Hindu Man in Dharavi Reaches out to Muslim Friends
In the wake of the recent Dadri incident, in which a mob of people killed a Muslim man after rumours of him storing cow meat surfaced, a Hindu man in Dharavi has succeeded in setting a good example. As a mosque in Bandra’s Dharavi area is getting renovated, a Hindu shopkeeper has temporarily given the space inside his store to Muslim devotees to perform their daily prayers. “Five months ago, they asked me if they could pay me rent and use the space inside my shop to offer prayers. I refused the proposal and asked them to use the space free of cost, instead,” recalled Deepak Namdeo Kale, the Hindu shop owner.
