Hyderabad: All the women beggars and the topi wearing men are not Muslims. People from other states have rushed to Hyderabad since they think that the people of Hyderabad generously spend money in the form of zakat etc. during the month of Ramadan.
A lot of beggars belonging to labourers from other states who have come to the city for collecting money through begging.
The campaign started by GHMC for the eradication of beggary seems to be failing.
It is estimated that more than 4500 women beggars have come to the city from Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
All the beggars are not genuine and they don’t deserve any sympathy.
Many instances of fake beggars were posted on social media recently. They confessed that they are not the Muslims but in the guise of Muslims, they are begging.
It is the tradition of the people of Hyderabad that while offering money as charity, they don’t go by the religion of the beggars. They pour money into the hands of the destitute and handicapped persons irrespective of their caste or religion.
Police have also become alert. It is keeping an eye on such beggars to avoid any unpleasant incident.
