SIO also demanded that 27% OBC reservation must not be implemented in Jamia Millia Islamia, since it is a minority institute from its very beginning.

AMU must re-open urgently: SIO


AMU must re-open urgently: SIO

New Delhi: 7/11/09: Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO) National Secretariat expressed deep condolences over the murder of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) student Shahnawaz Alam on 25th October and expressed concern over the increasing unrest in the campus. SIO demanded that there must be high level investigation of this murder with three months deadline. The university must re-open with immediate effect. SIO is ready to help the authorities to bring peace and tranquility in campus. Closure of the University will certainly affect the academic performance of university and also the upcoming semester examinations in medical and engineering faculties. It is quiet unfortunate that the issue of demand of resignation of VC has been mixed-up with the murder incident outside campus and was used to perpetrate violence, assault varsity officials and to disrupt academic activities.

SIO strongly demands that the real problems of the university must be identified and solved amicably with democratic procedures and discipline. It is a fact that more than quarter of the teaching staffs in University is not doing their job promptly. The laws which are present which makes it obligatory for all teachers to be present in the campus from 8am to 4:00pm are not being followed. Even the system to register attendance of teachers does not exist in the university. SIO also demands that all reforms must be made democratically and not in an autocratic style. The democratic rights of students to work in campus and to form students union must be allowed. Suhail K.K, National president, SIO spoke on the occasion.

Relief work at:IOC FIRE INCIDENT


At about 7:37 pm on Thursday, the 3rd November 2009, panic gripped the city of Jaipur, when the oil tanks of the Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) terminal at Sitapura Industrial area, began to blow one after another. Massive fire broke out within moments and spread to the nearby factories. More than 200 people were injured and rushed to the nearby Mahatma Gandhi and Star hospitals and to the Sawai Maan Sing and other hospitals of the city. Till late night, only three people were declared dead, while the locals insisted that there must be more than a hundred people inside the oil depot, who are still missing.

Total 12 tanks containing 7000 kiloliters of petrol, 24000 kiloliters of diesel and 1000 kiloliters of kerosene, blew one after other in three days. The traffic was stopped all around within 25 km of the place of incident. Adjacent villages and colonies within 5 km were evacuated and the police surrounded the entire area. The 25 mm thick oil tanks melted and collapsed like thin tin containers, then melted away like wax in more than 1500 ok temperature. The inferno rose so high that it was visible from more than 5 kilometers away. The death toll according to the official reports was 12 in total, while the local residents were sure that it must be far more than stated.
However Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) was on the go after receiving first information. A team visited the SMS Hospital under the leadership of State President Engineer Muhammad Saleem. There was a number of injured being brought from the site of incident. Jamaat’s team helped them in many ways. Meanwhile, another team of Jamaat’s volunteers headed towards the IOC depot where they found many people fleeing in search of safety. While the injured were being carried away to the hospitals by ambulances and some public volunteers, they chose to carry people to safer places. Many a people had no choice where to go, hence they were brought to Pratap Nagar where Jamaat opened a camp, with the help of a local Human Development Society, for these displaced people, most of whom were laborers working in the nearby factories.
First night, 70 people stayed in the camp where they were provided with food along with shelter and medical assistance to the ill. A combined delegation of JIH Rajasthan and Human Development Society, comprising Rajasthan State President of Jamaat Engineer Muhammad Saleem , Muhammad Nazimuddeen, Dr. Muhammad Iqbal, Human Development Society President Shamsuddeen, Er. Rashid Husain, Iftikhar Ahmad, Hafiz Jamshed Ali and Nafees Ahmad, visited the site of incident and the adjacent colonies and convinced the people who were leaving their houses for safer places to hold and remain in their houses till the administrative authorities tell them to do so. Mr. Saleem, in his statement given to a TV channel, appealed people not to give in to the hoaxes and rumors, as the miscreants and thieves might take the advantage of vacant houses. The third day news of prevalent thefts added to the misery of the people fled after fire.

Second day, about 200 people came to the camp after announcement in Jumaa prayer. Third day this number was about 300 which grew to 350 the fourth day. People took shelter in the camp till morning of the sixth day. On Tuesday, 3rd Nov, the Jamaat and the Society gave some rice and wheat flour along with Rs. 150 each to the remaining people, while they were leaving the camp to go to their respective employers. Jamaat’s Jaipur President Mr. Waqar Ahmad and Students Islamic Organisation’s Joint State Secretary Muhammad Shakir also visited the camp and met the victims.

Many organizations like PUCL Rajasthan and others as well as individuals helped the sufferers and provided eatables, medicine and monetary help. The five days camp was indeed help in bad times for the poor laborers who otherwise might face difficult times.

Our Journey

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
