HAJ OFFICE DEMANDED IN MAKKAH
New Delhi: Haji Reyaz, general secretary of Al-Haram Khadimul Hujjaj Committee has stated recently that it was impossible to provide facilities to Hajis without an office of the Haj Committee at Makkah, because Haj pilgrims are not provided any facilities by Haj Mission, Makkah and they have to pay repeated visits to the office of Haj Mission with their problems.
Meanwhile there have been demands from several organisations to start direct flights for Haj from Jaipur, Rajasthan. All these apart, Civil Aviation Minister Syed Shahnawaz Hussain said in an official statement on August 5 that over 6000 Haj pilgrims of Bihar will have direct flights either from Patna or Gaya this year.

Salaries and other facilities are not provided to madrasas as per the recommendations of 5th Commission, they added.

FREE BOOKS DEMANDED
FOR MUSLIM CHILDREN
Baghpat: Dr Atique Ahamd Siddiqui, president of Muslim Secular United Forum in a letter to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister has demanded free course books for Muslim school-going children as they belonged to both educationally and economically backward families. Children of Harijans are provided free books along with scholarships while Muslim children are being deprived of these facilities.

KAIFI’S BOOKS SENT TO ALLAHABAD
Azamgarh: "These books are the assets of our dignity and occasionally I have been bringing them to Mijwan." Progressive poet Kaifi Azmi used to tell this to his visitors while surrounded by books in Fateh Manzil. Over 3000 books of Azmi have been sent to Allahabad and Aligarh after his death this year. His actress daughter Shabana Azmi was also present in his native town Mijwan, falling under Phoolpur tehsil of Azamgarh to hand over the rare and valuable books. Prof. Asghar Abbas, director of Sir Syed Academy, Aligarh, Dr Tayyib Sajjad and Muhammad Yunus of Maulana Azad Library were already there to take delivery of the books. The villagers were sad that the books of the son of their own soil were being sent to other places instead of leaving them there.
During her earlier visit Shabana Azmi had assured that arrangements would be made to keep the books here, but it did not happen so, said Ziauddin Islahi, director of Shibli Academy.
JUSTICE DENIED TO MORADABAD VICTIMS
Moradabad: Several organisations paid rich tributes to the martyrs of Moradabad Idgah stampede and firing on August 13. A condolence meeting was held at Rain School under the chairmanship of Chaudhry Habibur Rahman Raini, district president of Samajwadi Party. Condolence meetings were also held by National Lok Tantrik Party, UP State Muslim League, Babri Masjid Action Committee and Indian Muslim League. Speakers expressed sorrow and disappointment over the delay in providing justice to the families of the victims. "The heirs have not been given any government jobs. Instead, Muslims are being framed under false charges", they said.
It may be recalled that a pig had entered the Idgah ground during Id prayers on August 13, 1980 which had caused great tension and hundreds of Muslims were martyred in firing by the police and Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC).
TDP’S LURING INITIATIVES TO MINORITIES
Hyderabad: Telugu Desam government has taken several steps to please the minorities. These steps include increase of grants of Urdu Academy, safety of waqf properties, aid for building and repair of mosques, irrigation, building of marriage halls and Urdu Bhavans in every district of Andhra Pradesh, introduction of Urdu computer courses, etc. When people read such news in newspapers, they feel happy and think that Telugu Desam government is taking several steps for the welfare and development of the minorities. But facts speak otherwise as more than 20 schemes of Urdu Academy have virtually been suspended. Schemes for promotion of Urdu have been slowly coming to an end but no government officer ever mentions them. The meager amount being granted by Urdu Academy to Urdu news agencies has been stopped. Chandrababu Naidu, the chief minister of AP never misses the opportunity to mention his feats of making Urdu the second official language of 11 districts of the state but he forgets that no service to Urdu could be of any use unless it is linked with employment and livelihood and that mere Urdu Bhavans and marriage halls cannot bring economic betterment of Muslims.
It is strange that there is no Urdu translator in the office of the chief minister, minister of waqf or even the Urdu Academy. The applications written in Urdu are thrown in the dustbin.
MUSLIMS SHOW INDIFFERENCE
TO ANTI-POLIO CAMPAIGN
Bijnor: Despite anti-polio campaigns, there has been great increase in the number of polio affected children at several places in Bijnor district of Uttar Pradesh. This was stated recently by a polio expert. Dr Vipin M Vishisht, north zone incharge of Indian Academy of Paedriatrics (IAP) has said that within 15 days in August, six new cases of polio have been noticed, while only three such cases were reported during the whole of last year. The specialist who along with a team of experts is treating polio affected children said that the situation was both explosive and dangerous.
There have been reports that some Muslim parents are opposed to administer polio medicines to their children which has put a question mark on the anti-polio drive. Some children died of polio stroke and some others have become handicapped for life. Their opposition is because of suspicion about these medicines. The negligence of the department of health is also said to be a major reason of failure in controlling the lethal disease.
BJP WANTS TO SUPPRESS MUSLIMS
Aligarh: Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid Delhi, Syed Ahmad Bukhari has said recently that BJP wants to subdue Muslims not only in Gujarat but in the entire country. He said that it cannot be tolerated for long. There is not the atmosphere of election in Gujarat but of fear and hatred and BJP wants to exploit the situation. Gujarat chief minister, Narendra Modi should be behind bars as he wants to root out Muslims throughout the country. If the country is divided once again, Sangh Parivar would be responsible for it, he said.
He strongly condemned the recent attacks on Amarnath Yatris saying that Islam did not allow killing of unarmed and innocent people.
