The group, called as Rajpora Volunteer
Development Committee (RVDC), has been working in the area from the last month
to decontaminate and sanitize religious places among others.

days consistently without any break. Sikh people are our brethren and we are
doing all our volunteer work without considering religious differences,” a

Overlooking their religious
difference, Mohammad Ayoub is one of the many Muslim volunteers who have joined
hands with different relief agencies including the local government authorities
to provide rations, and sanitation products to low-income masses amid the
Coronavirus outbreak that has put the entire region under a crippling lockdown.

The area of Rajpora also saw the group
of 24 volunteers distributing a large quantity of food items, face masks and
hand sanitizers among the 120 underprivileged families while flawlessly
following the norms of social distancing. “We do not gather people on the
streets to distribute ration in order to observe social distancing. We deliver
rations at the doorsteps,” Ayoub says.

RVDC has also been making the local
people aware about social distancing as a tool to combat the pandemic.
“You would find our volunteers at ‘sensitive’ places like hospitals, banks
and other such places where there are chances of people gathering in large
numbers. We have been helping the authorities to enforce social
distancing,” says Muzaffar Jan, another volunteer.

The faith and support these
communities have been showing towards each other restore one’s faith in
humanity and exemplifies Kashmir’s religious harmony as a lesson in the
pandemic times.
