Muslim man performs last rites of Hindu friend

Bhopal, Sep 22 (IANS) Rising above religious boundaries, a Mulsim man has performed last rites of his Hindu friend Santosh Singh Thakur in Madhya Pradesh’s Baitul district.

After arranging all the necessary items required for the last rites, Abdul Razzak cremated Santosh’s body in accordance with the Hindu rituals.

Santosh collapsed in a hospital after prolonged illness on September 20.

The labourer and his wife Chhayabai were childless and they also had no relatives around. So, Razzaq, his friend, stepped forward to conduct the rituals.

Razzaq, who plies an auto-rickshaw, said his friendship was not based on a religious plank and that ” I performed my duties as a friend”.
