Bihar Muslim family donates land worth 2.5 cr to build world’s largest Hindu temple

Patna: Breaking all the religious barriers, and setting an example of communal harmony, a Muslim family in Bihar has donated a land worth Rs.2.5 crore for construction of the world’s largest Hindu temple Virat Ramayan Mandir in the Kaithwalia area of East Champaran district in the state.

Ishtiyaq Ahmad Khan, who has donated the land, is a businessman from East Champaran based in Guwahati and he thought that it was his responsibility to do something for the construction of the temple.

The Virat Ramayan Mandir is slated to be taller than the world-famous 12th century Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia, which is 215 feet high.

The total construction cost is estimated to be around Rs. 500 crore.

In the past two years, there have been many reports of donations from the Muslim community for the construction of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh.

In May last year, WS Habeeb, a Muslim businessman from Chennai, had donated Rs 1 lakh for the Ram temple in Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Rama.

Several members of the minority community in the country have also come forward to make donations for the grand temple, for which construction began in August 2020.
