Dear Editor, It was good to know that during the lockdown lot of places have witnessed love and unity between Hindus and Muslims. As on Wednesday May 13 members of the Muslim community from Mumbai helped perform the last rites of their 72-year-old Hindu neighbour in Sewri area after the deceased’s relatives could not reach for his funeral due to the lockdown. After death of Pandurang Ubale, who was paralysed since the last few months this noble gesture was seen and one Muslim lady Imrana Saifi has been seen sanitising a temple. Besides, it was reported that a Hindu family arranged iftar meals for Kashmiri Muslims stuck in West Bengal’s Bardhaman owing to the lockdown. The Muslim members were also given space to offer Namaz at the Hindu residence. It is the sign of unity and communal harmony among Indians. Hope such scenario continues for a long time, and I request all the citizens to come together to root out the contagious Covid-19 from the country. A.L Nadwi, Bengaluru Karnataka.
