Kerala: Muslim committee boycotts family for marrying daughter to Christian

Malappurram: A mosque committee in Kerala’s Malappurram, district called for boycott of a Muslim family after they married off their daughter in a Christian family.

On October 19, the secretary of the Madarul Islam Sangham’s Mahallu committee (the mosque’s administrative committee) issued a special circular urging all people connected with the mosque to break off all contact with Kunnummal Yusuf and his family who had married off his daughter Jaseela to Tiso Tomy.

A circular printed in Malayalam read, “Since Kunnummal Yusuf has agreed to his daughter’s wedding to a non-Muslim, we have decided that people need not cooperate with his family, neither for mosque-related affairs, nor for other matters.”

The couple got married at a local office of the state registration department on October 19.
