New Delhi: Danish Siddiqui and Saddam Qurashi have been performing the last rites of Hindu Covid victims at cremation grounds in Bhopal since the beginning of the second wave of the pandemic.
They have been offering a helping hand while fasting in this holy month of Ramadan. According to an India Times report, they have cremated 60 Covid victims whose families missed the funerals in the fear of getting infected. Some families couldn’t perform the last rites due to rules regarding covid dead bodies and cremation ground.
Despite fasting during the time of Ramadan, both of them regularly visit hospitals and ferry dead bodies to the cremation ground.
This comes after BJP leaders objected to the presence of a Muslim worker at a cremation ground in Vadodara city of Gujarat.
