A Muslim artist along with his team is designing a 101-feet tall idol of Goddess Durga amid all the communal discord. It is said to be the world’s tallest bamboo sculpture and Bishnupur Durga Puja Committee has registered it in the “Guinness Book World Records”.

“Many people ask me why I make such Idols as I am a Muslim. But I want to tell that I have been doing this work since 1975. I always think that an artist has no religion and his only religion and duty is to serve humanity,” said artist Nuruddin.

He further said that at least 5000 bamboo poles have been used in the making of the idol.

“The work started two months back. And the height was approximately 110 feet and we were hoping to complete the work by September 20. But all of a sudden on 17th of this month, the image fell down because of the strong cyclone here in Guwahati. Fortunately, no was injured in the incident. I am thankful to the social media for their moral support. We are expecting it to inaugurate it on September 25,”said project supervisor Deep Ahmed.

The four-day Durga Puja celebrations will start on 27 September.
