The new year has begun and the saga of religious harmony in the country continues. It was reported by a local citizen-managed social media Sikh group on Facebook that an old man passed away in Saidwani Khag village in Budgam, Kashmir. Reportedly, the day the man died, his body was guarded by and taken care of by the Muslims in the village until other members of the Sikh community and other family members could arrive there. Only two Sikh persons were living in the village and hence in a humanitarian gesture, the Muslim villagers took care of the deceased person until other Sikh members arrived and also took part in the last rites and cremation as per Sikh rituals.
