Now when anyone needs anything to eat and drink, just come here and take this crescent community out of the fridge
After the inauguration ceremony, the head of COPO, Mohammad Rizvi, said that the inauguration day was chosen because 28th Safar is the day of martyrdom of Imam Hassan and according to our historical books, it is also the day of demise of the Holy Prophet. The fridge will stay here all week
