Srinagar, March 31 (KMS): At a time when Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian regime is hell bent upon dividing Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir on religious lines, in an admirable display of communal harmony, the Muslims, today, helped perform last rites of a Hindu man.
Balbir Singh (55), who was working in the Indian Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), died of cardiac arrest at his home in Karkan area of Kulgam, last evening, reports said.
He was posted at Amritsar city of the Indian state of Punjab but was on leave to attend the death anniversary of his brother.
Balbir’s family is the only Hindu Rajput family living in the village, and today his friends and the neighbours from the Muslim community took it upon themselves to help perform last rites of the deceased. They also shouldered his coffin and arranged wood for the cremation.
“He was one of us. We never thought of him as a Rajput Hindu. We arranged everything needed for the cremation,” said Abdul Jabbar, a local resident.
