|DOWNFALL OF UNANI SYSTEM OF MEDICINE
Allahabad: There was a time when people would go to Hakims for treatment and it was considered a matter of pride for people to avail their services. Hakims used to treat emperors and had approach even to Indian President. The rise of Tabibs
(Unani physicians) happened during the British regime. Though Britishers believed in allopathic treatment, tabibs and hakims earned a respectful place by treating major illness which surprised allopathic doctors.
The time has changed. Now products of Uanani and Tibbiya colleges hesitate to call themselves as hakims and they like to prefix doctor with their name. The few hakims who are left have given up their herbal treatment and are now using patented medicines so that people could avoid boiling and sifting them. Even then this branch of Unani system of medicine is fast declining. However, there is still a ray of hope as there are few hakims who have still kept the system alive. Hakim Sa’d Usmani of Allahabad is the centre of attention for the hopeless patients who come to him after knocking the door of almost every famous doctor of the city.
VARSITY STATUS DEMANDED FOR MADRASA ALIYA
Rampur: In a bid to please Muslims and woo them to his party, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Rajnath Singh had made an announcement on June 12, 2001 to give Rs 1 crore to Madrasa Aliya to upgrade it into an Arabic university. The state government had also asked the authorities to submit some documents and the syllabus of the madrasa which were sent to government on September 6, 2001. The UP governor had also formed a 13-member committee to set up the Arabic university. The committee had also convened two meetings in Lucknow on February 2 and 16, 2002 in which it had decided that the Arabic university would be set up in Madrasa Aliya (Government Orient College). But later the matter was put in cold storage.
Qari Muhammad Rashid Mujaddidi, principal of Madrasa Aliya has now drawn the attention of chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav and cabinet minister Muhammad Azam Khan to this and said that it would be better if the university is set up before he retires.
54 COUPLES TIE NUPTIAL KNOTS
Jaipur: In a joint marriage function organised by All India Rangrezan (dyers) Association, 54 couples tied nuptial knots. Spokesman of the Marraige Committee, Rasheed Chaudhary said that thousands of people attended the matrimonial ceremony and no superfluous ritual or expenditure was effected.
MUSLIMS’ GENEROSITY TO NON-MUSLIM COLLEAGUES
Patna: In yet another example of communal harmony Muslim employees of Bihar refused to take advance salaries on the occasion of
Eid. They said this will deprive their colleagues and co-brethren of their rights.
It should be noted that Bihar government had earlier refused to give advance salaries to Hindu government employees on the occasion of a religious festival. Chief minister Rabri Devi and chief secretary KAH Subramanyam received many letters in which Muslims have flatly refused to take advance salaries. These letters have a common argument that if Hindus and other communities do not get these facilities, Muslims too are not ready for this discriminatory offer.
HC ORDER ON BIBI KA MAQBARA
Aurangabad: Ahmedabad bench of Mumbai High Court has issued an order to remove brick-kilns constructed around Bibi Ka
Maqbara, a replica of the historic Taj Mahal. Justice FI Nebelu and Justice NV Dabholkar pronounced the judgement over a petition filed by Sukhdev
Shilke, president of Progressive Lawyers Association. The court has ordered the Aurangabad tehsildar and Corporation that no kiln should be constructed within a radius of five kilo metres from the monument. Two more petitions are
sub-judice about the monument, known as the Taj Mahal of South. One of them has been filed by historian DRS Morvayechekar and the other by Ibrahim Pathos in which a request has been made to ensure safety of 52 historical gates including that of the Bibi Ka
Maqbara. Another petition has been filed by Amit Khot who has demanded complete security arrangement for the maqbara and also to stop all illegal constructions around it. The court, after Khot’s petition, has asked the Archaelogical Survey of India to submit an affidavit regarding action taken or being taken for removal of illegal constructions near the monument. The next hearing was after two weeks.
HUMAN SYMPATHY BINDS PEOPLE TOGETHER
Partapgarh: Talking to some media persons here at Bahrupur village Maulana Rabe Hasani
Nadwi, president of All India Muslim Personal Law Board said people in India have been living with human sympathy and they behave with love. But this human sympathy has been declining and if there is any fight today it is the fight for selfishness, he said. Our leaders should do things which generate feelings of humanity. No one is anyone’s enemy and the fight is for selfishness and power, Mualana Rabe said. He added that three major battles were fought in Europe and all among the followers of one religion. Europe was devastated but later Europeans became aware of their loss. Today they are united because of their awareness, he said. Meanwhile, speaking at a
madrasa, Maulana Rabe said these madrasas are forts of Islam. They provide religious and modern education and sciences to better the lives of students here and in the Hereafter. Muslims should provide every assistance to
madrasas, the Maulana said.
NO ALTERNATIVE TO MODERN EDUCATION
Nogawan Sadat: Maulana Kalbe Sadiq, vice-president of All India Muslim Personal Law Board has said there is no better alternative than modern sciences for development and prosperity of Muslims. He was speaking at the first death anniversary of orator and noted Shia scholar Maulana Firoz
Haider. Maulana Kalbe Sadiq said that Muslims today are blamed to be responsible for all the troubles everywhere in the world and the most regrettable aspect of it is that our religious leaders are silent spectators. He quoted Hazrat
Ali, the fourth caliph of Islam , “I have an aversion to two types of persons: a dishonest and a fool.” He said that those who hatch conspiracies against Muslims can be defeated only by education. And that education should be based on modern science and technology, he said. Paying tributes to Maulana Firoz Haider
Abidi, Maulana Sadiq said Firoz Haider needs no introduction. People who have heard his speeches are aware of his qualities and greatness.
UMI CELEBRATES URDU DAY
New Delhi: United Muslim of India (UMI) celebrated Urdu Day on November 9. Important and respectable personalities of Delhi participated in this function.
Prof. Abdul Haq, in his presidential address, said that the abundance with which Muslim sentiments and ethos are found in Iqbal’s poetry are not found in any other poet. There may hardly be any Urdu or Persian poet who has played such an important role in the regeneration of his community and nation as has been done by
Iqbal, the Poet of the East through his poetry and couplets. That is the reason why, if, he is disliked by some people. There are others who feel proud in associating him with themselves. He said that by deciding to observe his birth day as ‘Urdu Day’, UMI has done a good thing for which all of us should cooperate.
