People of Duswakalan village in Maharajganj district of Uttar Pradesh have set an example by amicably agreeing to the construction of a temple next to a mazar, after idols of Lord Shiva and Nandi were recovered during renovation of the mazar.

Idols recovered

The idols were recovered while digging a mazar of Malang Baba here, following which members of the Hindu and Muslim communities held a panchayat, Additional Director General (Law and Order) Brij Lal said on Thursday.

Taking note of the sentiments of both the sections, the panchayat unanimously decided that of the total land of mazar, a temple would be constructed on one half and a mazar on the rest of the area, he said.
