Humanity is in danger as it passes through tough times due to this pandemic.
The Indian greeting system Namaste and the Muslim system of doing Ablution have become essential things for humanity. Making the practice of Namaste and Ablution a routine protects people from the COVID-19. These practices are emulated in the entire world to stop the infection.
You can see all over the media that great leaders of the world, from nations such as the USA, UK, France, and Israel, are practicing Namaste to greet each other, and of course, they are washing hands often like Ablution.
In the Hindu-Muslim brotherhood, we do Namaste no matter who and where we are. Ablution is done five times a day before offering a prayer. It entails not only washing the hands but also cleaning the nose, gurgling and washing other body parts such as the face, backside of the ears, neck, and finally the feet.
We learn that the Hindu-Muslim daily routine is so hygienic and such a good combination for everyday life, even before the virus.
This is a clear-cut message to everyone that the Indian Namaste and Muslim Ablution is the only secure way that the world can use to keep safe from any virus, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
