Relief to be sent to Afghan refugees

A People’s Committee for the Relief of Afghan Refugees has been formed in Delhi by some leading socio-political and human rights activists. It was announced in a press release issued by the committee on 19 November. The committee aims to send essentials to Afghan refugees in camps set up to rehabilitate people of the war ravaged country.

In a meeting organized on 19 November a number of leading social, political and human rights activists assembled to form the Peoples Committee for the Relief of Afghan Refugees that will be headed by renowned Gandhian and former MP Nirmala Deshpande. The committee decided to collect essential relief items like medicines, blankets, milk and other essentials and send it to refugee camps at the earliest. The committee believes that it will be a right move and will show Indian people’s concern for their Afghan brothers who are in immediate need of relief. Nirmala Deshpande who was selected as the president of the committee said that the committee’s efforts would be to rush right relief material to the most needy as early as possible, preferably by going to the camps directly. She appealed to the people to donate generously to rush the relief to the Afghan refugees in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan before the auspicious occasion of Eid as it will be a gesture of solidarity with the distressed people of Afghanistan from the people of India. Navaid Hamid who has been selected as the organisation’s secretary, said that the gesture is important because Indian people have always maintained very cordial relationship with the people of Afghanistan for a long time. The Afghans had also fully supported Indian freedom struggle and the first Indian government-in-exile was formed in Afghanistan. Hamid added that even Subhash Chandra Bose, the legendary freedom fighter, first migrated to Afghanistan and formed his Indian National Army.

The committee includes people from various walks of life like Prof. Amrik Singh, Chturanan Mishra, MM Khan, Dr Rafiq Zakaria, Medha Patkar, Saiyid Hamid, Syed Shahabuddin, Maulana Shafi Moonis, M Afzal, ND Pancholi and Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan.

The committee may be contacted at 12 Meena Bagh, Maulana Azad Road, New Delhi-11. Secretary tel.:(+9111) 3261369. q
