After a call from Siasat and Faiz-e-Aam, philanthropists donate Rs 47 lakh to the families of victims of crime
Hyderabad: Not everyone could help the needy at the time of the crisis. However, there are people blessed by Allah (SWT) who come forward to help the poor, the oppressed and the victims of community violence in need of hours.
In this regard, Hyderabadi residents and expatriates are well blessed. They always come forward to help the poor and oppressed in India.
The editor-in-chief of the Siasat Daily Zahid Ali Khan through the press articles highlights the suffering of the victims to Siasat readers around the world. Likewise, Faiz e Aam Trust headed by Iftekar Hussain receives grants from its donors in India as well as foreign countries.
Last week, Zahid Ali Khan and Iftekar Hussain appealed to philanthropists to help the wife and three daughters of Ashraf Ali (34) who died after three disbelievers intentionally crushed him under their drive to Kanpur. Ashraf Ali’s wife’s bank account number was also included in the article so donors could deposit the money directly into her account.
By the grace of Allah, in one week, more than 9 lakhs of rupees were deposited into the bank account of Ashraf Ali’s wife.
It should be remembered that Ashraf Ali worked as a battery mechanic in Kanpur. Three people had started a fight with him for a minor reason and then crushed him under their car.
Likewise, Zahid Ali Khan and Iftekar Hussain had appealed to philanthropists to help the family of Faisal, 17, in Uttar Pradesh. Faisal was beaten to death for selling vegetables outside his home by the police.
Faisal’s parents’ bank account was credited with Rs. 38 lakhs by residents of Hyderabad, readers of the daily Siasat and donors of Faiz e Aam Trust.
Zahid Ali Khan, Iftekar Hussain and the Siasat Millat Fund warmly appreciated the donors for their generous contributions and said they salute the people of Hyderabad origin who have the pure intention of helping others in times of mourning.
