Muslims should be in the forefront to carry out the responsibility of betterment of the society, though it lies on every citizen of this country, stressed Dr Hamid Beg, State president, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), Madhya Pradesh zone. He urged the Muslims to focus on this issue. Everyone should support this campaign, carry its message to each household and make it a grand success, he added.
Beg made this observation in his presidential address in the inaugural programme of the nationwide campaign, “Strong Family, Strong Society”. The function was organized at Hameed Manzil Bhopal on Friday by the Women Wing of JIH, MP zone.
Ms Anita, Founder of Damini NGO working for the empowerment of women on the occasion called upon women folk to realise their responsibility of building a strong family and thereby a strong society.
Realising their responsibility the womenfolk should leave no stone unturned to achieve their goal. A woman’s role in her home where she looks after the needs of every household is more important than the duty of a district collector, she added.
Mutual love and respect
Ms Aruna, a retired resource person of Azeem Premji Foundation, said that for laying the foundation of a strong family it is very necessary that there should be mutual love and respect amongst the family members.
Presently working as a member of Akhil Bharatiya Janseva Mahila Sangathan, Aruna said womenfolk should realise their strength as they are in no way inferior to men.
They should perform their duties with utmost dedication. Both men and women are on a par with each other. It is only the division of labour which the Creator has assigned us, she added.
