Hyderabad: 88th Du-ba-Du program was organized by Millat Fund and Siasat Urdu Daily at Royal Regency Function Hall on Sunday, 21st October.

A large number of parents and guardians of boys and girls to be married attended the program. They contacted each other and introduced themselves. There is every possibility that marriage alliances will be settled amicably.

Most of the parents and guardians had the opinion that due to dowry demands, most of the girls remained unmarried.

Addressing the gathering, Mr. Mohammed Tajuddin, Dy. Director (Investigation) of Lok Ayukta stressed the need for the parents and guardians to create awareness for eradicating dowry system. He further told that if no awareness is created, the married couple will not be able to lead a peaceful life. Taking into consideration this aspect, Siasat and Millat Fund have constituted a pre-marriage counselling center. It will help the boys and girls to lead a pleasant matrimonial life following Islamic principles.

Noted Jurists and Islamic Scholars will provide guidance to the boys and girls to be married.

Dr. Shaikh Siyadath Ali told that the Muslims are prosperous due to foreign jobs but these days, these opportunities are shrinking. If the Muslims unite together following the principles of Islam, many problems in matrimonial matters could be resolved.
