Since the Muslim inmates celebrate Diwali and Gurupurab with the same zeal, the rest of the inmates decided to spread the love during Ramzan. They all reciprocated the gesture by fasting. They say that fasting helps them to cleanse their body too.

The loving gesture has brought the inmates closer. As these friends chat and spend time together all day and finally break their fast in the evening, they pray not just for their families, but for the families of all who have been keeping the fast with them.

In addition to spreading the message of love and communal harmony, the inmates have created a positive atmosphere in the Ludhiana jail.
