“Kidney has no religious labels,” external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted on Friday while thanking a Muslim man who offered to donate his kidney.

Scores of people have offered to donate kidney to 64-year-old Swaraj, who is undergoing tests for a transplant surgery at AIIMS in Delhi and on the lookout for a suitable donor.

“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 to donate his kidney to her.

“@SushmaSwaraj mam I am a BSP supporter and a Muslim,bt 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 person Nyamath Ali Shaik also offered his kidney to Swaraj saying he was ready to donate his kidney, if need be.

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

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