On Thursday, Kashmir witnessed a biggest event with over 1200 people breaking their fast together.

The event was organized by event management group, Loud Beetle, which had last year hosted sub-continent’s longest Iftaar on the banks of world famous Dal Lake. There was no guest list for Srinagar’s Iftaar – the invitation was open to all at Polo ground here.

Iftaar is the sunset meal at which Muslims break their fast during the month of Ramzan. Traditionally, the meal is supposed to be taken in a congregation. It is belief in Islam that serving food to people during Iftaar brings pleasure to Allah.Loud Beetle Iftaar

“In the tension fraught Kashmir valley, social gatherings such as this can help in bringing a new environment for the people to get-together and celebrate joyous occasions,” the organizers said.

“Holy month of Ramzan is known for the festivals. So we are trying to send across a message of brotherhood by hosting Kashmir’s largest Iftaar,” said Ahmer Khan, organizer of the function.

A local, Irfan Aziz said that such events send a message of brotherhood in the society.

Last year, Alexandria in Egypt broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest Iftaar spread by hosting 7,000 people.

Last year Loudbeetle.in hosted sub-continent’s longest Iftaar in Kashmir – along the banks of the scenic Dal Lake where more than 3,500 people formed a 5,000-feet-long chain over dastarkhans (dinning cloth) to break their fast.
