In what appears to be an exemplary display of communal harmony, and possibly could be an eye-opener for all those who are hell-bent on dividing people in the name of mandir-masjid, a Muslim in Central Bihar has donated his land for constructing a Shiva temple.

Mohammad Fakhrool Islam of Begusarai district, around 250 km from the state Capital, did not bat an eyelid before donating his two katthas of land for the construction of a Shiva temple at a place which is dominated by the Muslims.

Neither was he concerned about any fatwa nor his spirits dampened by the veiled threat from any self-styled Maulana.
