Ramadan brings Muslims, Christians together in Bulgaria

Turks and Muslims who form a majority in Bulgaria's Kardzhali and Mestan provinces are enjoying holy Ramadan, which also has brought Muslims and Christians together.

Regional Mufti of Kardzhali Beyhan Mehmed told AA that people who were interested in reciting Qur'an and night prayers throng to mosques.

Fast breaking meals in Kardzhali bring people from every religion together, said Mayor of Mestan Akif Mehmet Akif, adding "We bring Muslims and Christians together and create a beautiful atmosphere serving delicious meals. Muslims and Christians have no problems in the town."

Stanka Miteva, a Bulgarian citizen who attended a fast breaking meal with her Muslim friends, said she had never witnessed any discrimination against Christians.

"We live together in peace. We celebrate our religious festivals together. I have never seen any misdeeds from Muslims," Miteva said.
