Udupi: The coastal districts might have been in news in the recent past for communal unrest, but it is an event like this one which upholds communal harmony and love for each other.

Members of the Udupi District Muslim Paryaya Souharda Samiti took a step forward to uphold religious peace and harmony by taking out a Horekanike procession from Jodu Katte to the Rajangana Parking Space here on Wednesday.

People generously offered donations of food grains and vegetables for the Paryaya festival slated to be held on January 18, where 84-year-old Vishwesha Tirtha Swamiji of Pejawar Mutt is all set to ascend to the Paryaya peeth at the 800-year-old Sri Krishna Mutt/Temple for a record fifth time.

The foodgrains and other items were taken in a procession  in 35 vans and autorickshaws and later shifted to a big store hall called the Hasiru Horekanike Ugrana at the Rajangana parking space.

The Samiti had earlier served buttermilk to the devotees participating in ‘Pura Pravesha’ ceremony of the seer on January 4.

Haji Abubakar Parkala, President of the Samiti says that the objective of these acts, apart from being a part of the festival is to promote harmony between communities.

The Samiti will organize a voluntary blood donation camp on the Sanskrit College premises here from 8.30 a.m. to 3 p.m. onJanuary 17.

The Samiti has given a  call to Muslim brethren to take part in the festival in large numbers.
