New Delhi: Ta 'awun' (cooperation) Trust is engaged in relief and rehabilitation work for people in distress, affected by natural or man made disasters in different parts of the country . The Trust introduced on April 1 a mobile dispensary which will make rounds of slums and localities inhabited by poor sections of society to provide free medical treatment. The dispensary was flagged off by Jamia Millia Islamia's former registrar IH Khan in the presence of social workers and students and teachers of Jamia Millia. 

New Delhi: National Minorities Commission has made an appeal to religious leaders of different communities not to issue any political Fatwa during the elections. It was also decided in a meeting chaired by the Commission's president, Tralochan Singh to request all national and regional political parties not to use religion for political purposes. 

Aligarh: Students of Sir Ziauddin Hall of Aligarh Muslim University, protesting against sub-standard quality of meals being supplied to them, boycotted their lunch recently. On that particular day while taking lunch they felt that the quality of meals supplied to them was poor. The students forced their entry into the store and found heaps of stale and rotten vegetables laying there. 

New Delhi: National Council for the Promotion of Urdu Language (NCPUL) has decided to open 15 computer centres for ladies in different states of the country. Under the council's scheme of professional courses nearly 15000 students have so far acquired computer education and 70 percent of them are now employed but the number of girls among them is very small. The council is thinking of giving a monthly scholarships of Rs 250 each to girl students. Council's director, Dr Hamidullah Bhat said that 10 computer centres are already being run by the council all over the country in order to familiarise Urdu students with modern information technology in order to make them self-reliant. 

New Delhi: United Muslim of India organised on March 18 a discussion on 'to whom we should vote'. Presiding over the function Prof Abdul Haq said that they should vote for people who are men of character and principle, sincere and impartial and boycott people who spread communalism and hatred.

Chief guest, Dr Lal Bahadur who is national general secretary of Urdu Development Organisation speaking on the occasion said that the policy adopted by the present BJP-led government has resulted in increased unemployment. He said that communal organisations like RSS and its affiliates are challenging secular character of the country, spreading communal hatred but the NDA government is indifferent, rather it has supportive attitude to Sangh Parivar. It has emboldened them to spread their wings further. Anti-Muslims massacre continued for a full one year in Gujarat with overt and covert support of the state as well as central government. Under these circumstances it is necessary to vote out this government, he said.
Maulana Mahfoozur Rahman Usmani said in his speech that a review of the existing situation gives us the feeling that Congress can deliver the good and it should be given a chance.

UMI's general secretary, Delhi branch, Salik Dhampuri read out the following resolution which was unanimously passed: 'This meeting unanimously agrees that in order to defeat communalism and fascism it is necessary that in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections we should vote in favour of the candidates of Congress Party and its allies.' 

Deoband: Distinguished film director, Mahesh Bhat has completed his special documentary film on Darul Uloom, Deoband. Mahesh Bhat was himself to come for the shooting but he could not come due to some reasons. In his absence his assistant Ajay Kanchan completed the film during his two-day stay here.

Kanchan praised the publicity in charge of the institution, Adil Siddiqui who provided him with all the facilities and complete freedom for the shooting of the film. He had detailed discussions with the rector, Maulana Marghoobur Rahman, his deputy Maulana Abdul Khaliq, students, teachers and others to assess the true position of the institution. Kanchan said that the people must know the true position of the institution which played stellar role in the country's war of independence and strongly opposed the two-nation theory and partition of the country. 

Kanchan is of the view that Darul Uloom has not taken any step to familiarise the world with its stand, services and sacrifices. He said that the people of the institution are cut off from the national stream. Kanchan does not agree to Collin Powell's statement that madrasas are centres of terrorism. 

Aligarh : AMU's Centre for Women's Studies organised a discussion on Muslim Women on March 13. Speaking on the occasion, director of Jamia Millia Islamia's Sarojini Naidu Women's Studies Centre, Prof Hajra Kumar said that Muslim women are very backward in the field of education. This is the reason they are not self-reliant economically.

She said that Islam lays great emphasis on education but literacy among Muslim women is even less than Hindu backward communities. The education provided to them is traditional so the ratio of Muslim girls enrolling for professional courses is comparatively very small than other communities. Besides, there are no sufficient schools for them.

Vice chancellor Naseem Ahmad said in his presidential address that as compared to other Indian women in general, Muslim women are more backward. He said that voluntary efforts must be made to remove this backwardness. Non- governmental institutions can render better services in society in the fields of education and health, headded.

Hyderabad: The United Muslim Forum Andhra Pradesh (UMFAP) organised a state convention on March 21 at Shaheen Function Hall, Hyderabad. The forum, leaders of other Muslim organisations, scholars, social civil liberties activists, ulema and teachers closed ranks and appealed Muslims to vote against the communal parties.
The president of the forum, Maulana Hameeduddeen Aqil, All India Muslim Personal Law Board's secretary and vice president of the forum Abdur Raheem Qureshi, Basith Anwar of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Abdur Rahman Farooqui, city president of Ahle Hadees addressed a media conference and passed a resolution. 

The resolution said that secular democratic parties should come together and make electoral adjustments among themselves and field a single strong candidate with good character and public image against the candidate of BJP and its allies. The voters should come out in large numbers in favour of the candidates of secular parties, the resolution added. (
