Muslim members donate foodgrains, vegetables for Paryaya preparations

The members of the Samastha Muslim Sauharda Samithi took out a Horekanike procession from Jodu Katte to the Rajangana parking space in Udupi on Friday on account of Paryaya preparations.

Vidyadheesha Teertha Swami of the Palimar Mutt will be ascending the Paryaya Peetha at the 800-year-old Sri Krishna Mutt on January 18.

The Samithi will also organise a voluntary blood donation camp on January 16.

About 30 vehicles carrying fruits, vegetables and food items were taken out in a procession and later shifted to a store room "Ugrana" at the Rajangana parking space.

Samithi general secretary Ansar Ahmmed said, "The Horekanike was held during the Paryaya of Vishwesha Theertha Swami. The tradition has been continued. It will also help in fostering communal harmony. The Horekanike will be offered during the next Paryaya as well."

Samithi president K Aboobakkar Parkala said that the Samithi had distributed fruit juice to 5,000 persons during the Purapravesha of the seer.

Vijaya Bank employees handed over a sum of Rs 1,93,411 to Palimar Mutt seer Vidyadheesha Teertha Swami on the occasion. The villagers from Baikadi, Herooru, Kokkarne, Barkur, Cherkadi too handed over Horekanike.
