Gifts such as this show how India is not only home to communal antipathy but at its very heart carries the emotion of religious harmony. This example of Muslim-Hindu brotherhood comes straight from Madhya Pradesh where a Muslim family has donated their land to aid in the expansion of a Hanuman temple.

Javed Ansari (34) recently donated 1,905 square feet of his land towards the expansion of Imli Wale Hanuman Mandir at village Bagwaz in the district, Sub Divisional Magistrate R B Sindoskar told PTI. “Ansari had submitted an application to donate 1,905 square feet from his land to the committee running the management of Imli Wale Hanuman Mandir. After recording the statements of Ansari and his family members, who jointly share the ownership, the land was handed over to the committee,” he added.

 Ansari, who donated the land, said, “I have donated this land to Hanuman Mandir to send out a message of communal harmony. I believe that such gestures will increase brotherhood between the Hindu and Muslim communities.”

This temple is located about one kilometer from the district headquarters on Gupteshwar road in village Bagwaz. This land would be used for the seating arrangements of devotees and the boundary wall.
