Guard against anti-social acts, says Kanthapuram

The Kerala Yathra of Kanthapuram A.P. Aboobacker Musliyar, styled “To awaken humanity” and organised by the Sunni organisations, was flagged off in the northern part of the state here on Thursday.

The Samastha Kerala Jamiyyathul Ulama President Abdurrahman Al Bukhari handed over the flag to Kanthapuram.

Union minister of state for food and civil supplies K.V. Thomas inaugurated the Yatra. Sunni education board president MA Abdul Khader Musliyar presided over the function.

Kanthapuram demanded that the government initiated programmes and policies to counter the menace posed by anti-social elements in the society. Believers should try to align with secular forces to face communalism squarely, and guard against its social and political implications.

K.V. Thomas said the religious organisations’ role in the process of social development was crucial. He appreciated the activities of Kanthapuram, which he said, helped many people who lived in the margins of the society to come to the mainstream of the society.

The march was received at a special gathering in Kasargod town, Kanhangad and other centers of the district. The 17-day Yathra would pass through 700 panchayats and culminate at the Chandrashekaran Nair Stadium in the capital on April 28.
