“We are very blessed to be here in the same country where Shri Ram was born, and we are also very fortunate that the temple is going to be built in front of us. Shri Ram has taught us ‘dharma’ as a way of life. Let us all come together and participate in this divine activity and help in the construction of the Shri Ram Temple at Ayodhya with an open heart,” says Zahara.

We might belong to a different religion but we didn't come from Turkey. Our ancestors belong to this land and we're in harmony with our Hindu brothers."

 A doctor family from Patan, Gujarat, who also belong to the Muslim community, have made a sizeable contribution. "Lord Ram has left everyone together. And no one discriminated between high and low. In that way all the people in the country remained equal and contributed as much as they could for the prosperity of the nation," Dr Hamdi Mansoori, who and his wife donated Rs 1.51 lakh, told the media.

And no amount is too small, proponents say. In Hyderabad, a resident of Mallapur, Syed Ibrahim, donated Rs 50 for the temple construction. "Hindus and Muslims must live united with religious harmony," he says.
