A 27-year-old Muslim man in India's Bengaluru is being praised for setting an example of communal harmony. The man has been taking care of a temple in Rajaji Nagar for the past three years, ahead of the festival of Ram Navami.
Saddam Hussain, the temple's caretaker, cleans up the premises and said that he finds peace of mind while working in the temple. "I am a Muslim by birth and have been working in the temple from last three years. I feel good and it gives peace of mind. I take care of complete cleaning. No one has ever objected to it," said Hussain.

According to reports in Times Now, as part of the festival, the temple chariot is taken out for a rally across Rajaji Nagar every year and Hussein is responsible for keeping it serviced and maintained.
"He has been working with me at my shop for over 18 years. After I was elected as an office bearer of the temple committee, I gave him the responsibility of cleaning the temple. He comes every year before Ram Navami and cleans the temple," Venkatesh Babu, an office-bearer in the temple said.

Hussain has been appreciated by thousands of devotees who throng the temple.
"There are no issues between Hindus and Muslims in this region. We all live in complete harmony. This all is a political issue but common man lives cordially," added Venkatesh.
