A mosque organised a Hindu wedding and all this amid CAA-NRC crises. A mosque in Kerala’s Kayamkulam hosted the Hindu marriage ceremony on Sunday.
Hindu priests performed the rituals of the wedding. Both the communities hosted the guests in front of a lighted traditional lamp.
Committee of the Cheravally Muslim Jamaat mosque decided to extend a helping hand towards the mother of the bride who was unable to raise money for the wedding.
“Today this sets an example for the world. A Hindu couple married at mosque premises. About 1400 years ago Muhammad Nabi had opened the doors of the mosque to Christians and Judah,” said the secretary of the mosque committee, Najumudeen Alummoottil.
The mosque was decorated for the wedding. This, when the bride Anju and bride-groom Sarath exchanged marital vows.
“My younger brother and his friend were the reason for this to happen. It happened as a result of their discussions. We are very happy,” said Anju.
A vegetarian meal – sadya – was served in the premises after the wedding. Soon after the wedding ceremony, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan took to Facebook to congratulate the newly married couple who also said that “Kerala is one.”
“Best wishes to the bride, family members and church committee to all who worked for this. Kerala is one; we can say louder that we are single – with these good hearts,” read the message on Vijayan`s Facebook post.
