As reported by Times of India, a Muslim family in Sultanpur has printed pictures of Lord Ram and Goddess Sita on a wedding card, setting an example of communal harmony and respect for another religion.
Mohammad Saleem, a resident of Baghsarai village in Sultanpur, sent cards of his daughter Jahana Bano’s wedding to his guests from Hindu community with pictures of Ram and Sita, standing behind a ceremonial fire. It also has other traditional Hindu ‘pooja’ items such as Kalash, lamps, banana leaves and even a‘ pooja thali’ replete with coconut, flowers and fruits.
“I wish to bridge the gap between the religious beliefs of Hindus and Muslims. It is a goodwill gesture for my Hindu brothers who also respect our religion with their heart. If we respect their religious personalities, they will definitely show respect for the Muslim community,” said Saleem.
