PRESS RELEASE- Brotherhood day On 14th FEB,10.


Valentine’s Day promoteS promiscuity and IMMORALITY among youth

Students Islamic Organisation of India (Mumbai Division) plans to observe “Brotherhood day” against the contemporary Valentine’s Day.

For this a peaceful protest will be organized at Bandra Station on 13 Feb, 4 pm-5 pm to highlight the ill effects of celebration of valentine day.

“The celebration of Valentine’s Day is nothing, but giving open license to the youth to indulge in immoral acts. We believe that such activities will erode moral and family values, which ultimately promotes promiscuity among youth” Opined Abdul Qadeer (President SIO Mumbai)

Students Islamic Organisation of India is working since last 28 years to prepare students and youth for the benefits of society under “divine guidance”. It requests students and youth community to celebrate February 14, 2010 as Brotherhood day instead of Valentine’s Day. The Valentine’s Day is basically modern concept of showing emotions between girls and boys, which is actually a tool of satan to spread a immorality among them. This not only indulge our youth in destruction of values but also it promotes commercialization of emotions, wherein they will judge the so-called “love” using the amount their lover spend on them.

“Our intention is to peacefully oppose Valentine’s Day and not to do moral policing but to make the masses (Students) realize the ill effects of aping this culture from the west” Abdul Qadeer added.

“We are against this western cultural invasion in our society as it affects our family bonds and undermines India’s culture of respecting each other as sisters and brothers. True love does not need a particular day in a year to express love, also it is not limited to a one sided angle of man-woman love. It is a matter of fact that the market forces are promoting Valentine’s Day to reap benefits by selling lust. We strongly believe that the motive behind projecting this day is to promote unethical male-female relationships” Abdul Qadeer moaned.

“We should cherish and celebrate all kinds of love that the human heart is capable to feel. This includes loving one's family, loving one's friends, loving one's neighbors, loving orphans and the poor, loving animals and pets, loving nature and environments, loving one's parents and one's children, etc. What we see happening on the Valentine’s Day is exactly the opposite. We should question our acts and not copy others” He explained.

“SIO demands that students should behave as a responsible citizen of INDIA and realize what they can contribute to the society. Students should realize the real motive of Valentine’s Day and not fall prey to this culture of nudity and not be self centric alienating themselves from the society rather they should be caring for all and play their part in reconstruction of the society. We should spent some time with poor and needy and spend the same amount, which is going into expensive gifts and cards or on outing somewhere, on them”, concluded the SIO Mumbai President.

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.
