With Kerala still battling the fury of the flood raging across the state, people are lending a helping hand to one another be it in the form of monetary aid or opening homes to the flood-hit victims.
Among the row of many noble gestures the ravaged state witnessed a true example of communal harmony.
Cutting across all religious and communal divides, workers of Wiqaya were seen taking initiatives in the massive clean-up process of a temple. A dedicated team of Muslim students in the state volunteered to clean the Ayyappa temple at Kolpadam near Mannarkkad in Palakkad district.
“We have a dedicated 17-member team called Wiqaya who are all set to do any volunteer work to help the needy. They have been indulging in rescue and relief work across the state during the floods,” said Habeeb Faizy Kottopadam, who headed the relief work in Palakkad district.
In another heart touching tale of secularism winning over the devastating natural calamity, a temple in Thrissur district opened its door for Muslims to offer Namaz after the area mosque got submerged in floods.
The Muslims in the area were looking for a place to conduct prayers Authorities of Purappillikkav Rakteswari temple allowed a hall attached to it be converted into the venue for Muslims to offer prayers.
