Sponsor poor children's education

Muslim clerics to the community: Sponsor poor children's education

By Faisal Fareed, 
Lucknow: Owing to high level of illiteracy in the community, Muslims were given a call for educating at least one child other than their own, during the sermon of Eid-ul-Azha namaz at Aishbagh Eidgah in Lucknow on Monday.
"Muslims should come forward and sponsor the education expenses of at least one child from the community. The community lags behind in education which is the key to success," said Imam, Maulana Khalid Rasheed Farangi Mahli during the sermon.
Mahli also appealed to the devotees for extending generous help to the community in setting up educational institutions. He asked the community to ensure polio vaccination for every child for the eradication of the disease from the country. He also touched the reservation issue and demanded that Muslims be given reservation in educational institutions and government and demanded their inclusion in SC list.
Large congregation of muslims were seen at Aishbagh Eidgah, Tile Wali Masjid and Asafi Masjid to offer namaz. At Tile Wali Masjid, Imam Maulana Qari Syed Shah Fazlul Rehman Waizi Nadwi led the prayers. Waizi also mentioned importance of education in his sermon.
"Muslims should realise the importance of education and make it mandatory that their children get quality education. It would be a great service if they also help in education of other muslim children," said Waizi.
At Asafi Masjid, Maulana Syed Kalbe Jawwad Naqvi led the prayers and exhorted the devotees for shunning social evils from the society.
