Mayiladuthurai (Tamil Nadu): An Islamic college from Mayiladuthurai has come forward to donate 20 acres of its land for the construction of the medical college in Mayiladuthurai. An eight-member delegation, which included members from Jamia Misbahul Hudha Arabic College in Nidur near Mayiladuthurai, met Nagapattinam district collector Praveen P Nair and gave its consent to donate land for the medical college. “We wholeheartedly wish to donate our land of 21 acres for the welfare of the public without any expectations for a return of a favour. We took this decision days ago after we realized Mayiladuthurai could get a medical college if it there is enough land available to the government. The government should now fulfil the wish of Mayiladuthurai residents to have a medical college here,” said SA Mohamed Sadeeq, general secretary of Jamia Misbahul Hudha Trust in Needur. Jamia Misbahul Hudha Arabic College in Needur and its Trust has been functioning since 1912. The barren land they are donating is near a hamlet called Erumbukadu in Mayiladuthurai taluk.
