Oman to allow temple, gurdwara

Wednesday November 24, 2010 06:48:51 PM,  IANS

New Delhi: Oman has assured India that it will soon allow a temple and a gurdwara to be built in the country, home to some 500,000 expatriate Indians, it was announced Wednesday.

The assurance was given by Omani Minister of Awqaf and Religious Affairs Shaikh Abdullah bin Mohammed al Salmi to India's Minister for Minority and Corporate Affairs Salman Khurshid.

Khurshid was in Muscat to represent India as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's special envoy on the 40th anniversary of the renaissance of Oman celebrated Sunday.

The Omani minister told Khurshid "that permission for building of a temple and a gurdwara would be given shortly", an official statement said.

Khurshid also interacted with a section of Indian expatriates. Of the over 4.8 million expatriate Indians in the Gulf, 500,000 are in Oman, according to official estimates.

The Indian minister held talks with Omani leadership to expand India-Oman ties.

"During his meeting with King Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said, Kurshid conveyed warm greetings and felicitations on behalf of the prime minister and the people of India," the statement said.

The minister's visit coincided with the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Khurshid also called on Oman's Minister of Commerce and Industry Maqbool bin Ali bin Sultan and discussed strengthening of collaboration in food, education and IT sectors.

"Space, renewable energy and nuclear energy cooperation also came in for discussion," according to the statement.
