CONDEMNABLE ATTEMPT TO
Hyderabad: Speaking at a seminar on "Islam and humanity" held in the 131-year old Jamia Nizamia of Hyderabad on August 4, Maulana Mufti Khalil Ahmad said that present day attempts against Islam and Muslims were not new, but they were being made for a long time. Attempt is being made to convince the world that Islam is a violent religion and Muslims are terrorists. He said it was a conspiracy of Jews and Christians.
Muhammad Abdul Majeed, head of the Department Arabic at Osmania University said that some people have made mischievous demands for tampering in the Qur’an and Hadiths after the 11/9 attacks which reflect their low mentality.
Dr Muhammad Sifullah of the Jamia Nizamia said with reference to the Qur’an that Muslims are sent in this world to spread peace and to provide shelter to others. He also said that if Islam would have spread by use of sword, Muslims would not have been in minority in India after ruling over it for hundreds of year. It was a Muslim son’s duty to obey his non-Muslim parent, he added.
Maulana Syed Ziauddin, a teacher of fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) said that Islam had emphasised on proper upbringing of children and it was due to lack of proper upbringing that millions of girls were giving birth to illicit children in USA and other western countries. The seminar was attended by various Islamic scholars.
TEACH URDU TO YOUR CHILDREN
Allahabad: Urdu Development Organisation, a UP based literary Organisation has appealed to Urdu speaking people to admit their children in schools which teach Urdu along with other subjects.

Bahrul Uloom, convenor of the organisation said that children should be admitted to English medium schools which teach Urdu and which are recognised by the ICSE and CBSE boards. These schools should teach Urdu as per rules and if Urdu is not taught there, people should make demand for it, he said.
DARK CLOUDS OVER TAJ MAHAL
Agra: Electricity of the Taj Mahal, which fetches foreign exchange worth crores of rupees to the country, has been cut off. The dispute as to who will pay Taj Mahal’s electricity bill took such a serious turn that the electric connection of the monument was cut off.
Strong lighting arrangements were made by the side of river Yamuan for safety of the Taj Mahal so as to keep a close watch on the activities, if any, going on in the fields and isolated places behind the Taj whose electricity bills were previously being paid by Agra Development Authority (ADA). But when it washed its hands, electricity was disconnected. Now it is darkness behind the Taj because of which its safety is in danger.
"KEEP AWAY MUSLIM SOCIETY FROM HYPORICY"
Khanpur: "Allah sent Prophet Muhammad as blessing for the entire humankind. We are heirs of his teachings. We should be a source of bliss for humanity. "These views were expressed by Maulana Asrarul Haque Qasmi, president of All India Talimi wa Milli Foundation during his 2 week-long visit to the riot ravaged state of Gujarat. Addressing a meeting at the Jama Masjid of Khanpur, Qasmi said that lakhs of Adiwasis and other backward and downtrodden people live in Gujarat. We should bring them close to Islam and give them equal treatment, he said. He further said Gujarat incidents were not of communal nature, but state-sponsored and organised plan to weaken Muslims economically and to root them out. The way Muslims were treated in the land from where Gandhiji had given the message of peace, has unveiled the face of the so-called Ram bhakts. Muslims should learn a lesson from this and they should be united, he said.
