People from different faiths came together to pray and show solidarity for the South Asian country in the grip of a deadly second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
Founder of AISECS, Gurnam Singh, said prayers are magical and have healing powers. As he believes in bringing the people together, he kept the prayer meet open for the whole Indian Australian community, and people have joined from all the faith.

Mr Dominello said he could feel the pain Indians are going through in the time of this crisis.
“I have been to India three times and Italy three times,” said Mr Dominello of Italian origin, adding, “I know that India is a deeply spiritual place. And I know that through our prayers, we are hoping that they will find some comfort.”
Consul General of India in Sydney, Manish Gupta, expressed gratitude for Australia’s support and prayers.
