Iftar parties have lost their solemnity, thanks to the overdose of politics. It has become fashionable for all political parties to organise Iftar and lever it to strengthen their position with the minorities. On Monday, the CM organised an Iftar party. Former minister Shabir Ali kicked up a row by behaving like a gang leader, abusing everybody. Many who received his lashing complained to higher-ups. It subsided only when the CM arrived.
