Puttur: Mosque committee sets example, provides accommodation to Dharmasthala pilgrims
Puttur, Feb 17: In these days when people fight in the name of religion, a mosque committee has set an example of communal harmony by providing overnight accommodation to pilgrims going to Dharmasthala and Subramanya at Sunkadakatte Madrasa.
A group of pilgrims from Kodagu had been to pilgrim centres at Subrahmanya and Dharmasthala by walk, and when they reached Sunkadakatte near Kadaba, it was nightfall. As it was dangerous to proceed by walk, the group requested for a place to stay for the night.
As per their request, Sunkadakatte Mohiuddin Juma Masjid Jamaat committee president Abdurrahman Kalara and committee members provided accommodation at the Darul Islam Madrasa.
The pilgrims resumed their journey the next morning, after thanking the mosque committee for the gesture.
