Bijapur. May 22, 2011. A Bijapur District level “Ijtema-e-Aam” (public programme) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) Bijapur was held here on May 19. A huge gathering of over 4,000 persons attended the Ijtema. Maulana Abdul Azeez, former deputy Ameer of JIH from Hyderabad as the chief guest and Mr. Atharullah Shariff, Secretary JIH Karnataka as special guest participated.
In his inspiring speech Maulana Abdul Azeez called upon the Muslims to work for establishment of Deen in the life. He said, “Imaan (faith) and Ehsaan (highest quality of spiritual life) are the qualities of a Da’ee (Islamic Worker).” Every Muslim should retrospect about what he/she had sent for the life to come in the hereafter, the Maulana said. The Ijtema had been organized on the theme “Enter into the Islam completely.”
In his keynote address Mr. Yousuff Kanni, district organizer of JIH highlighted the issues concerning Muslims of Bijapur. He said that, “The total population of Bijapur is 22 lakhs, Muslims account for 20 percent but their share in Economics and Politics is pathetic. Efforts should be made to achieve equitable justice in these fields.”
