From making an effort to sanitise the place of worship in the city to the district administration office, MGM Khan from the city has taken the initiative to ensure spiritual spaces are sanitised.
Social activist MGM Khan (27) who is an advocate by profession started the sanitation of Masjid, Temples, Church, Gurudwara with non-alcoholic chemical sanitiser from the last month. Covering the religious centres from Visakhapatnam to Baiyavaram limits, Khan has used 2,330 litres of sanitiser for 205 centres and his target is to use 5,000 litres and cover all the spiritual centres.
While preparing the sanitiser, Khan mixed a few drops of the holy Ganges water, which he had collected in January while he was on a mountaineering course at Uttarkashi.
Since prevention is better than cure, Khan who is single-handedly managing the sanitisation work, says that the spread of virus can be contained in such places by maintain hygiene. “My goal for this year is to serve as many people as possible and what better option than catering to the need of the hour.”
Khan who is yoga trainer, psychologist, mountaineer and NSS state awardee 2014, added, “I charge only Rs 2 per one spiritual centre, whether it is one floor or five floors. I also want to spread awareness among people on the importance to maintain hygiene in everyday life.”
