Hindu prisoners wake up in the middle of the night and prepare sehri, iftari and food for the Muslim prisoners


Bengali Hunt Desk: In Bhopal Central Jail, the Hindu prisoners set an example of sympathy towards the Muslim prisoners. During the holy month of Ramadan, 150 Hindu prisoners in the district got up in the middle of the night to make sehri for the Muslim prisoners. Not only that, iftar food was also prepared by Hindu prisoners. There are about 3,000 prisoners in Bhopal Central Jail. Of the total prisoners, 500 are Muslims. These Muslim prisoners are fasting in the month of Ramadan.

Prior to the lockdown, outside agencies other than the prison administration provided Iftar and meals. But that is not happening because of the lockdown. And in this situation, the prison administration is taking good care of the prisoners. 150 Hindu prisoners got up at 3 pm and prepared food for the Muslim prisoners.

Along with this, Iftar is also organized by these Hindu prisoners in the afternoon. Muslim prisoners are given watermelon, seasonal lemon, dates and milk during Iftar. Social distance is also maintained while cooking and praying. The Muslim prisoners were given rice, pulses, vegetables and bread.

All the prisoners in the jail can perform prayers while maintaining social distance except the Simi prisoners. Prison Superintendent Dinesh Nargabe said everything was done to ensure that Muslim prisoners did not face any problems during Ramadan. At the same time, talking to the Muslim prisoners in the jail provided them with facilities for their benefit.

There are 29 SIMI militants detained in the Central Jail. They are also fasting. The prison administration has made arrangements for them. Prison officials said all facilities were provided at the Simi prisoner's barracks for security reasons. They are given the same benefits as the rest of the Muslim prisoners. There is no discrimination in prisons. All the materials are given to the prisoners as per the jail manual. During the month of Ramadan, all Muslim prisoners are taken care of.
