Muslims in Rajasthan village donate abandoned graveyard land for temple

Muslims in Rajasthan's Sikar locale have set an endearing case of religious brotherhood by giving area to construct a Hindu temple.

Muslims in Kolida gave 2 bighas or 34,848 square feet of land from their deserted cemetery to the town's Meels, who have a place with the Jat people group. The Meels have built a sanctuary of nearby goddess Surjal Mata at the cost of about Rs 50 lakh on the land.

"The Muslims had given 1 bigha arrive 10 years back and we had made a little sanctuary. Around two years prior, we began extending the sanctuary and developed shy of land. The Muslims then gave another a large portion of a bigha around then. Somewhere in the range of six months prior, they gave the staying half bigha as well," Shivpal Singh Meel, a previous sarpanch of the town, said.

Meel included that the Jats never approached their Muslim neighbors for the land and they themselves approached to help them.

"There is colossal fraternity between the groups here. On the introduction of the sanctuary as well, which occurred on Friday, individuals and pioneers from both the groups came," he said.
