Noble Sikh family in Indian Punjab donates family land for mosque construction
A noble Sikh Family in Indian Punjab Saturday donated land to the Muslims for the establishment and construction of a mosque while other Sikh and Hindu families rush in to support the construction.
Peace and conflict Research Professor Ashok Swain shared a tweet showing the positive side of the Sikhs and Hindus as well, which is hidden deliberately by the media.
The professor stated that “While Hindu supremacists are attacking Muslims praying in public places, a Sikh family has donated land for a mosque in Punjab, India. More Sikh and Hindu families are supporting the mosque's construction, so 15 Muslim families don't have to walk 5km to pray.”
The Sikh and Hindu communities in Punjab made a goodwill gesture by donating their own private land for the purpose of building a mosque so the Muslims are facilitated in practising their religion and don’t have to walk a long way.
This gesture was also criticized by people. Some say that they can pray at their homes while some say that the land could have been donated to a Goshala or School instead of being donated to the Muslims.
