    Bihar's Muslims donate land for world's largest Hindu temple

    PATNA: Muslims in Bihar, in a stellar demonstration of communal harmony, have donated land to help build the world's largest Hindu temple which will have the capacity to seat a staggering 20,000 people.

    "Muslims have not only donated land, they have also provided land at a nominal rate for construction of the world's largest Hindu temple. Without help of Muslims, it would have been difficult realise this dream project," Acharya Kishore Kunal, secretary of the Patna-based cash-rich Mahavir Mandir Trust that is undertaking the ambitious project, told IANS.

    Kunal, a former Indian Police Service officer, said that Muslims have come forward to ensure that the temple comes up soon. The construction of the temple will commence in June at Janki Nagar near Kesaria in East Champaran district, about 150 km from here. It will cost over Rs.500 crore.

    "It is usual for Hindus to donate land for temple, but it is unusual for Muslims to donate land for the construction of temple," he said and added that Muslims should be lauded for joining hands with Hindus to donate land for a pious cause.

    Kunal said that more than three dozen Muslim families have their land in the middle of the proposed location of the temple and some Muslims families have land along the main road that connects to the project site.

    "Some Muslims donated lands and others helped and supported us to purchase their land for the temple. If Muslims had not come forward, the temple project was sure to have got delayed..."

    He said that Mahavir Mandir Trust has obtained 200 acres of land. "Hindus and Muslims have donated about 50 acres of land and the remaining has been purchased."

    Earlier, some Muslims had helped build a Hindu temple dedicated to Goddess Durga in Gaya district, another temple was dedicated to God Shiva in Begusarai district and in Sitamarhi district.


    Mumbai-based Valecha Construction Company will construct the temple, which will be 2,500 feet long, 1,296 feet wide and 379 feet high.

    "The temple will be earthquake proof (since it) is near the Nepal border," Kunal said.

    Gurgaon based Radheyshyam Sharma, director of Indgenious Studio Pvt Ltd, will look after the architectural aspects.

    He said the Virat Ramayan Mandir will be taller than the world famous 12th century Angkor Wat temple complex in Cambodia, which is 215 feet high. The complex will comprise 18 temples with high spires and its Shiv temple would have the largest Shivling in the world, another distinction.

    He said the temple would have a seating capacity of 20,000 people in the hall facing the main temple having the idols of Ram, Sita, Luv and Kush. According to him, no temple in the world has such a huge seating capacity.

    He said the temple was to be named "Virat Angkor Wat Ram Mandir", but later its name was changed following objections by people in Cambodia.


    Angkor Wat was built during king Suryavarman's rule and is today a Unesco World Heritage site.

    This is great news. Now I wish the cash rich trust spends at least 20% of this amount on improving the lives of the people in the area.

    The local people will benefit from the tourist inflow and jobs at the construction site.

    a similar development had taken place in Gaya distt. too there in 2012.

    also, earlier this year, it was revealed by the authorities of a famous temple in a TN village that an elderly Muslim gentleman, hurt by an attack & vandalism on the temple, had donated over 1L anonymously towards its restoration-work.

    In my area, Muslims don't allow to build temporary structures during Durga puja. They are encroaching temple land in the areas where they have attained majority and these never get published in media whereas Muslims donating a 100 sqft land for Hindu temple become headlines.
    Further, Kaziranga National Park (Assam) is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, where encroachments and construction of permanent structure are punishable offence. Many hospitality Chains were denied permission citing the world heritage status but Govt and UNESCO is blind towards rampant encroachments by Bangladeshi Muslims in KNP.

    the wiki page on Acharya Kishore Kunal instills faith that the trust won't disappoint on that front too.

    first the commie scum, and now mamata bi....welcoming and nurturing bangladeshi bugs with open arms! WB (and Assam, etc.) have their fates sorrily sealed for more time to come. what was that village where some years back the villagers had decided not to celebrate Durga Pooja, tired of attacks by muslims (i suppose most would've been bangladeshis)?!

    WB is going to dogs. The little resistance that had a chance of being built up, has just been dismantled by our beloved PM in his last visit. So, don't worry some day this sore will infect the whole India and then I want to see what love the successor of Mamata bibi, the one true love of Mr.Modi spreads.

    PM receives flak even if he does something (in accordance with the whims of the left-libbies) and receives flak as it is if doesn't (again, in accordance with....), so why not pull the ears of such rogue ministers and CMs and make them dance to his tune, instead of going soft on them?! these buggers perhaps don't know the word 'grateful'; remember mamata bi's arrogance even after she had travelled to delhi begging for funds to the PM?! my best and only guess is that the PM would enter the 'beast'-mode chupke se after his agenda of development using the popular 'sabka saath, sabka vikaas' gains good essential traction and starts giving fruitful results, which then could no longer be ignored or/and nitpicked against by the MSM, opposition, etc.; the push on his Govt. for the time being is only regards to the promises he had made regarding development, and perhaps only after he has 'gainfully' delivered on that front will he gain the confidence of the masses as well as media, and that's probably when the danda will be revealed and served to some very deserving rears publicly! though that may take another term for the Govt., which means another such victory, which means will have to placate everyone by way of vikaas-work.

    Tell your Muslim brothers to vacate Ayodhya Ram Mandir land and support Construction of Ram Temple. Tell them to set example of communal harmony where it is required.
    Pakistanis won't understand the concept of RSS. You won't get a place to hide if they really become Toxic.

    Not here. In the real world. Plus you can't vote for the BJP and pretend to care about communal harmony.

    Who is going to be the judge of that...I would rather vote for sense than nonsense. Do you think non communal politics is possible in India?

    As long as the people of India vote for the communal bjp, as long as orgs like rss/vhp aren't banned, how is that possible? Maybe we're destined to suffer.
