A Buddhist monastery in Bangladesh is serving food to hundreds of poor Muslims during Ramadan.Dharmarajika, in the capital Dhaka, has become a hit on social media since it started distributing daily food packs for Muslims who break their fast during the Islamic month at sunset, known as Iftar. " We were taught that serving humanity is the ultimate religion. We are feeding the poor Muslims who cannot afford to buy proper meals to break their fast, " Suddhananda Mahathero, the head monk of the monastery, told AFP. When AFP visited on Monday evening, more than 300 Muslims were waiting at the gate of the monastery in Dhaka ` s Basabo neighbourhood to receive some Iftar delicacies.Recommended:Turkish Muslims Celebrate Ramadan on Street "I can eat some good food served with love and care," said 70-year-old Amena Khatun, who added that she had walked several kilometres to get there. As a young monk distributed tickets to hungry Muslims, police were on hand to ensure the process remained orderly. "This is such a wonderful example of religious harmony: showing respect and affection to the fasting neighbours without thinking of the difference of religions," said policeman Asad Uzzaman. Muslims make up around 90 percent of Bangladesh`s 160 million population, with a tiny community of Buddhists residing mostly in the country`s southeastern districts bordering Myanmar. Many Muslims took to social media to thank the Dharmarajika monastery for their food distribution, posting photos on Facebook of the yellow-clad monks handing out supplies. Others praised the monks on Twitter. "I really appreciate the initiative and thank them," Nur Hossain, a banker, told AFP. The monastery was established in 1949 and is home to more than 700 orphans who study at a free school it runs.
