A gesture of harmony in Keyyur

In a rare gesture, a progressive farmer who is also the president of a temple has promised to donate land for the work on the extension of a dargah, at Keyyur in Puttur.

Mohan Rai, a resident of Olemundovu is also the president of Eliya Sri Vishnumurthy Temple. Olemundovu dargah and masjid is situated adjacent to the farm land owned by Rai.

The masjid committee was facing shortage of land for the extension of the dargah. Accordingly, they sought land from Rai. Rai who promised to look into the issue, on Friday, promised to hand over 12 cents land to the masjid.

Rai said "We have to respect all. It is not right to have lack of trust among the communities. God has given me everything. I am now giving small piece of land for God's work. We should not fight over religion."
