Hindu sisters donate land to Eidgah

New Delhi: Fulfilling their late father’s last wish, two Hindu sisters donated four bighas worth over ₹ 1.5 crore to an Eidgah at Kashipur in Uttarakhand – a gesture that touched Muslims so much that they offered prayers for the dead man on Eid.

Brajnandan Prasad Rastogi, who died 20 years ago, had confided to his close relatives that he wished to donate four bighas of his agricultural land to an Eidgah for its expansion.

His two daughters Saroj and Anita, who live in Delhi and Meerut, came to know about their father’s last wish through relatives recently.

“The two sisters are a living example of communal unity. The Eidgah Committee expresses its gratitude to them for the kind gesture. The two sisters will soon be felicitated for what they have done,” Hasin Khan of the Eidgah committee said.
