PAK CHILD’S SUCCESSFUL HEART OPERATION
New Delhi: When it comes to restoration of friendly relations between India and Pakistan, Kashmir is always a problem. But the decision of India to allow Pakistani citizens the facility of treatment and even free treatment of critical heart problems is relieving to them.
This began with the successful operation of Noor Fatima, known to Indians as Baby Noor. That was a year ago. This time it was the seven-year-old Qurratul Ain who was successfully operated upon with the help of a modern technique without using anesthesia. It was a miraculous operation. The heart which was by birth on her right side was transplanted to the left side through balooning process, a revolutionary scietific technique in the field of blood circulation. Belonging to Karachi in Pakistan, Qurrat’s operation was done at The Heart Centre, situated in Lajpat Nagar in South Delhi. After the operation, the noted surgeon, Dr M Khalilullah of the centre said the child is now OK. He said it was a difficult operation. The parents of the child said they tried at various hospitals in countries from India to America but doctors failed to understand what technique should be used. Now they must be happy. After all, they have got a hearty response from India.
IRAN TO PROTECT QUTUB SHAHI MONUMENTS
Hyderabad: Consul general, Islamic Republic of Iran, Hussain Rawash has said India and Iran have centuries-old relationships. Iranians did not come to India to rule over it. They have made great contribution to the art and culture of this country.
Mr Rawash was speaking on the occasion of Quli Qutub Shah Day, organised by Idara Adabiyat-e-Urdu. During the days of Qutab Shah in Hyderabad, Iranian culture and civilisation penetrated in Indian culture. After founding Hyderabad city, Qutub Shah constructed the grand building of Charminar, which stands on four pillars and which is based on the architectural style of the city of Isfahan in Iran, he said. Rawash said Iranian government would take the responsibility for protection of Qutub Shahi tombs and cultural delegates of Iran would participate in the 45th anniversary of Idara Adabiyat-e-Urdu.
Presiding over the meeting, Ibrahim bin Abdullah Masqati, chairman of A. P. Urdu Academy said though Qutab Shah was an Iranian, the way he ruled in India in a strange and new atmosphere, is worth emulation by today’s rulers. Zahid Ali Khan, president of Idara Adabiyat and editor of Urdu daily Siyasat was among the speakers.

According to sources, Mumtaz Ali Shaikh had strictly forbidden his wife to administer polio drop to the child.
