Bhatkal: Nov 15, 2020 (Bhatkallys News Bureau) Scorching heat has made going out at noon difficult. To counter this heat, chilled water bottles were distributed today by Payam-e-Insaniyat to travelers near Bhatkal Bus Stand and Sunday Market and also to truck and bus drivers on Bhatkal National Highway.
Speaking to news reporters on the occasion, Maulana Samaan Khalifa Nadvi, Head of Payam-e-Insaniyat Bhatkal Forum, said that giving water is a good virtue in Islam. He said “looking at scorching heat in Bhatkal, we decided to provide cold water to the people walking on the highway in the sun so that they could get some relief from the heat”. He termed it as a service to humanity and said that people are happily accepting water from them irrespective of caste and religion.
