A Gurudwara in Joshimath, Uttarakhand, helped Muslim community members as they were unable to offer namaz at Gandhi Maidan due to heavy rains.

"It was raining heavily and to spare our Muslim brethren the inconvenience of offering namaz in the open we offered to them the precincts of our Gurudwara in Joshimath for the purpose," Hemkund Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee chief Sardar Seva Singh told PTI. The HGPC chief said they have offered their space for offering namaz to the Muslim brethren under similar circumstances in the past as well.
