Images of India: Hindus in UP to observe Ramadan fast…

At a time when controversy over performing yoga is on, a group of Hindus in Uttar Pradesh’s Mahoba district have decided to observe Roza (fast) with their Muslim neighbours during the holy month of Ramadan to spread the message of religious harmony and to also boost a campaign for setting up of an All India Institute of Medical Services (AIIMS) MS in Mahoba. Currently, patients admitted to primary health centres are referred to Kanpur, Lucknow, Agra and to districts of neighbouring Madhya Pradesh. Setting up AIIMS will help the entire region spread over seven districts in UP and five of MP. The Prime Minister’s Office has sought details of the campaign.
