Buddhist Monks Feed Poor Muslims During Ramadan

Now here’s a story you may have missed…………

While ISIS is calling for terrorist attacks to be carried out during Ramadan Dharmarajika, a Buddhist monastery in Bangladesh, is serving food to hundreds of poor Muslims during the holy month which this year runs from the 18th of June and ends on the evening of the 17th of July.

During Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim year, strict fasting is observed in daylight hours; Muslims break their fast at sunset, with a meal known as Iftar and this is what the Monks have been providing.

The monastery was established in 1949 and is home to more than 700 orphans who study at a free school it runs.
