MALAPPURAM: A masjid committee in Kerala’s Malappuram has called for boycotting a Muslim man and his family for allowing his daughter to marry a Christian man.
On October 19, the Madarul Islam Sangham’s Mahallu committee issued a notification asking everyone connected with the mosque to boycott with Kunnummal Yusuf and his family.
"As Kunnummal Yusuf has allowed his daughter marry a non-Muslim, we have decided that people (members) should not cooperate with the family, either for mosque-related affairs or for any other matters," states the circular in Malayalam.
A day later, Yousuf's daughter Jaseela married Tiso Tomy, a Christian from Nilambur in Malappuram.
Now here comes the interesting part.
Several members of the mosque decided to openly defy the boycott notification.
The family threw a reception in Perinthalmanna, which was attended by hundreds.
The development comes amid Kerala High Court stating that not all inter-religious marriages can be called “Love Jihad”. The court further said that these kind of marriages should be encouraged as there is no boundary for love.
