Jamaat donates new homes to Muzaffarnagar riot victims

New Delhi, 23 Feb: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind on Sunday donated 88 new homes to as many families whose homes were looted and torched during the Sep 2013 Muzaffarnagar riot and they had since been living in community-run make-shift relief camps. More than one hundred people were killed and thousands were rendered homeless during the riot.


At a ceremony at Parsoli area of Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday, Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari, Ameer (National President) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind inaugurated the newly constructed Falah-e Aam Colony and handed over keys of new homes to the riot victim families.


Jamaat had bought eight bighas of land and constructed 88 houses on it. Each house has cost Jamaat Rs 2.4 lakh. The colony also has a mosque, a community centre and a primary school.


“We are happy to get a home here, we are thankful to Jamaat,” said Tabassum, one of the beneficiaries standing outside her flat in the Falah-e Aam Colony. Tabassum, a native of Hasanpur village in Muzaffarnagar, has her husband and three young daughters.


Mohammad Qasim is another beneficiary. Originally from Lisarh village, he has also got a flat in Jamaat’s colony. “For the last two years since after the riot, we had been living in a make-shift relief camp. We had hoped that we will get a home from the government. We have got one from Jamaat. We have forgot our own home which was looted and torched by rioters,” said Qasim standing along with his family inside the Flat No. 3.


Addressing the program, Maulana Umari said: “Whenever a natural or man-made calamity has hit any area of the country, Jamaat has rushed to help the victims irrespective of their region or religion. We do it on humanitarian ground.”


He also said that Jamaat has constructed such colonies for riot victims in Gujarat and Assam also.


On the occasion, Jamaat also felicitated some Hindus who saved several Muslims during the Muzaffarnagar riot.


Besides him, many central leaders of the Jamaat, including Mohammad Ahmed, Shafi Madani and Maulana Rafeeq Qasmi and Maulana Mohammad Yusuf Islahi were also present on the occasion.


Western UP zone leaders of the Jamaat including Maulana Inamullah Islahi, zonal president and Mohammad Alauddin, relief in-charge of the zone were present at the event.


Eminent dignitaries from the area including Asad Ghalib, Chairman, Sardhana Nagarpalika and Rashid Ali, Chairman, Kerana Nagarpalika attended the program. They appreciated Jamaat’s initiative.
