30 ASSAM RIFLES CELEBRATES LAST DAY OF THE HOLY RAMADAN MONTH
30 Assam Rifles of 9 Sector under HQ IGAR (S) organised an IFTAAR Party at Chingmeirong COB on 19 Aug 2012 celebrating the last day of the Holy Ramadan month. Invitees from the varied walk of life joined Muslim brethren in breaking the Ramdhan fast. Commandant 30 Assam Rilfes welcomed the guests on behalf of the unit.
The Iftaar get-together began with a short recital of verses from the Quran by Kazi of Hazir Leikai Masjid, Kairang and offered ‘Maghrib’ prayers. Speaking on the occasion, Commandant said that the idea of purification and austerity behind the fasting ritual is beyond the folds of Islam.
In fact the focus on core values, noble thoughts and good will during the Ramadan month are beyond the religious and the spiritual practices and extended to the idea of universal solidarity and relationship based on peace.
More than 50 people including dignitaries of the Kairang area were present during the occasion.
