New Delhi, Apr 26: As the Covid-19 cases are on rise and patients are not getting proper Oxygen supply, minorities in different parts of India have become active to combat the present Covid-19 crisis.
While highlighting the contribution of Muslims in the ongoing pandemic, Zafarul-Islam Khan, former Chairman, Delhi Minorities Commission tweeted a series of reports along with photographs wherein Muslims can be seen helping people.
“Muslims in MP (Madhya Pradesh) offer Eidgah to set up Covid Care Centre. Muslims in Mandideep, MP, have offered 5-acre Eidgah and one more premises to set up Covid Care Centre. Eidgah can accommodate 100-beds and another place near a graveyard can be used for 60 beds,” Zafarul-Islam Khan as per news agency Kashmir News Trust tweeted along with a news report and photograph.

Islam has also uploaded a photograph of another well-to-do Muslim saying “Nagpur’s Pyare Khan spends one crore to donate 32 tons of oxygen for Covid victims.
