Bihar: Man breaks Ramzan fast to save Hindu boy’s life
The holy month of Ramzan is a time for fasting for believers. Muslims around the world adhere strictly to the rules, which includes no food or even a drop of water from sunrise to sunset.
However, this man broke the rules - but for a noble cause!
As reported by ANI, a Muslim man from Darbhanga district in Bihar, Mohammad Ashfaq, broke his roza (fast observed during Ramzan) on Monday to donate blood to a two-day-old Hindu boy of Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) jawan Ramesh Kumar Singh.
The man, Mohammad Ashfaq, recently came across a Facebook post, where the infant's family had posted a message urging users to donate blood for the child.
Speaking to ANI, Mohammad Ashfaq who broke his 'roza' said, 'I thought saving a life is more important, knowing that she is daughter of a security personnel motivated me more.'
On Friday, the wife of Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) soldier Ramesh Kumar Singh, gave birth to a boy at a private nursing home in Darbhanga. After this, the condition of the child started to get worse day by day. The doctors, on checking the infant's condition said that they would require O negative blood to save him.
The grandparents of the infant later said that Ashfaq did not feel perturbed in donating his blood to others despite being a Muslim. They added that he chose humanity over his religious duty and thanked him for saving the life of their granddaughter.
