BHOPAL—Madhya Pradesh Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) president Dr. Hamid Beg has stressed that the responsibility for betterment of society lies on every citizen of this country and Muslims should be in the forefront to carry out this responsibility. All citizens should focus on this issue and therefore, support Jamaat’s nationwide campaign ‘Strong Family, Strong Society’, carry its message to each household and make the campaign a grand success.

Dr. Beg made the above observation in his presidential address at the inaugural programme as part of the nationwide campaign organised by the Women’s Wing of JIH, MP zone, at Hameed Manzil here on Friday.

Ms Anita, Founder of Damini NGO working for the empowerment of women, addressing the assemblage 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.

Ms Aruna, a retired resource person of Azeem Premji Foundation, expressing her views on the occasion, 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, Ms 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 at par with each other. It is only the division of labour which the Creator has assigned us, she added.

The programme started with recitation of verses from the Holy Qur’an by Mrs. Zakirah.

After a brief introduction of JIH, Ms. Rafiya Sultan, MP convenor of the nationwide campaign, highlighted the need of this campaign in the wake of an increase in the number of domestic violence incidents during the lockdown period, which forced the nation to understand and accept the fact that how fragile our family system has become. 

Mrs. Asifah Yaseen, speaking on the occasion, said that Western culture is being followed in the households while the fact is that the situation of women in the West itself is very painful.

Other speakers inlcuding Dr. Sabeeha and  Mrs. Mumtaz shed light on various ways to create awareness and improve the situation of the society.
