Fruitful utilization of resources
By Seraj Paracha

In every big city of India where there is Muslim population, hundreds of thousands of animals are slaughtered for sacrifice every year and very large part of this capital worth crores of rupees is wasted just for nothing. It is difficult to understand as to why we do not pay attention towards this when we have got brilliant examples before us. Do we have shortage of experts? Or we are not interested in doing positive works? All our activities and interests are centred around finding fault with others. Shall we continue to see our resources going waste without being put to proper use? How long will our sentimental, capable and dynamic people shirk their responsibilities? Muslims of India greatly need positive activities now. If we still do not perform our duties in right earnest and fulfill our responsibilities, neither history nor our coming generations will remember us with respect and pride.

Can we not set up slaughter houses for sacrificial animals on the lines of Islamic Bank? Of course, certainly we can do that. We are not short of experts and experienced people in every field. If at all we are lacking in any thing, it is institutions. The need for us is to assemble at a place and prepare a positive action plan. The work in this direction can be initiated in Delhi because there are people experienced in this work here. Also, there are areas near by where land and animals can be made available easily. Moreover, there is no dearth of active youths who can make rounds in lanes, by lanes and mohallas and induce people for collective slaughtering of sacrificial animals. We must admit that this work is no doubt difficult but not impossible. When we call upon these youngmen for protest meetings or demonstrations, they fully cooperate. Why then canít we have their cooperation for such constructive works?

Once we decide that we have to take active interest in this work, other details can be worked out by mutual consultations. It is not possible to write about every thing in detail but it should be understood briefly that out of various scattered and unexploited resources, the arrangement for sacrifices should be brought under a centralized or collective system so that the requirements of the community should be fulfilled as much as possible. Sacrificial meat should be made available to the deserving people. The income derived from sale of animalsí hides, blood, intestines, bones etc, should be used for arrangement of modern education, technical training and welfare schemes in religious madrasas, orphanages etc. Students of schools and colleges of high standard should be assisted and encouraged for appearing in competitive examinations for civil, administrative and other high class posts. The slaughter houses thus established will be a permanent source of income. The youngmen visiting each house for collection of funds for collective sacrifices and distributing sacrificial meat can also fulfill the need for providing local leadership which isvery much lacking in our community. After all we have to take the initiative for creating such a system somewhere on an experimental basis. Together with resources, we have also to stand up on strong and solid foundations. If we succeed in utilizing any one of our various resources in fruitful and beneficial manner, the entire nation will stand up to cooperate with us with religious zeal in utilizing other resources for such constructive works.
