Kidney has no religious labels, this is what External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, undergoing treatment for renal failure, tweeted while thanking a Muslim man who offered her his kidney. 64-year-old Swaraj has been offered kidneys by scores of people since Wednesday when she said on Twitter that she was in hospital due to kidney failure and was undergoing tests for a transplant.

“Thank you very much brothers. I am sure, kidney has no religious labels,” she tweeted.

Her remark came in response to a tweet by Mujib Ansari who offered his kidney to her while adding that he is a Muslim and a supporters of BSP in Uttar Pradesh.

“@SushmaSwaraj mam I am a BSP supporter and a Muslim,but I want 2 donate my kidney 4 u,4 me u r like my mother figure, May allah bless u,” he said on twitter.

Another Muslim Nyamath Ali Shaik also offered his kidney to Swaraj saying he was ready to donate his kidney, if need be.

Another Twitter follower Jaan Shah also said he was readyto offer his kidney to her.

Swaraj has been flooded with wishes from politicians cutting across party lines as well as from a cross-section of society.

She has been undergoing treatment for renal failure at AIIMS.

Swaraj also exuded confidence of being able to come out of the health condition with good wishes of people and blessings of God.

            Every Indian should donate their kidney upon their death. If this were the case there would be no need for live donors. In the developed countries a lot of people donate their organs after death and so people in these countries have very much higher chance of finding a donor organ.

              You are right Sushmaji but does your party believe in such philosophies? Please ask the saffron clad Aditya nath, Sakshi maharaj and their fountainhead RSS. Best wishes for your quick recovery.
