PETALING JAYA: In celebration of a new Malaysia, Karangkraf Media Group is opening its office doors to Muslims and non-Muslims alike for a unique three-day breaking fast event held for the first time ever.

"For the past years, we Malaysians have been fighting over political issues, it is high time to move on so we are organising a solidarity of Ummah (community) and Malaysians," Karangkraf group managing director Datuk Hussamuddin Yaacub said.

From June 1 (Friday) to June 3 (Sunday), Karangkraf will provide food for up to 23,000 people during its Majlis Iftar Karangkraf/Sinar Harian to be held at Dataran Karangkraf in Shah Alam.

The breaking of fast will be held picnic-style where packets of food and drinks will be provided to guests.

Hussamuddin said the event is a recreation of the Ramadan festivities in Madinah where all the roads towards the mosque will be closed during the evening and the mosque will lay out food for the public to feast together.

He said the picnic-style event is to encourage people to sit, eat and chit-chat together in the spirit of muhibbah.

In the spirit of giving, Hussamuddin also encourage guests to bring their own food and for food and beverage companies to contribute to the feast.

Hussamuddin said everybody is welcome to the event, regardless of race or religion.

"We want non-Muslims to join us as a show of unity, so we can celebrate how Muslims and non-Muslims live together harmoniously in Malaysia," he said.

During the event, Muslim guests can also pray at the mosque located in Dataran Karangkraf.
