“The village has two gurdwaras apart from a dera but no mosque. Its Muslim families go to nearby village for prayers, so my family gave them land for a mosque and will also contribute in the construction” Singh was quoted as saying by The Times of India.

Moti Khan the supervisor of the project said, “We are indebted to the Sikh family and many others who have promised to support us. We pray for similar brotherhood everywhere for communal peace.”
