New Delhi: The National Leadership of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has decided to launch relief work for Assam riot victims at large scale as the support from government is too meager. Jamaat has spent Rs 12 lakh on initial relief and medical aid of the victims but seeing the gravity of the situation and apathy of the government the Jamaat will launch major relief operations which will be monitored from the headquarters in Delhi.
“Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has spent Rs. 12 lakh as immediate aid through its on-going relief camps in the affected areas for providing urgent aid and relief to hundreds of thousands of Assam riots victims till date. Relief works are going-on continuously. As humanitarian crisis of food, drink, shelter and health of riots victims is looming large while government’s provision is too meagre to cope with it, Jamaat has decided to do relief work on a large scale,” said Jamaat in a statement on Thursday.
Jamaat is also providing medical and legal aid by forming various teams of doctors and advocates for victims.
Jamaat’s Secretary General Mr. Nusrat Ali said Jamaat has decided to execute relief and rehabilitation work on large scale directly from its headquarters. Mr. Mohammed Sahfi Madani, Jamaat’s all India secretary for social service, has been appointed as the in-charge of relief work in Assam. Mr. Madani visited Assam’s riots-affected areas and relief camps and will soon reach there again to organise and accelerate relief work.
Jamaat has appealed to all to extend their helping hand to help alleviate the sufferings of the oppressed people in Assam.
Mr. Shafi Madani may be contacted on his mobile number 09818996951.
