A 70-year-old Sikh man has donated a piece of land for a mosque in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar district during the auspicious month of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.

Sukhpal Singh Bedi, a social activist, made the announcement at an event in Purkazi town in the district on Sunday. 

He handed over land documents for the 900 sq ft plot to Nagar Panchayat Chairman Zahir Farooqui.
