Discovery Channel presents one hour programme on Ramzan

MUMBAI: India has more festivals than any other part of the world with its people bonded together by different faiths, customs, religions and its history living in celebrations of colours, lights, music and dance. Eid-ul-fitr is one such festival, celebrated by nearly 180 million Muslims in India and many others around the world at the end of the holy month of Ramadan (or Ramzan).

Celebrating the auspicious month of Ramzan, Discovery Channel will take its viewers on a spiritual journey to discover the essence of this festival. Watch the one-hour special SPIRIT OF INDIA: RAMZAN ON Wednesday, July 6th at 8 pm on Discovery Channel.

Fasting is arguably the most important practice in the month of Ramadan but the story unravels many other dimensions of the festival besides the regular prayers. There are are a number of other socio-religious practices that have to be strictly adhered to during this month, like being patient, doing charity, giving up materialist desires in order to free oneself from the worldly desires and strengthening the bond between man and God.

The programme presenter Danny Sura will take Discovery Channel viewers through the streets of Mumbai abuzz with festivities, will attend an Iftar Party near Jama Masjid at Santa Cruz, and later culminate his spiritual journey at the holy shrine of Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer, Rajasthan.

The programme will also feature the tradition of people hugging and greeting each other and saying EId Mubarak that speaks volumes about the brotherhood that Islam is instilling in its followers and the significance of the Eid Namaaz or the Khutbathde Namaz as an important prayer. The programme also follows the sermons by clerics, delivering messages of peace and goodwill and blessings for the people.

Tune in to Discovery Channel on Wednesday July 6th at 8 PM to witness the congregation of Muslim devotees offering their prayers to almighty, preparation of ancient cuisines and much more on this Eid-ul-Fitr.
