Usually not expected from our Ministers!

Karnataka Health Minister U.T. Khader Sunday came to the aid of an old couple, involved in an accident, sending them to a hospital in his official car and himself taking an auto to reach his destination.

“The minister was going for ‘namaaz’ prior to the breaking of the Ramadan fast when he saw the old couple hit by an auto rickshaw at Mekri Circle. He immediately got down and asked his driver to take them to K.G. Hospital at Malleshwaram (in western suburbs),” an official told IANS here.

After alerting the hospital to attend to the injured couple, Khader took an auto from the circle to resume his journey to a mosque for the prayer and breaking of fast with supper later. Khader, a devout Muslim hailing from the coastal area of the state, regularly fasts during Ramadan.
