Sikhs sanitise Jama Masjid

New Delhi: Ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr prayer, a number of members of Sikh community, 'United Sikhs' -- a civil rights and humanitarian non-profit organization -- sanitised the Jama Masjid here on Sunday.

'Need of the hour'

Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid, Ahmed Shah Bukhari said this is the need of the hour in the nation that people take care of each other.

"The way people from Sikh community sanitised the Jama Masjid is the beauty of this nation. Amid the fight against the coronavirus, it is very important to help each other. I hope this beauty of the nation is maintained," the Shahi Imam said.

'We don't discriminate'

On the other hand, speaking to IANS, Parminder Singh, one of the members, said, "It is not just Masjid but we are also cleaning Churches and temples."

"We do not discriminate on religious grounds. When we walk with our holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, all the religions and their followers are the same for us", Singh told IANS.

"It is written in our holy book that we are all god's creation. We are also sanitising the temples and churches. We have been working for the past 50-60 days," he added.

Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in India on Monday.

Hindus, Muslims helping each other

Not just in Delhi but amid the fight against coronavirus, the pictures from across the nation have emerged where people were helping each other without any discrimination.

Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine in Jammu has been serving sehri and iftari during the holy month of Ramadan to around 500 Muslims who were quarantined at the Aashirwad Bhawan as it was converted into a quarantine centre.

Recently, a Muslim NGO distributed dates and ration kits in Malegaon. They made it sure that these Ramadan gifts are also given to the Hindu households.
