Asansol’s Imam Imdadul Rashidi’s young son was killed during the ram navami riots that swept through Asansol in 2018. At that moment of grief, the Imam not only appealed for peace but also ensured that there was no retaliation. He even refused to pursue police investigation into the death. This, like Gandhiji in Noakhali during partition, brought peace to Asansol. SabrangIndia brings to you this exclusive interview with the Imam himself.
