Khalida had saved Rs. 11 lac (5 lac INR) for her Hajj pilgrimage this year. Since there is no clear view of if Hajj will be carried out this year, Khalida decided to spend her savings for God.

COVID-19 keeping the world in a complete Lockdown and Poor People are facing the fear of hunger everywhere.

“Relief for others is the best deed, Says Khalida Begum.” With Kashmir in a complete lockdown since the last 234 days, the inception of COVID-19 has marred the Indian state with further problems. India has been in a turmoil politically and socially ever since the Kashmir curfew. On the contrary, Muslims like Khalida Begum keep reminding Modi’s Hindutva agenda that they will be fought with love.


Praising her act of kindness, an Indian (Hindu) citizen, with Twitter handler ‘RockyPanditAJk’ tweeted “Service to mankind is service to God. Khalida Begum G mother of Sh Farooq Khan H’Advisor to H’LG of Jammu And Kashmir,who had planned the holy Haj pilgrimage this year on her own expenses has cancelled the same and has donated Rs.5.0 lac to Sewa Bharti Jammu.”

Khalida Begum has donated her Hajj saving money to a welfare organization named ‘Sewa Bharati’ which is linked with RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh) which is a far-right organization. The RSS has been working to strip the rights of Kashmiri people (Specifically Muslims) at large scale.
