JI dis­trib­utes Eid gifts among 1700 needy peo­ple

Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

KARACHI—amaat-e-Is­lami (JI), Karachi chief Engr. Naeem-ur-Rehman has said that we should help needy peo­ple around us as this is our re­li­gious and so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity. He ex­pressed these views while ad­dress­ing a cer­e­mony held by a Naz­imabad chap­ter of JI in col­lab­o­ra­tion with AlKhid­mat to dis­trib­ute Eid clothes among 1,700 needy in­di­vid­u­als.

It is per­ti­nent to men­tion here that to­kens were al­ready provided to the in­di­vid­u­als who later re­ceived their gifts from var­i­ous stalls, erected at a gala type cer­e­mony. Play area for chil­dren was also es­tab­lished at the cer­e­mony where they en­joyed swings and other amuse­ments.

peak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, the JI leader said that some 40 per­cent pop­u­lace of the coun­try is be­ing com­pelled to live un­der the line of poverty.

e said that it would be nec­es­sary to pres­sur­ize the rul­ing elite and hold cor­rupt per­sons ac­count­able for their deeds, if we want to change the pre­vail­ing sys­tem in the coun­try.

The JI leader was of the view that the en­tire so­ci­ety is vis­i­bly di­vided into two classes one that plun­ders and make off shore com­pa­nies and the sec­ond who com­pro­mises their ne­ces­si­ties to share hap­pi­ness with their fel­low coun­try­men.

On the oc­ca­sion Wa­jih Has­san, a lo­cal JI leader an­nounced to dou­ble the num­ber of gifts from the next year.—NP
