Nina Gopaul from Mauritius says –
An Iftaar with Muslims and non-Muslims. A Sabbath dinner with Jews and non-Jews. Sharing Divali cakes with Hindus and non-Hindus. The commonality? Food obviously but it is not the only one. People of different faiths are also sharing common values. Love, respect, justice and peace are but a few of these shared values. Never has the world looked more like a global village than it is today and never has the need been so great for creating better understanding and respect between followers of different religions. Our survival depends on it.
A few days ago we celebrated Eid ul Fitr with the Muslim community at the college. I couldn’t agree more.
