Shimla: While there is no dearth of people who fight in the name of religion, there are no less people who promote religious harmony. Recently, a Muslim couple got married in a Hindu temple complex in Shimla’s Rampur. This marriage of a Muslim couple took place with Islamic customs, but the reason for its discussion was that the marriage took place in a temple. The marriage took place at the Thakur Satyanarayan Temple complex run by Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
Now this marriage remains a topic of discussion. People from Muslim and Hindu communities came together to witness this marriage. All the rituals of Nikah were performed in the temple premises in the presence of Maulvi, witnesses and a lawyer. The purpose of this marriage, which took place in the temple premises, was to spread the message of religious harmony and brotherhood among the people.
Thakur Satyanarayan Temple Trust Rampur General Secretary Vinay Sharma told sources, “Vishwa Hindu Parishad runs the temple and the district office of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. Vishva Hindu Parishad and RSS are often accused of being anti-Muslim. But here a Muslim couple got married on the Hindu temple premises. This is an example in itself that Sanatan Dharma always inspires everyone to move forward by including everyone.”
Mahendra Singh Malik, father of the girl told sources, “The marriage of the daughter has been done in the Satyanarayan temple complex, Rampur. The people of the city, be it the Vishwa Hindu Parishad or the temple trust, have led a positive and active cooperation in organizing this wedding.
By participating in this marriage, the people of Rampur have given the message of brotherhood among the people. He further said that people should not be misled in such a way that mutual brotherhood gets spoiled. He further added that his daughter is an M.Tech Civil Engineer and Gold Medalist and his son-in-law is a Civil Engineer.
