Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan on Thursday delivered the memorial lecture at the Maniyeri Madhavan commemoration meet.
The function was organised by the Maniyeri Madhavan Smaraka Samiti (MMSS) on the tenth death anniversary of Maniyeri Madhavan, founder editor of the Sudinam daily.
Coming down heavily on those trying to spoil the peaceful atmosphere in the State, Mr. Radhakrishnan said that such acts amounted to challenging the history itself, which was bound to be questioned in the years to come. K.M. Ibrahim, president, MMSS, presided over the function.
The Maniyeri Madhavan memorial awards were presented to the Shanthideepam School for the differentially abled at Chala, Aththani at Ayikkara, and the Daivadaan centre at Kolayad. Social worker K.G. Babu and home guard T.V. Madhavan were felicitated at the ceremony.
