Bulandshahar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hurried announcement of a three-week lockdown to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus has got India’s 1.3 billion people reeling with unanticipated circumstances.
In one such incident, several Muslim youths united to cremate and perform the last rites of their Hindu neighbour in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahar bdistrict.
According to a source, 73-year-old Ravi Shankar was a resident of Anand Vihar area, a primarily Muslim neighbourhood, and had been battling with cancer for a long time. On March 28, Ravi Shankar succumbed to his illness.
The Muslim neighbours of the family stepped in and decided to help the family with the last rites when the relatives could not turn up due to the lockdown restrictions.
Reportedly, they took out the ‘Antim-Yatra’ while chanting ‘Ram-Nam Satya Hai’, and also performed the last rites of Ravi Shankar with proper Hindu rituals. The neighbours have also assured Ravi Shankar’s family of all possible help during the lockdown period. (Source: MitaanExpress.com)
