Trouble in Paradise: Qurban 2021 in Kashmir
United Nations has raised concerns about the “deteriorating human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir, including alleged ongoing violations of India’s minorities, particularly Kashmiri Muslims.” There have been many cases raised of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment; arbitrary detention; enforced or involuntary disappearances; extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions.
The ongoing situation with Indian forces has caused severe hardship Kashmiris. Most of the families have also been severely affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic as many businesses have shut down. This Eid al-Adha, we aim to put a smile on the face of our poor and needy Muslims brothers and sisters in Kashmir.
After the qurban, the meat is not distributed randomly to anyone who comes asking for it. After careful research and proper verification a list is formed of those who are the most needy families. The preparation of this list is done with a lot of care so that meat reaches those who are really deserving. The meat is distributed to the poor families, the homeless, and orphans in Kashmir.
The team on the ground will be fulfilling all Islamic principles and requirements as per proper Islamic teachings. The qurban will be carried out by Islamic Relief and Research Trust Kashmir that focuses on mobilizing communities for empowering the social-economic and educational status in Kashmir.
By donating to this qurban campaign, our donors have the opportunity to help feed their Muslim brothers and sisters directly on the ground in Kashmir. It’s not just about the quantity of the donation. The main aim is the quality of our donations and being a part of circulating good for the sake of Allah.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said: “The best of deeds is making the believer happy, such as covering his ‘awrah, satisfying his hunger or meeting his need.” [Tabarani]
For these people finding sustenance is a challenge in itself and with their non-existent to meager earnings a good meal (like meat) is a luxury most have rarely experienced.
Your sacrifice done for these people will bring them huge relief and great joy on this auspicious occasion of Eid. Donations to this campaign will help provide meat packages to these poor and needy Muslims so that they also get the chance to forget their sorrows and make the most out of Eid.
