Kasargod, Feb 18, 2020: A marriage held at the Mannyot Temple at Kanhangad was a display of exemplary communal harmony. It was the wedding of a Hindu orphan girl who was brought up by a Muslim couple from Melparamba. The 22 year old girl Rajeshwari, foster daughter of K Abdulla-Khadeeja couple, was given in marriage to Vishnuprasad of Kanhangad Pudiya Kota. The wedding was attended by several relatives, friends and well-wishers from both sides.
Rajeshwari had first arrived at Abdulla’s house 12 years ago with a nomadic woman. On coming to know that she was an orphan, the Abdulla couple decided to take care of her along with their three other children. The couple has now won the hearts of many by even conducting the marriage of Rajeshwari.
