Health of Muslims
|The health of Indian Muslims is an
important problem. In this connection Peoples Contact Committee of UP is
trying to create health consciousness among Muslims along with education.
But we Muslims pine for delicious food. According to someone, Muslims love
delicacies even at the cost of life.
Along with diseases as a result of polluted water, those because of
unhygienic and unhealthy food, specially meat, are also on the rise. Liver
ailments, gall bladder stones, kidney stones, tuberculosis and other lungs
diseases, mental disorder epileptic fits etc are all caused by meat.
Butchers slaughter sick and diseased animals which are eaten by poor
Muslims resulting in different kinds of diseases. In Europe and Africa
hundreds of thousands of animals suffering from 'foot and mouth' diseases
were got killed and burnt by public Health Departments of those countries
and sale of their meat was banned. This disease has now gripped many
animals in India also and these animals suffering from 'mouth and hooves'
diseases are commonly seen in butchers localities and slaughter houses.
But the health departments of our municipal corporations are conniving at
the slaughter of such diseased animals by taking bribes and Muslims are
becoming victims of many diseases. Hotels and eateries are greatly adding
to these diseases by cooking and selling 'neharis', 'tahiris', 'siri-paye'
Will the Muslim leadership pay attention to this and make demand to
central and state governments to ban the slaughter of such diseased and
harmful animals? (Saharanpur Advocate Anwar Aliís letter to Qaumi Awaz)
