It seems all we have done over 12 years is simply not enough!

Dear Readers,

Assalamu ‘Alaikum!

Starting in January 2000, we have, alhamdulillah, come a long way. All praise to Almighty Allah, we are going to complete our twelfth year in just two months’ time, when cynics thought even a year would be too long for us to survive.

Although we enjoy the patronage of dedicated readers who patiently wait for each issue, who send their subscription renewals  in advance, who collect subscriptions for free on our behalf, who make all efforts including a journey to Delhi to get a lost copy... but it seems all that is not enough. In a hard world, we need a lot more to survive.

With minimal support from community businesses which do not use MG as a medium to reach out to customers, we find it impossible to carry on. Can you imagine that in the whole width and breadth of India and in a community boasting a population of 180 million, there is only one (Muslim) company which orders MG for all its board members? We need a lot more subscribers, a lot more advertisers in order to carry on... The losses are only piling up, month after month, year after year...

If some miracle doesn’t happen in the next few months — if readership and advertising do not increase, all pages of MG may look blank like this one [below is a replica of the print edition's cover page]. Join us in praying for that miracle to happen.
