“In the spirit of Arafat Day, we have come to identify and celebrate with you on this joyous occasion, we are quite aware that some of you might fast as dictated by the Prophetic Sunnah, hence, we brought some items such as a variety of fruits, water, toiletries among others as a gift to you”, the SOI President told the inmates while addressing them.
