Netizens from different communities lauded the gesture of UK-based philanthropic group
NEW DELHI — International Sikh NGO Khalsa Aid is earning praise for a touching gesture of distributing the copies of Holy Quran as a gift to Muslims living in a refugee camp in Iraq in Ramadan, the month of revelation of the holy book.
The UK-based group made a gift of five copies of the holy Quran and gifted it to a camp manager in Mosul. They also distributed prayer mats to refugees.
Members of the group were initially distributing food packets for Iftar. However, when the camp’s manager asked if they could arrange for the Quran, the group took it as a welcome opportunity to fulfill the requirement and arranged for the same.
The Khalsa Aid, on its Ywitter handle, shared a video of the moment when they distributed copies of the holy Quran which is going viral;
