Hyderabad: Dr. Shakeel Ahmed Samdani, Professor of Law of Aligarh Muslim University and Member, All India Muslim Personal Law Board while delivering a speech at Du-ba-Du program told that so far, it was thought that Siasat is only a daily newspaper but later, it came to be known that it is performing educational, social and welfare activities successfully. He also told that it is an honour for him to participate in such a program. He promised that he would publicize this campaign in the entire country. He expressed great concern that performing marriage is becoming a major issue despite it being a simpler task in Islam. This campaign is a model for those who have determined to work in the field of Muslim social welfare.
He was addressing Du-ba-Du program organized by Siasat Urdu Daily at SA Imperial Garden Tollichowki, Hyderabad. He applauded the efforts of Mr. Zahid Ali Khan, Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily and Mr. Zaheeruddin Ali Khan, Managing Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily and congratulated them. He also told that in certain states of the country, Muslims are living in a poor condition. They do not have sufficient food to eat and adequate house to live in. In such a situation, how can the parents of the girl find suitable matrimonial alliances and fulfill the dowry demands of the relatives of the boys.
If the campaign of Siasat and Millat Fund is spread in every nook and corner of the country, awareness could be created and planning could be formulated. He expressed the concern that in Bihar, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, UP and other states, there is a lot of poverty. In these areas, the Muslims perform their marriages in a simpler way following Islamic tenets.
Mr. Zaheeruddin Ali Khan who monitored the program, highlighted its details. He contacted many parents and guardians.
Dr. Shaikh Siyadat Ali impressed upon the parents to instruct their children to lead life in the light of Quran and Sunnah. Only those communities which followed the tenets of Islam, led successful life. He pointed out that while seeing the girl for finalizing matrimonial alliances, the mistakes committed by our community are creating a bad impression on others.
Mr. Mohammed Moinuddin, President, Federation of Tolichowki Colonies, Mr. Meer Anwaruddin, Dr. Mohammed Ayub Haideri, Dr. Nazim Ali and others were present in the function. The registration started at 11 a.m. In all, 150 girls and 100 boys registered their names for matrimonial alliances.
The viewers from various countries watched the program live on Siasat Facebook, Youtube and TV.
Mr. Syed Khalid Mohiuddin Asad, Coordinator of the program provided guidance to parents and guardians and thanked the owners of Imperial Garden Function Hall.
