The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association held an interfaith Eid Festival dinner to build bridges in the community.
Spokeswoman Khola Usman said the aim of the event was to promote a greater understanding of the Islamic Eid-ul-Fitr celebration, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
Eid was celebrated at the beginning of August.
“Ramadan prepares a Muslim to sacrifice his own desires not only for self-purification but also for the betterment of society at large,” she said.
Guests included the Interfaith Network from Frankston, Casey and Dandenong and police.
“We wanted to entertain guests by serving traditional food such as korma, biryani, roast and mithai (a traditional dessert),” she said.
“We want to remove any misconceptions between each other and build a better society.”
