Ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr salah, a number of members of Sikh community, 'United Sikhs' — a civil rights and humanitarian non-profit organization — sanitised the Jama Masjid in old Delhi on Sunday.

Speaking to reporters, Parminder Singh, one of the members, said, "It is not just Masjid but we are also cleaning Churches and temples."

"We do not discriminate on religious grounds. When we walk with our holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, all the religions and their followers are the same for us. It is written in our holy book that we are all God's creation. We are also sanitising the temples and churches. We have been working for the past 50-60 days," Singh told reporters.

Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid, Ahmed Shah Bukhari said this is the need of the hour in the nation that people take care of each other.

"The way people from Sikh community sanitised the Jama Masjid is the beauty of this nation. Amid the fight against the coronavirus, it is very important to help each other. I hope this beauty of the nation is maintained," the Shahi Imam said.


Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in India on Monday.

Not just in Delhi but amid the fight against coronavirus, the pictures from across the nation have emerged where people were helping each other without any discrimination.
