes that if one has a good relationship with their God, they cannot have hatred for people around them and can only have love in their hearts. "It is time for us to realise all of us are basically souls and we need to let go of our physical identity. Religions give us disciplines to get close to God. But the actions in our lives are what brings us close to God."

Goswami Sushilmaharaj (National Convener, Sarva Dharma Sansad), Swami Veer Singh Hitkari (All India Ravidasya Dharmasanghatan), Muhammad Saleem (National Vice President of Jamaat-e-Islami), Muhammad Ahmad (Secretary of Jamaat-e-Islami), Dr. AK Merchant of Baháʼí Community (Hussain Bundy Imam of the Brahma Kumari Samaj), and Prof. Akhtarulwasi were among the attendees.
