The Hindu wedding in a mosque in India is the new talk of the town as in an incident that showcases the solidarity of the state, a Hindu couple solemnized their wedding at a mosque, on Sunday (Jan 19).
When the bride-to-be’s mother, bogged down by financial constraints, was unable to raise money for the rituals expected, the committee of the Cheruvally Muslim Jamaat mosque in Alappuzha’s Kayamkulam came forward to help her. The wedding of Sarath Sasi and Anju Ashok Kumar was performed as per Hindu rituals.
Following the wedding rituals, a vegetarian meal – sadya – was also served on mosque premises. Indian daily quoted Nujumudeen Alummoottil, secretary of Cheravally Muslim Jamaat Committee, as saying that Anju is the first woman who entered the over 100-year-old-mosque.
“The Jamaat Committee has also given Anju 10 sovereign gold and Rs200,000 as their wedding gift apart from home equipment like TV and fridge. All the wedding expenses were met by the committee, added Alummoottil.
