Noble gesture of two Muslim farmers-Asghar Khan and Hakim Ali- wins the hearts of people in the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan; they have donated their land for the construction of a government hospital. The state government has sanctioned Rs 3 crore for building the hospital at Beswa village, near Fatehpur, in the next nine months

The land measuring 8 bighas is situated in the prime location of the area, the hospital to be constructed is said to be have a minor operation theatre and a labour room in addition to regular treatment facilities. It would cater to the needs of people from half-a-dozen nearby villages

One of the brothers Asghar Khan, 68, said to media that he was moved by the difficulties of people in the rural belt to access the medical facilities during emergencies. “For me, this was a call of conscience.”

The MLA of the area said “At a time when people are not willing to part with an inch of their land, you have set new standards with the pious intention…I salute your spirit.”
