Tamil Nadu CM’s gesture to mosques in Ramadan

Chennai: Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalita had decided, in view of the forthcoming holy month of Ramadan, and ordered to distribute 4,600 tonnes of rice among approximately three thousand mosques. Needless to say that this quantity of rice will be distributed free to mosques. During her first term as chief minster of the state in 2001 this scheme of free distribution of rice was started by her which was greatly welcomed by the Muslim community of the state. She said that the community had requested her to continue this scheme in future also. Accordingly this year also she has ordered free distribution of rice to mosques.
