This is quite common in India.Many temples in South India have Muslims as Trustees of Temples.In many a temple, the right to perform some ritual like supplying flowers, organizing some festivals are left to Muslims.In the famous SriRangamtemple,Sri Rangam , first reverence is made to Thulukka Nachiar,a Muslim woman.

 

Be careful. What is the guarantee that when you are praying for world peace and long life and happiness for all, next to most likely to turn out to be a human bomb, and all your prayers won’t get vaporized. I hope Talibanis, Al Quaedas are not eyeing this piece of article.
