Recently a heartmelting news came that a group of Muslim men in Varanasi came forward to organise a funeral for a 19-year-old Hindu girl, who died of Malaria.
According to an IANS report, the incident took place in the city’s Harhua Deeh area. The girl, Soni was fighting Malaria and died on Sunday night.
Horilal Vishwakarma ,the girl’s father,was paralysed a few years ago and her mother is a heart patient. Soni’s brother is the only earning member in the family.
When Soni died, the Muslim men living in the neighbourhood came to Horilal’s house and said that he should not worry about the cremation.
The men, some of them wearing their skull caps, made arrangements and then carried the body on their shoulders to the Manikarnika Ghat for cremation and even chanted “Ram naam satya hai”, along the way.
Shakeel, one of the men who helped in the cremation, said: “Yehi satya hai (This is the truth). This is the finality of life but we continue to fight among ourselves on petty issues.”
The harsh and bitter truth of life is that all have to die one day .Also its useless to fight on such issues like religion, which is the bread and butter of the politicians and nothing else.
