Jamaat-e-Islami Hind turns saviour to the blind family of Uttar Pradesh

Fed up of their penury and the burden of their five blind sons, a couple in Uttar Pradesh's Mau district had sought mercy killing for their entire family.

Munauwar (60) and his wife Rubina (55) had pleaded for mercy killing in their letter sent to President Pratibha Patil, Uttar Pradesh Governor B.L. Joshi, state Chief Minister Mayawati and other authorities of Mau district, about 300 km from Lucknow. 

"We don't want to live any more. It's miserable. We are not even able to arrange food for ourselves on a daily basis," Munauwar told reporters in Mau on Friday.  

All his five sons aged between 16-35-were born blind.  

"As life has become a burden for all of us, we want to end it soon. Therefore, we have written to the president and others, seeking permission for mercy killing," he added. (See the NDTV report).

The nation was shocked to know the weird desire of the poor family.  Mau District Magistrate Rakesh Kumar told reporters, "Yes, we have learnt that a couple has sought mercy killing. We will meet the family and ensure they receive necessary help and are rehabilitated."   

Meanwhile the plight of the distressed family moved some noble souls in New Delhi. They are Vision 2016 people who are in the field to help the poor with the catchy tag "Creating Partnership with the needy". They sought the co-operation of  Uttar Pradesh Jamaat-E-Islami Hind.

The Uttar Pradesh Jamaat plunged into action and established contacts with the distressed family. It was decided to adopt the family. 

The young and energetic Zonal President (Ameer-e-Halqa) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Uttar Pradesh East Maulana Waliullah Saeedi Falahi rushed to Mau all the way from Gorakhpur and met the dejected souls. He assured them to provide food, shelter, education and basic necessities. (See the full report here.)

The family saw light at the end at last. Alhumdulillah!
