In the last two days, they meticulously cleaned two temples, in Kotturpuram and Saidapet. “We find Hindus are unable to worship at temples in some areas because they have been severely affected owing to floods. So, we cleaned the mosques and temples and the streets badly damaged in the two areas. In the coming week, we will do similar work in other areas of the city,” Peer Mohammed, postgraduate in engineering and a student wing secretary (social service) of Jammat E Islami Hind, said. “Throughout the process, people there helped us and were very happy that the cleaning was done,” he added.
Jalaludeen, secretary of the group, said they took utmost care while cleaning the temples in both areas.
Mr. Ali commended the people of Chennai for coming together irrespective of caste, creed or religion to serve flood victims.
