Harmony award for Old Delhi worker

NEW DELHI: Jayshree Shukla isn’t your everyday heritage enthusiast. While she captures the daily street life of Emperor Shah Jahan’s capital on camera, she also tries to live it as much as possible. Last year, she even fasted on Ramzan along with Muslims and broke them at Jama Masjid.

For being such a connoisseur who has “created understanding and awareness about Muslims”, Shukla has been honoured by Delhi Minorities Commission with its annual award in the Communal Harmony category for 2019.

Village with no Muslims observes Muharram

GADAG: A village in Gadag district in North Karnataka observes Muharram every year, and not one of its 2,500 residents of Hiremannur in Ron taluk is a Muslim.

This has been a centuriesold syncretic tradition and ‘Ale Habba’ — as Muharram is known in local parlance — is observed along with the installation of ‘Panjas’ and entering of the fire. “We observe Ale Habba with devotion,” said Andappa Jigalur, an elder member in the village.

Shivappa Olekar, another resident of the village, said the Covid-19 and the lockdown had resulted in the local economy suffering a huge setback. “As a result, only few of the residents could contribute towards Muharram this year. Each year, we collect funds from all households in the village. This year, despite the problems they are facing, the villagers are contributing what they can. Many of them are offering ‘Deergha Danda Namaskara’ at the Panjas,” said Olekar .

Muslims protecting Bengaluru temple

BENGALURU: Amid the arson and stone pelting in East Bengaluru on Tuesday night, there was one act of harmony that lasted more than three hours. It was captured on a video clip which went viral drawing praise as well as some criticism that it was a cover-up.

Amateur cameraman and vlogger Syed Mohammed Hanif, 27, of Ashok Nagar got a call around 9.30pm on Tuesday about the riots in Kavalbyrasandra. He rushed to the spot and reached the BMTC bus terminus. “As I was running around and filming, I saw an unusual sight of some men forming a human chain and standing still. When I went closer, I realised the men were trying to protect a temple from rioters,” said Hanif, whose video got thousands of hits and shares on the internet.

The men were protecting a Hanuman temple even as protesters vandalised property and burnt vehicles in the area.

A Nadeem (29), a link in the human chain and seen in the video clip, said a few Muslim men got together to protect the temple. “When I went there, there were around 10 men trying hard to protect the shrine. I ran and joined them. Within minutes, more people joined the chain and there was no way the protesters could come near it. We were there till 11.30pm,” he said.
