Muslim Man Renovates 500-Year-Old Temple in Ahmedabad
Amidst communal tensions across the country, Moin Memon, a Muslim, is restoring a 500-year-old Hanuman temple in Ahmedabad.
Memon’s neighbours do not have any problems with a Muslim renovating their old age temple. They say that they offered Memon financial and other help but Memon refused and wished to bear the entire cost of the renovation.
Memon wants to keep this project away from politics and says that he took it up because he has faith in this. He grew up in the area and feels attached to the temple.
Memon is personally overlooking the renovation. Workers who are helping him in the project feel that everybody needs to take inspiration from him.
