Muslims support rebuild

Muslims in Kashmir are supporting the rebuilding of a Christian school that was destroyed by fire a year ago during anti-Christian violence.

"What happened here is certainly wrong and it should not have happened. I can assure you that our people will not allow it to happen again," said Munshi Mukhtar Ahmed, a Muslim teacher in a government school in the town of Tangmarg.

"The burning of the school was a big loss for the local [Muslim] community and they are still feeling the pinch of it." The church-run school has about 450 students, almost all of them Muslims.
