Shajapur: In order to reduce noise pollution, Hindu and Muslim communities in Shajapur showed an example of communal harmony.

As per News18 reports, both the communities come to a decision not to use loud speakers at the time of prayers in mosques and temples respectively.

Rajeev Sharmna, Shajapur collector has approached both the groups before the implementation of this rule in the city in order to reduce levels of noise pollution.

Therefore from now onwards, loud speakers will not be allowed for Muslim call to prayer, Azaan, at Betul Hamd Masjid located at Eidgah road and neither for Bhajans and other religious programmes.

However, loud speakers will be used only during Aarti in three of the temples, the report added.

The decision was accepted by the authorities of Sri Ram temple (Sharad Road), Sai temple (Tanki Chowraha) and Gayatri Shaktipeeth temple.
