Bareilly: Amid the ongoing row over intolerance in the country, an incident from Uttar Pradesh's Bareilly that shows communal harmony is very much alive, has come as a breather.

As per a report in Navbharat Times, a group of Muslim men came together to collect around Rs 50,000 in donations in order to free 15 Hindus languishing in a jail.

The men were in judicial custody for involvement in petty crimes and could not come out as their families did not have the money to pay bail/fine amount.

In fact, one of the men had even completed his jail term but was still languishing inside as he could not pay the fine amount of Rs 1000.
