: A ‘Souhruda Kootayma' aimed at fostering values of brotherhood, peace and prosperity will be hosted at the Hira Masjid grounds here on Tuesday.

Kanhangad MLA E. Chandrasekharan will inaugurate the meet at 4 p.m. District Collector K.N. Satheesh will be the Chief Guest, said Mohammed Aslam, an

office-bearer of the Friday Club, which is hosting the programme.

The meet assumes significance in the wake of recent violent incidents that triggered communal tension besides crippling normal life for days in the otherwise peaceful commercial hub of Kasaragod district.

The function is expected to be attended by leaders of political parties besides people from various walks of life, Mr. Aslam said.
