NEW DELHI — Establshing mutual trust and friendship among people, a mosque near Alapuzzha, Kerala will soon open its gates for a traditional Hindu marriage, reports PTI.
In a rare show of camaraderie, the wedding of Anju (22), daughter of Bindhu and late Ashokan, would take place on January 19 on the premises of the Cheruvally Muslim Jamaat mosque as per Hindu rituals.
The family of the bride, who is from a financially poor background, had sought the help of the mosque committee to conduct the wedding.
“The mosque committee will gift 10 sovereigns of gold and Rs two lakh to Anju as a wedding gift. The marriage will take place according to the Hindu rituals. We have also arranged food for around 1,000 people,” secretary of Cheruvally Jamaat committee Nujumudeen Alummoottil told PTI.
The family, which stays near the mosque, has been facing a lot of hardships after the death of Ashokan in 2018, Nujumudeen Alummoottil said.
