And your presence in Kerala at this time, @salmanNizami_, is proof that the spirit of solidarity in our India shall also emerge victorious! Thanks for coming all the way from Kashmir to help in the #KeralaFloods! https://t.co/0Y1WCHbEEu

Salman, who has been associated with the a group of volunteers across India- helped many in resuce & relief in 2014 Kashmir floods and was spotted serving food, cleaning houses and meeting the flood victims of Kerala. Nizami, who has been associated with the volunteers group in the past, reached the flood-ravaged state and was seen serving food & cleaning houses of flood victims.
Free medical camp for flood victims at Chengannur, Kerala. Also a separate team of doctors visit different flood hit areas daily- to provide medical aid. Salute all our volunteers. Love you mates!
Photos and videos of the Salman helping people have garnered a lot of attention online. While many from Jammu and Kashmir have come forward to pledge their support and show solidarity with those affected by the devastating floods in Kerala, Nizami was lauded for reaching out to victims at ground-zero.
Time and again, the Nizami’s volunteers group has rescued, helped, offered food and shelter to people across India. Be it the Kashmir floods, Uttrakhand floods, Amarnath attack etc. Needless to say, complete restoration would require long hours of work for months at an end. However, it is also very encouraging to see the entire country joining hands to help the state in crisis.
