#GoodNews: In Bihar Village, Muslims Dedicate a Temple to Hindus
Video Editor: Abhishek Sharma
The Muslim community of Budhpur village in Gaya, Bihar, has crowd-sourced money and built a temple for the Hindu community of the village. This step was taken by the Muslims as the Hindus in the area could not afford to build a temple and would pray to a stone with God’s name written on it.
The Muslim community not only donated approximately three lakhs for the establishment of the temple, one of its members also donated a plot of land, where the temple has been built.
The Muslim-dominated village, which is now setting an example of communal harmony for the nation, was once a refuge for Naxalites and Maoists.
The residents told ANI that Hindus and Muslims in the area have always lived in harmony. They often take part in each other’s festivals.
