Hyderabad: Are Hyderabad Muslims as prosperious as Owaisi Brothers claim? While Asaduddin owaisi and Akbaruddin Owaisi, the two leaders of Hynderabad based Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) sell Hyderabad dreams to Muslims across the country, a report says Hyderabad Muslims remain deprived and debt ridden.
MIM has been vigorously trying to expand in different parts of the country, from Maharashtra, to Karnataka and from Bihar to UP and even Delhi, it seems it has miserably failed to improve the lot of even Hyderabad Muslims.
A report in Deccan Chronicle, a Hyderabad based English daily sais that a survey is being conducted by a city based NGO Helping Hand Foundation in Old City. The NGO wants to know the socio-economic condition of the Muslim community, largely concentratedin the Old Hyderabad city.
The report suggests that Helping Hand Foundation survey which began on May 2 has covered 5000 so far in the entire south zone. Mujtaba Askari, the founder of the foundation wants to know details of individuals suffering from various health problems and also those who are debt-ridden.
While talking to Deccan Chronicle, Mujtaba says that the preliminary data results obtained from the survey revealed that the minority population of the Old City areas, particularly in the urban slums, are living below the poverty line (BPL) and are debt-ridden.
“Both these parameters are tightly interwoven and are having a huge negative impact on the other socio economic aspects of life, like education, employment, women empowerment and well- being of the families”Askari was quoted as saying by the Deccan Chronicle.
