Ever since the lockdown was declared in the wake of rapidly spreading Covid-19, praise has been pouring in from all quarters to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Seva Bharati as the Swayamsevaks have been engaged in service. Since the day first, the Swayamsevaks have been rendering yeoman service to society, from helping Corona Warriors and reaching out to people for testing.
A recent report from Maharashtra that has gone viral on social media is an eye-opener for many in the time of hate and fear-mongering in the name of the CAA 2019 and political difference. An RSS Swayamsevak helped a pregnant Muslim woman deliver her baby in an ambulance, setting a new example of humanitarian service for the nation.
Ishrat Mohammad, a pregnant woman was on her way to Uttar Pradesh from Gujarat. with her husband Noor Mohammad, a native of Gauriganj, Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, has been working as a weaver in Surat, Gujarat. The husband and wife, along with their 3-year-old son Mohammad Numan, were stranded in Gujarat after the announcement of the lockdown. As the lockdown continued, the couple decided to make their way to their home village on foot.
On May 7, in the morning, the couple reached Jalgaon via the highway. They had to stop midway as Ishrat was unable to bear her labour pain. When the matter came to the notice of some local people, they called up a Swayamsevak of nearby ‘RSS Sevalaya’ as he had helped people in several such incidents. Kavi Kasar, a Sangh Swayamsevak and the nearest RSS’ ‘Sevalaya’ have been a refuge for several migrant workers during the lockdown. He immediately ventured out to reach the spot with necessary food items in an ambulance. By that time, Ishrat nearly fell unconscious and started bleeding.
Since no one was available to offer medical aid, Kasar helped the woman deliver the baby in the ambulance. After the safe delivery, he took the mother and baby to the hospital run by Dr Vilas Bhole, who is the Sanghchalak of Jalgaon). After first aid and other medications, Ishrat and her newborn baby were taken to Godavari Hospital and admitted there.
Overwhelmed by his kind gesture, the couple thanked Kavi Kasar, saying ‘Aap Toh Khuda Ho!’. Congratulating Kavi Kasar, the doctors said that if he did not take the right decision at the right time, things would have been complicated and the lives of the mother kid would have been at greater risk.
