A Qatar-based Hindu businessman is constructing a mosque in Kerala with the aim of promoting communal harmony. He claims it will be the first mosque to be built in the state by a Hindu in over 1,200 years.
‘Construction is going on. The mosque will be ready in two-three months. Over 400 people can offer prayers in that mosque at a time,’ Cheril Krishna Menon, a prominent NRI businessman in the Gulf, told IANS in an interview here.
The mosque is coming up in Kozhikode.
Menon said so far the Cheraman Mosque, constructed in the late eighth century by Chera ruler Rama Varma Kulashekhara, is the first and only mosque built by any Hindu in Kerala so far.
Menon, who is chairman and managing director of the Doha-headquartered Behzad Group of Companies, said he had taken approval from Muslim scholars and religious leaders for building the mosque.
‘I have already taken letters from Muslim religious leaders and scholars. They are okay with it. God is one and people should respect and work for the promotion of other religions also,‘ said Menon, who was awarded the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman in 2006 and Padma Shri in 2009 for social service. He was in India to attend the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas last weekend.
Menon said he would continue to work for the promotion of all major religions.
Look at the line in red — if he had said that to a Muslim, he would have broken his teeth. The guy in the name of religious harmony is making a mosque for Muslims who say “Allah is the only True God” and “It is our duty to finish all other religions.” It is like gifting a new gun to Taliban to promote non-violence. How many Muslims have you seen working for “promotion of all other religions”? Stupidity of Hindus is endless.
