NGO Dupes People in Name of Qurbani


India Tomorrow

HYDERABAD–Hyderabad police have registered a case against an NGO that cheated several Muslims after collecting money for Qurbani on Eid al-Adha.

The victims lodged complaints with Habeeb Nagar, Film Nagar and other police stations after ‘Khidmat Foundation’ failed to deliver their ‘Hissa’ (share) in the cattle.

They had paid Rs.2,700 to Rs.2,800 for each share. They were promised home delivery of the ‘Hissa’. After waiting for a few hours, the victims called the mobile numbers of the NGO but the phones were switched off.

Realising that they were cheated, many people approached the police and lodged a complaint.

Several people had also paid money and entrusted it with the responsibility of distributing meat among the poor.

The number of victims is said to be in hundreds. The NGO is believed to have cheated people to the tune of Rs.2 crore.

People in areas like Toli Chowki, Jahan Numa and Mallepally had paid money to the organisation for ‘Qurbani’.

The organisation lured people with discounts, offering a hissa for Rs.2,700 to Rs.2,800. At many places, where various organisations organise collective Qurbani, each hissa was priced between Rs.3,500 to Rs.5,000.

Gullible people fell into the trap without checking the antecedents of the organisation.

This is the first such incident of an organisation duping people in the name of Qurbani.
