Man breaks Ramzan fast to donate blood

Sehari is consumed before sunrise by the people who observe Roza or the day-long fast during Ramzan, a month of special prayers for Muslims across the world.

Twenty-six year old Md. Panaulla Ahmed was resting after his ‘sehri’ (pre-dawn meal) on Wednesday morning, the second day of the month-long Ramzan fast, when he noticed his roommate Tapash Bhagawati was upset.

An active member of Team Humanity, a group of voluntary blood donors, Tapash had got a call the previous night about a patient needing two units of O positive blood which the latter’s family had tried hard to procure but with no success.

“I asked him what the problem was and immediately offered to donate my blood,” said Ahmed, a ward boy at a private hospital in Guwahati.

Tapash, who works as operation theatre technician at the same hospital, wasn’t sure whether Ahmed could help since the latter was fasting for Ramzan and could weaken after donating blood.
