Srinagar:  The relief committee of the Jamiatul-ul-Ulama-e-Hind has completed the construction of 650 houses for flood victims of Kashmir. Two hundred houses are ready for allotment. Out of these, 60 houses have been built for widows. The construction of 50 houses has been done in the poor Poshwari Bandipora, which was worst affected by the floods. Afterwards, 39 houses were constructed in Batmalu area. The Jamiat Relief Committee of Kashmir declared that, besides the houses, a cash amount of Rs. 23,50,000 was distributed among the unemployed youth to enable them  to start businesses. According to the committee, a sum of Rs. 10 crore has already been spent on the construction work. A meeting was organised in Batmalu area of Srinagar by the relief committee of JUH and Darul-Uloom Rahimiya in which, besides the flood-affected people, a large number of dignitaries of Srinagar participated. The meeting was presided over by the patron of the relief committee, Maulana Muhammad Hameedullah Rahmatullah Meer Rahimi, while the chief guest was JUH General Secretary, Maulana Syed Mahmood Madani. Addressing the meeting, Maulana Madani said that the number of houses built fell short of the need. Therefore, more houses would have to be built and the process would continue. He said that the well-wishers among the community had contributed to the construction of the houses and Allah made the Jamiat a medium through which the construction work could be carried out.
