Jaisalmer: In a unique example of communal harmony, one Muslim man has been regularly offering ‘roti’ and “go-seva” to hundreds of cows in pockets of localities of golden city of Jaisalmer for the last 15 years.
Haji Mehrudin of Jaisalmer collects roti from houses and packs in four full bags every day, and has been distributing them to go-shalas or offering directly to stray cows in the city for the last 15 years.
“I go to every mohalla twice in a day for go-seva and offer the cows roti collected from the women who voluntarily provide the left over rotis to me,” 60-year-old Haji told reporters today.
“I feel very satisfied by doing this service to beloved cows that give milk to everyone regardless of caste, creed or religion. This is totally wrong notion that Muslim brothers do not care for cows. We do care and offer roti to it,” he said.
Ranu Singh Rajpurohit, a go-shala convenor here, and a resident Ramkanwar Devra confirmed that the man has been serving cows for the last 14 to 15 years without any self interest in every adverse weather conditions.
