IUML Women's Wing

by Malikul Azeez

Chennai: The women’s wing of the Indian Union Muslim League, Tamil Nadu unit, under the dynamic stewardship of Fathima Muzaffer has taken up the task of educating Muslim women both on the educational and social plane. The organisation has covered about 20 districts of Tamilnadu, including ten areas of Chennai city and more than 20,000 members have been enrolled. In many areas, in Chennai, women were taught and helped to start self-employed jobs like manufacturing jams, pickles, juices, papads, candles and cakes. These efforts have shown some good results in improving their economic conditions, to the extent that they now do not require pledging of their solitary jewels for emergencies. For the past five years, the women’s wing of IUML,collects zakath every year and distribute clothes to about 500 women, some sewing machines to selected deserving widows as well as provides medical assistance to the poor and needy patients to the tune of nearly Rs. 20,000/-. The women’s wing of IUML, Tamil Nadu was launched in March 1999, during a mega women’s conference, held as part of the golden jubilee celebrations of the Indian Union Muslim League. Nearly 3000 Muslim women participated in the conference and Fathima Muzaffer, the daughter of the noted Muslim League leader Janab A.K.A.Abdul Samad, was elected as its state organizer, for her sheer dynamism and urge to serve the community.

Having learnt substantially about Islam, she along with her husband Muzaffer Ahmed, has established an Islamic Information Centre, which has more than 3000 (three thousand) books in its library.

The Muslim Elders Welfare Association (Mewa) was set up to help the aged and the poor Muslims by giving them medical aid or direct them to proper schemes. But a lot has to be done and the Muslim Elders Welfare Association appeals to the community to come up with suggestions and join hands with them in working towards the welfare of the aged Muslims.

News in Brief

Bail for Madani

Ernakulam: P.D.P Chairman, Abdul Nasar Madani was granted bail in 19 criminal cases by the additional Chief Judicial Magistrate court, Ernakulam, lrecently. The Kerala Government did not object in granting the bail to him. Earlier, the Kerala High Court had observed that it is rather inhuman to put someone behind the bars for such a long time, as an under-trial. Most of his cases were that of provocative speeches, causing tension among different communities.

However, he can come out of the bars only after the verdict of the Madras High Court in the Coimbatore bomb blast case, on his bail petition. For the last six years, Madani has been languishing in the Coimbatore Jail, as the trial in the Coimbatore blast case has not yet been completed in the Sessions Court there.
