Dubai Gurdwara to hold daily iftar during Ramzan

Dubai: In a heart-warming gesture, the UAE’s only Sikh Gurdwara in Dubai, will host iftar for workers throughout the holy month of Ramzan, offering vegetarian meals, according to a media report. The Gurdwara in Jebel Ali, which has been hosting an interfaith iftar during every Ramzan in the past six years, will offer iftar meals to workers in the area everyday during this year’s Ramadan, Surender Singh Kandhari, the chairman of the Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara, said on Sunday during Baisakhi festival celebration.

“There are a lot of Muslim workers here. There are not many places from where they can break fast. We will invite these workers to have iftar from our gurdwara,” Kandhari was quoted as saying by the Gulf News. He said the free vegetarian meal (langar) offered to every visitor in the gurdwara will be given to those visiting to break the fast also. “We will add dates, fruits, rose milk, buttermilk and some Indian snacks like pakora, samosa also for them. We expect to host 100 to 200 people every day during Ramzan,” said Kandhari.
