In a heartwarming incident, a little girl chants Gayatri Mantra while offering Namaz and netizens are overwhelmed with the innocent gesture. Little girl’s father named Rohan Sonalkar took to microblogging site Twitter to share the moment and said that his daughter wanted to offer Namaz during the month of Ramadan, so she bent down, just the way Muslims do to offer prayers and surprisingly started chanting Gayatri Mantra.
He wrote in his post, “My daughter just said that she needs to do the namaz. She bent down in proper Muslim prayer form and started chanting the Gayatri mantra because that’s the only prayer she knows”. Since the time Rohan has posted the tweet, which soon went viral all over the Internet, it garnered more than 4,700 likes and around 1.3K retweets.
One Twitterati shared a similar incident of his childhood and wrote, “U know what I seriously did the same during #Ramzan when I was almost 8. Wore Mummy’s black dupatta and chanted – Om Namah Shivaya as it was Shivratri that day. I clearly remember. God bless the little doll.. I got reminded of my childhood” while the other wrote, “Rohan, The ways & means are different, but for believers, by all means, all roads lead to the same destination. I must congratulate the parents for bringing up your daughter with such open mind. We owe it to the next generation”.
