Kochi: 08 May 2018
A mosque management in Kerala is winning hearts all over for its decision to host parents who accompanied students, several from Tamil Nadu, to exam centres for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET).
Management of Vadi Hira Masjid at Aluva near Kochi decided to open its doors to parents, including women, and made the necessary arrangements for them to get rest while their children wrote the exam.
“Unlike last year, we were all prepared to receive the people who come for the entrance exam,” Raoof wrote on Facebook.
“Apart from the mosque we could also accommodate people at nearby houses and shops as well,” he said, adding youth from the villages of Malayam Kadu, Keeran Kunnu and Ajantha actively took part to help out.
CBSE conducted NEET examination on Sunday for more than 1.3 million students across the country. Only students from Tamil Nadu were allotted centres in different states. While most were made to write the exam in Kerala, some were given centres in Rajasthan and Sikkim too.
