The Jamaat of Coimbatore strongly condemned the car blast in front of the temple on Thursday and said that no one can disturb Hindu-Muslim unity.
A thirteen-member delegation of the Jamaat visited the Kottai Easwaran Temple as part of efforts to strengthen communal harmony in the area. The delegation spoke to the priests and other officials on the incident for about an hour. The delegation included Ulema (Muslim scholars).
The chief priest of the temple Sundaresan and secretary Prabhakaran welcomed the members by presenting them with shawls. A few days ago, a car exploded in Udakkam area, killing one person. The area is considered communally sensitive.
Talking to reporters, Jamaat president Inayatullah said, “Islam has never supported violence and has only favored peace.” He said that the meeting with the priest and others would serve as a platform to maintain communal harmony and peace among all sections of the citizens irrespective of religion, caste and creed. He said the Jamaat wants Coimbatore to be known for communal harmony.
The members of the Jamaat stressed on peace and brotherhood and said that no power in the world can break Hindu-Muslim unity. He also urged the leaders not to use religion to gain political mileage.
