|POLICE RAID ON PHULAT MADRASA CREATES UNREST
Meerut/Kerana: Police raided the famous Madrasa Jamia Al-Imam Waliulla Darul Uloom Rahimia of Phulat, district Muzaffar Nagar on 18 April. This raid created a wave of anger against the police and the government of Mulayam Singh Yadav. Describing Islamic madrasas as the backbone of Islamic faith, Mufti Mohammad Sharafat said that this raid has been carried out under a planned conspiracy and warned that such raids will never be tolerated. All India Milli Council has strongly condemned this raid and demanded UP government to take strong action against the irresponsible police officers and to ensure that such things are not repeated in future.
Maulana A M Gulzar Qasmi said that Phulat is the place of birth of Shah Waliullah, who launched a battle for India’s freedom and whose academic services are viewed with great respect in the subcontinent. The institute named after Shah Waliullah has always been supportive to government and it is doing a great service to the nation and community. The police raid under a government, founded on secular values is regrettable, he said and added that this will create problems regarding safety of minorities.
HOSPITALS TAKE OVER HOTELS
Hyderabad: Which institution is more profit-making - hotel or hospital? Hyderabad has different story to tell you. Some of star-hotels have been turned into star-hospitals. These hotels have enough infrastructures to convert into hospitals. You need to have an estimated Rs 7 crore or more to convert it into a super-specialty hospital than to set up a new one that would cost upto Rs 40 crore.
Here are names of hotels that are providing health services — The Deccan Continental Hotel to Krishna Institute of Medical sciences; Sarovar Hotel to Medicity Hospital; Sampoorna Hotel is serving as Nampally Care Hospital; and now there is CDR Hospital in place of President Hotel.
But for a hospital, especially of this kind, they take care of intensive quality control like, cleanliness, sanitation, sterile environment and infection-free fresh air, etc.
