By Justice Markandey Katju
Since the last 25-30 years I have observed 1-day roza in the Holy month of Ramzan ( usually on the last Friday, called Alvida ), out of respect and to show solidarity with my Muslim brothers and sisters, and each year I appeal to non-Muslims all over the world to do the same.
This year the last Friday in India is on 21st April. The sehri time in Delhi ( different localities have different times ), as I was informed by some Muslim friends here, is 4.20 a.m. so I have to remain without food or water after that till the time of iftaar, which is at 6.40 p.m.
I appeal to all non-Muslims all over the world to do the same.
This does not mean you have to give up your religion. It is just a symbolic act, to show our solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters.
When I was in California I observed 1 day roza during Ramzan. Here is a pic of the iftaar at the residence of my friend Shaista Ali. She is with me in this pic. On my other side is my friend Santosh Addagulla.
