A teenage boy from Dehradun has recently written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make it mandatory for all religious trusts, irrespective of which religion they follow, to donate 80 per cent of ‘God’s wealth’ to the fight against COVID-19.
“I am sure god would be happy to bless us if this money saves god’s children. We all will have more faith in humanity,” 15-year-old class X student Abhinav wrote in his letter to the Prime Minister.
Abhinav’s parents work in healthcare.
Abhinav has been following the coronavirus pandemic closely ever since it erupted in China.
“With god’s grace my Mom and Dad comes from a medical background and are going to hospital every day so they share stories and situation related to COVID-19,” he says.
“Our Prime Minister has suggested that only social distancing can save us at this time. So, I am hoping this lockdown may partially be extended but there should be better arrangements so that nobody suffers,” he adds.
Abhinav got the email ID and mailed the letter to Prime Minister Modi with his idea.
The world is now struggling with the coronavirus pandemic and India is now under a 21-day lockdown to slow down the spread of Covid-19 by enforcing social distancing.
But these lockdown measures are wreaking havoc on India which is still a developing nation and the world’s second most populated.
Millions of migrant workers, beggars, homeless and daily wage workers have been left without jobs overnight.
