Yet another example of India's pluralistic culture surfaced when in Karnataka's Davangere district three people from the Hindu community donated their land for building a wall of an Eidgah.
Earlier two Hindu sisters Saroj and Anita donated their father's land worth more than 1.5 crores to an Eidgah in Kashipur town of Uttarakhand while in Maharashtra's Buldhana district a Hindu village gifted loudspeaker to a nearby mosque in order to register their protest against the ongoing loudspeaker row.
A senior IAS officer of Karnataka, Mohammad Mohsin took to Twitter to share the heatwarming story about the incident. "When the entire world is celebrating the Eid festival, here is a heartwarming story from a remote village in the Davanagere District of the State where Hindus donated land to build the Idgah wall," he tweeted.

He further say that last year a plan was made to build a new wall for the security of the Idgah in Anaberu village, thus the need for a lot of land came to the fore following which local residents Rajashekharappa, K.C. Rajappa, and Balagetara Shekharappa came forward and donated their plots adjacent to the Idgah.

*Rajashekarappa, K. C. Rajappa, and Balagettara Shekarappa donated land.* Now, wall has been inaugurated.
Rajappa is a member of the Anjaneya Temple.
A new wall of Idgah has finally built on the land that was donated. Mohsin further tweeted that the donors were felicitaed for their support in th construction of the wall.
This news comes as a breath of fresh air especially when the situation in Karnataka remains tense amid calls by right-wing elements to boycott Muslim traders, the hijab row, halal row and loudspeaker row.
