Lucknow: In a rare gesture of religious harmony, a group of Hindus has decided to observe Roza with their Muslim neighbours during the holy month of Ramzan starting on Friday.
We have decided to observe fast with our Muslim brothers from tomorrow at Udal Chowk crossing in Mahoba. We will be sitting in a group of about 60 persons including at least 25 Hindus and will attend ‘Sehri’ and ‘Iftar, said Tara Patkar, Coordinator of Bundeli Samaj.
Mr Patkar said that the move would serve dual purpose: On one hand it will spread the message of religious harmony and on the other it will boost their campaign for setting up of AIIMS in Mahoba.
He added, “We want policy makers to acknowledge our unity and take a positive decision for setting up of AIIMS in the district as poor health services in this area affect all, irrespective of caste and creed.”
