UP’s Muslim family donates land for Shiva temple; wins over internet

While there’s a lot of debate on the topic of “love jihad”, and Islamophobia, a Muslim family from UP has donated their land for Shiva temple in Meerut. With the intention of spreading a message of communal harmony, the land which was given for the temple has now been officially signed into a deed.

Haji Asim Ali gave the temple land on the occasion of Diwali, formed a committee to oversee the temple. Asim Ali kept good on the promise his father had made to give the land to the temple, even though it was done orally without any legal paperwork.
