    To Set An Example Of Brotherhood, Dunkin' Donuts In Pakistan Is Offering Free Meals To Indians

    This is what hospitality looks like.

    On 16 October, a Pakistani family arrived in Mumbai to pray at the Haji Ali dargah, but had to spend the night on the street after being denied accommodation by multiple hotels.

    According to reports, the hotels didn't want to go through the hassle of filing the mandatory forms required to accommodate foreign guests.

    Iqbal Latif, owner of 26 Dunkin' Donuts franchises across Pakistan, read the news and decided to extend a gesture to address the strained relations between the two countries.

    On October 17, his Dunkin' Donut outlets in Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar offered all Indian visitors a free meal and a doughnut to "promote harmony, peace, understanding and love between two neighbours".

    According to a Twitter user, over 2,000 free meals have already been served to visiting Indians since the offer went up.

    “It’s not a big deal, but an effort to invoke the teachings of Gandhi Ji who preached love and co-existence all his life,” Latif told Dawn in an interview.
