In a commendable gesture by Saed Khan, local corporator and president of Harda district Wakf committee, Madhya Pradesh, gifted the loudspeaker to the Hanuman Temple in the area when it was stolen a couple of days ago. When the country is going through the religious unrest, this move comes as a relief and optimism.
“Five days ago, thieves broke into the temple and stole the loudspeaker. For the past few days, whenever I passed by the temple, there was no sound of devotional songs. I felt bad and asked the priest of the temple if anyone had brought a new one. When he said no, we bought a new amplifier and gifted it to my Hindu brothers”.
He also said
“Even if some people have made controversial remarks about the use of loudspeakers in mosques and temples, I just want to say that in India, people have never objected to such things…”
In June,a temple in Kerala threw Iftar party for Muslims. Muslims contributed to the restoration of the temple.
We are defined by the choices we make is all we can say!
