Give Iftar and Sahur this Ramadan

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Whoever gives food to a fasting person with which to break his fast will have a reward equal to his, without it detracting in the slightest from the reward of the fasting person” Al-Tirmidhi

Every country has its own set of internal issues, but the Pandora’s box in my beloved nation of India is well and truly open.

Our caste system has long treated individuals in a condescending manner that they don’t deserve. The unforgiving Hindu caste system has, for decades, viewed  “Dalits” to be the lowest class of citizen.

The latest class-related atrocity has sent my entire nation into shock – a 19-year-old Dalit girl was reportedly sexually assaulted in a field and tormented by multiple men of the dominant landowning “Thakur” caste.

The victim was allegedly strangled, suffered a cervical spine injury, her tongue gashed, and raped in the Hathras locale of the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP).
