Udupi: It was a true symbol of religious unity as Udupi District Muslim Paryaya Souharda Samiti organised a massive blood donation camp on the SMSP Sanskrit College premises on Sunday, as part of the historic Paryaya festival.

Inaugurating the camp, Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Pejawar Mutt said that the bond between the Hindu and Muslim communities should become stronger and the event was an example for the entire nation.

The camp was organised as a token of love from Muslim community for Pejawar seer and earlier the members of the District Muslim Paryaya Souharda Samiti had supplied buttermilk to his devotees on his “Pura Pravesha” (entry to the city) on January 4.

The samiti had also donated food grains and vegetables as “horekanike” a few days ago.

He recalled that his preceptor’s guru, that is his guru’s guru, Vishwajna Tirtha, had accepted ‘horekanike’ from the philanthropist Haji Abdullah Saheb, also the founder of Corporation Bank, during his Paryaya in 1904.

Haji Abubakar Parkala, president of the samiti, Mohammed Arif, secretary, and others were present.
