Renewing the tradition of communal harmony and peace, the mahants and sadhus of Ayodhya will throw an iftar party on Gandhi Jayanti (October 2) in Ayodhya.

The iftar will be attended by Shia cleric and religious leader Maulana Kalbe Sadiq, Christian priest Anand John, Sikh leader Gurcharan Jeet Singh and Sandip Pandey, Magsaysay award winner and convenor of National Alliance for People's Movement among others, mahant Jugal Kishore Sharan Shastri, the organiser of the iftar said.

"We have invited all the prominent Muslims of Ayodhya-Faizabad and mahants and priests of all the temples of Ayodhya besides others," he said.

Shastri said except those sadhus who are governed by the VHP, the majority of sadhus are with us in our move to strengthen the traditional values of communal harmony in Ayodhya.
