April 27 Indian Federal Minister Jakindr Singh Shekhawat caused controversy after he told two crying women during a visit to a hospital where patients were admitted to Coronavirus that “pray to God that everything will be all right”.
When Shekhawat visited a hospital in Rajasthan, a man came up to him and asked him to send a doctor to save his mother, India Today reported Wednesday. However, when the doctor arrived, he found that the man’s mother had died. Shortly after the incident, Shekhawat met two more crying women who asked what the high-ranking official’s fate would be. In response, Shekhawat told them that by reciting the name of God and offering a coconut, “everything will be all right.”
Indian media said Mr. Shekhawat’s remarks provoked strong opposition from many people, but he did not see any problems with his remarks. In response, some Indian netizens sarcastically said: “His speech is indeed right.” When you lose all hope for the government, you have to rely on God.
