News Tech: In a praiseworthy move, a mahal (mosque) committee in a village in this northern Kerala district has decided to expel or sideline members of their community who are involved in drug-related activities.

A member of the committee told a TV channel that those who are part of their mosque if found to be involved in drug-related activities, would be removed or sidelined from the mahal committee.

The bold decision by the Padannakkad jamaat committee has been welcomed by the police with a senior officer meeting them to extend support to the model initiative.

They would not be allowed to return till the committee is convinced that they have rectified their mistake, the member said.

Others would also stop interacting with them, he added.

The officer said that there were several other such committees in the area, but they were scared of taking such a step fearing a backlash. However, they now might be encouraged to follow in the footsteps of the Padannakkad jamaat committee, he said.

He also said the Padannakkad jamaat committee will have the full support of the police. (This story has not been edited by Our Editor Team and is generated from a Feed.)
