Temple president donates land for masjid expansion Dakshina Kannada district Of Karnataka

Though Dakshina Kannada district has been branded a communally sensitive region, in a classic example, the president of a Hindu temple committee, by donating his private land to a nearby masjid committee for its expansion plans, has set a precedent.

Mohan Rai of Olemundovu village under Keyyur gram panchayat of Dakshina Kannada district in Karnataka, who is also the president of Eliya Sri Vishnumurthy Temple, has donated 12 cents of his land to a masjid located next to his property – heralding the communal harmony amid the talk that say otherwise.

In fact, the committee of Olemundovu Masjid had requested Mohan for the land for its expansion plans. Mohan, who was also participating in programmes at masjid, on December 15 agreed to hand over 12 cents land to the committee in the presence of Masjid Committee president Puthu Monu, Khatib Sayyadalavi Thangal Masthikundu, leader Umar Musliyar and Renjaladi Islamic Centre convener K R Hussein Darimi.

“The masjid is located close to my property and the committee needed additional land. Though we are of different faiths, we have only one god. Hence, we have to respect all religions. We should not discriminate in the name of religions. God has given me everything and I am donating a part of it,” said Mohan.

Hussein Darimi said it was a memorable day for the villagers of Olemundovu. “Every Indian should show such generosity. There is nothing in this nation that is bigger than Hindu-Muslim unity,” he added.

    Why is this Hindu committing HINDU GENOCIDE? Why did he not give a part of HIS PERSONALPROPERTY to the mosque? HE HAS NO BLOODY RIGHT to give the communiy property to the muslims… OR TOANY ONE…He must be branded an ANTIHUMAN… A PIMP.
