KARACHI, Pakistan: The tradition began 76 years ago.

Since then, every year during the holy month of Ramadan, hundreds gather at sunset for a grand communal iftar dinner at the New Memon Mosque in Karachi. The meal is arranged by a group of volunteers for almost 3,000 people daily.

Riaz Ali Qadri, who is part of the management team that arranges the iftar, told Arab News the feast was attended by local shopkeepers, customers, laborers and other passers-by.
