Muslims Donate Land For Temple Road In Reasi

(MENAFN- Kashmir Observer) Reasi- Sending out a message of religious harmony, two Muslims in the Reasi district have come forward to donate their land for a 500-year-old Hindu temple that lacked proper accessibility. A road connecting the temple will be constructed on the land.

Gulam Rasool and Gulam Mohammad, residents of Kheral panchayat, have donated their four kanal of land to the panchayat, with an estimated cost of over one crore rupees, where a 1200-metre road will be constructed with a 10-foot width for Gupt Kashi
– Gouri Shankar temple in Kansi Patta village of Reasi district.


Authorities said the road will be built soon using panchayat funds.

Gulam Rasool, a former panchayat member and farmer, said some people tried to create a rift in society by citing the road issue.

“The temple didn't have any proper road. Some people had even run a hate campaign intending to create a rift,” he said.
