Sikh volunteers of United Sikhs organization sanitize Jama Masjid, set example of communal harmony
As the national capital battles coronavirus, the historic Jama Masjid is closed for congregational prayers. However, the team of Sikh volunteers effectively sanitized the monument to ensure it is safe for the caretakers and visitors.
The volunteers affiliated with United Sikhs organization also met Naib Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid Syed Shaban Bukhari during the visit. The latter thanked the team for the humanitarian gesture and underlined the need for all sections of humanity to unite in the face of this crisis.
“The Sikh community has always displayed exemplary commitment to humanity and we are thankful to the United Sikhs’ team for their initiative. This enormous crisis facing the human race can be fought off only if all communities, nations and people unite and fight it together. In recent weeks, we have seen heart wrenching images of misery in the country as thousands of migrant workers return to their villages. At the same time we have also seen positive stories of different people uniting to help and feed them. We hope that together we will overcome this crisis,” said Syed Shaban Bukhari, Naib Shahi Imam, Jama Masjid, Delhi.
Shaban Bukhari has also advised Muslims across the country to strictly avoid congregational prayers this Eid and pray at homes.
