Goa (Panaji): With Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar being treated at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi, a group of Maulanas from across the State Thursday performed “Quaran Khawani” for his quick recovery at Bharatiya Janata Party’s Headquarters in Panaji.
Parrikar, 62, has been admitted at AIIMS Delhi for treatment of his pancreatic ailment.
“We have invited ten maulanas from different parts of Goa to BJP State Headquarters where they recited Quaran Khawani for one hour and ‘dua’ (pleading) for half an hour invoking good grace of Allah for recovery of Parrikar,” Sheikh Jinah, President, BJP’s State Minority Morcha said.
He said that muslim community is thankful to Parrikar for helping them in various ways right from aiding the educational institutions to providing help to construct Haj House.
