Sikh shopkeepers ‘earning’ Ramazan blessings
April 15, 2022 08:28 PM
Tirah Valley Sikh shopkeepers have been upholding the tradition of providing fasting Muslims with special relief in Ramazan, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Friday.
Braving all odds, Sikh merchants and shopkeepers go for sale sans profit for the faithful and they have made an addition of dates to the list of non-profit items.
A local merchant said by this act they too earn the blessing of this holy month. Ironically, Muslim merchants went on a money-making spree in every Ramazan.
The authorities make announcements about the Ramazan relief package but the subsidized staff fail to meet quality needs. Local admin forms special teams to lasso profiteers and hoarders but to no avail.
Reportedly, the KP Sikh community keeps alive the old tradition of preparing iftar for Muslims observing the fast.
A volunteer said this is how they find inner peace. A Muslim said the Sikhs community of Peshawar has been doing this every year for a long time.
Sikh children take part in arrangements. This is such an inspiring example of interfaith harmony.
