Breaking all religious boundaries and in a heartfelt gesture, a Muslim man came forward to perform the last funeral rites of a Hindu man at Mukalmua in Nalbari.
This utterly humane and heartening gesture by the Muslim man took place in Kandhabri village on Monday. Amzad Husain along with other men from his community took the responsibility to perform the last rites of a Hindu man, who was also a resident of the same village.
The Hindu person whose last rites were performed by the Muslim men has been identified as Sanjay Thakur, who has been suffering from a serious illness for a long period of time.
Rising above the religious beliefs and faith, the initiative of the Muslim men to help Thakur’s poverty-stricken family was appreciated by the villagers.
With the help of two Hindu youths along with the members from Thakur’s family, the Muslim men completed the cremation procedures as per Hindu rituals.
