RSS to hold Iftar party, invites ambassadors from over 140 countries

New Delhi: The Rashtirya Swayamsevak Sangh is set to host an international iftar party on 2 July at Parliament House Annexe, reported India Today.

RSS patronised Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) organised the iftar. Indresh Kumar, Sangh pracharak (volunteer) for MRM, commented on this and said:

“The last Prophet (PBUH) had himself said that in times of internal and external disturbances, the spiritual waves of peace and calmness come from the east, from India. He said this nearly 1,400 years ago. India is a ray of hope and peace for the Muslim world. I hope this is the line of approach of all the speakers at the party.”

Kumar, however pointed out that the event was being organised by Muslims and for the Muslim community. The Sangh does not organise iftar and this is not being done by the RSS either.”

Mohammad Afzal, MRM Chief also commented on the iftar to Mail Today and mentioned the guest list.

“This time we have invited ambassadors from over 140 countries, including Pakistan,” said Mohammad Afzal, MRM Chief.

IAS and IPS officers, vice-chancellors, along with the Vice President of India were also included int the guests list.

“We will be going and meeting them in person to extend our invitation. Not just Muslim, but non-Muslim allies and friends of India have been invited,” added Afzal.
