Hindu Shrine prepares sehri, iftari for the quarantined Muslims amid Ramadan

Epitomising communal harmony, the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board was working overnight to provide sehri and Iftari to around 500 Muslims quarantined at Aashirwad Bhawan in Katra. Sehri is a small meal taken before the sunrise while iftari is taken after the fast ends at the sunset during the holy month of Ramadan. The shrine even did special arrangements for the Muslims on the occasion of Eid that celebrates the end of holy month of fasting with large meals and other festivities. The migrant labourers have come to Jammu and Kashmir from different parts of the country in special Shramik trains and buses to Udhampur town which is about 40 kms from Katra, where they are staying. The shrine board has spent around Rs 80 lakh on providing food to the needy since March 20 in various quarantine centres at Katra. It has also spent around Rs 1.5 crore in aiding the Covid-19 response. The Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine is one of the most revered Hindu shrines and is also the second richest after Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams in India. All facilities of the shrine board in Katra are well maintained and pilgrims from across the country prefer them over hotels for their cleanliness, hygienic food, comfortable bedding and hospitable staff.
