Man Breaks Roza to donate Plasma and save lives of Two Hindu Women

Aqeel has shown that the service of humanity is bigger than worshiping God.


As India is deep within the throes of the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic, the political circus and obliging Godi media still is doing Hindu Muslim and catering to the ruling dispensation. Despite our cynicism, few instances happen that restore the faith in humanity.

Aqueel Mansoori, a 32-year-old man from Udaipur broke his first Roza of the holy month of Ramzan to donate plasma to two Hindu women that saved their lives. Mansoori recovered from COVID-19 in September last year.

Through social media networks and blood donation groups, Mansoori learned about the two women who were infected with COVID-19 and were on oxygen support and needed A+ plasma urgently.

The doctors at the Pacific Hospital at Udaipur were trying to arrange for plasma but in vain. It was at this time that Rakt Yuva Vahini( Youth Blood Donation group) got the news and they contacted Aqeel as he has earlier donated 17 times and he had the matching blood group.

“Immediately after seeing these messages, I rushed to the hospital and volunteered for my plasma donation. Since I had done it in past after getting recovered from Covid-19 in September, I knew the plasma donation procedure,” Mansoori was quoted by TOI as saying.

It was at the hospital that Mansoori had to break his fast. “While the doctors asked me to get ready, they had also asked me to have something. That’s why I had to break my roza and had something from the hospital itself and donated my blood,” he said. While Mansoori received praise, he believes he did nothing extraordinary.

Talking to the media, Aqeel said doctors refused to take plasma on empty stomach. So I broke my Roza and after eating food donated plasma.

“Maine apna insaani farz nibhaya, mujhe koi geela nahin (It was my responsibility as a human and I have no regrets),” Mansoori said, adding that he is praying for the recovery of the two women. According to Mansoori, he has donated blood more than 17 times in his life. Since his recovery from COVID-19, he has donated his plasma thrice.

Aqeel has shown that the service of humanity is bigger than worshiping God.
