Mangaluru: Mallur village - A role model for religious harmony

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (EP)

Mangaluru, April 26: The Karnataka coast has unfortunately become a synonym to communal unrest. Though a few people belonging to different religions are living like brothers, their harmony gets masked due to a few miscreants. Hence communal tension is the first thing that comes to mind, when one speaks about the coast.

However, a small village near Bantwal is breaking prejudices and Hindus and Muslims here are becoming role models for living in love and harmony.

A programme held in Uddabettu mosque, near Mallur, Bantwal has become a perfect example for religious harmony. A group here has stood the test of time, overcoming communal hatred and maintaining their relationships with each other during temple fair and Mosque uroos.

The programme in memory of Sayyed Hassan Hydros in Sayyed Hydros Jumma mosque, Uddabettu is held once in every three years. Village people belonging to all religions take part in the uroos since olden days. Mallur Mahalingeshwara temple which is in a stage of reconstruction has presented Hore Kanike, a tradition that is being continued since the last thirteen uroos celebrations of this mosque. Besides this, the Hindu people have taken part in the prayers held in the mosque.

The relationship that is continuing since the last several years consists of Hindus donating Hore Kanike to mosque programme, serving food as volunteers in mosque and extending help in road construction and cleanliness.

Similarly, Muslims take part in religious programme in the temple. Muslim community members have also donated money for the renovation of the temple. In this manner, Muslims and Hindus are living here like brothers for the last several years becoming a model for Hindu-Muslim brotherhood and religious harmony.
