An Iftar party at a Hindu temple might seem like an outlandish idea in the backdrop of communal riots, but on Monday evening Krishnapura, a small township 18km away from Mangalore, set an example for the rest of the state.

Administrators of Baikampadi Sri Sarala Dhoomavathi Daivasthana in Krishnapura and the youth wing of Jama’at e-Islami Hind came together to organise an unusual spread of brotherhood and peace.
