Jagatsinghpur, July 29 (LocalWire): The Temporary Medical Camp of Bishnupur Panchayat has set an example of communal harmony and brotherhood between the Hindu/Muslim community as Muslim migrant returnees offered album of Lord Jagannath as a gift to the local Sarpanch and Panchayat Samiti members.
After last month’s incident in which a mob ha set fire to a police vehicle and ransacked a police outpost for restricting Azaan, it was a challenging task for the police and administration to maintain peace and tranquility in the area.
However, the efforts of the Sarpanch of Bisanpur Panchayat Basant Mohapatra and Panchayat Samiti member Amulay Kumar Mohapatra have succeeded in bringing between both Hindu/Muslim migrant returnees.
Twenty Muslim migrant returnees recently expressed their satisfaction with the activities and behaviour of the Sarpanch and TMC personnel.
“20 Muslim returnees thanked the Sarpanch and Panchayat Samiti members for their good treatment and hospitality, which has created an atmosphere of brotherhood here,” said Sarpanch Mohapatra.
“The returnees also collected funds amongst them gifted an album of Lord Jagannath and his siblings to the Sarpanch and the Panchayat Samiti to express their satisfaction,” he added.
Arshad Ali, a migrant who returned from Karnataka and stayed in the TMC for 14 days said, “The supply of food, sanitation and behaviour of the personnel was extremely hospitable for which we did not feel isolated at all.
There is no difference between Allah and Lord Jagannath, hence we gifted a memoir to the TMC personnel in order to continue our good relationship with them”.
Returnee Ramesh Chandra Sahoo said, “The gift given by the returnees was a sign of good faith and brotherhood amongst us.
We appreciated their gesture and efforts very much.”
