Speaking at the ‘Sarva Dharma Id Acharne’ (All Communities’ Id celebrations) organised at the auditorium located in the Mother of Sorrows Church complex, Udupi.  The function was organised by Souharda Samiti, Catholic Sabha, Mother of Sorrows Church and Lions Club.

The Shiroor seer said that the Muslim community should do self searching and thinking and try to avoid the slaughtering of cows. He spoke of a connection between the Muslim community and the Sri Krishna Mutt/Temple. The philanthropist, late Haji Abdullah (1882-1935) used to provide oil and rice to the Sri Krishna Mutt/Temple here whenever it was needed. There was a time when all communities lived in harmony as part of the same society. However, owing to politicians, the relations between the communities had become strained. It was essential that all communities live together. Udupi district should become a model for the country, the seer said.

Rev. Gerald Isaac Lobo, Bishop of Udupi Diocese, who presided over the function, said Eid  upheld human values. It also emphasized on donation. India was a multicultural country. It was essential that everyone lived in harmony with one another, he added.

Maulana Abdul Rehman Razvi Kalkata, vice-president of District Wakf Board, Noel Prashanth Karkada, pastor, St. Paul CSI Church, and others were present.

The slaughter of cows is one of the worst thing which disturbs the mind of the Hindus . We cannot force anyone 5to follow our rules . They have to understand the fact and surrender giving up consuming beef
