Muslims celebrate Durga Puja in Tripura – The Hindu

Setting an example of communal harmony, several Durga pujas are being organised by the Muslim community in Tripura. The big budget puja of the ‘Blood Drop’ club in the Sonamura sub-division of Sipahijala district was held under the guidance of a Muslim president of the puja committee.

“In this Hindu majority area, they have elected me as president of the Puja Committee for the past three consecutive years. From my childhood I have been involved with the Durga puja because I have never felt that it is for the Hindus only. We organise the puja, eat and share the joy jointly,” said Basirudding Bhuyan, President of the Puja Committee.
