Ajmer Dargah Sharif donates rice bags to endo care centre

Sheikhul Mashaeikh Dewan Syed Zainul Abedin Ali Khan Sahib, the spiritual head (Gaddinashin) Dargah-Ajmer Sharif of Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishty, distributed 30 rice bags (each weighing 10 kg), fruits to inmates of Endosulfan Day Care Centre at Kokkada in Belthangady taluk.

Sajjadanashin (spiritual head) of Ajmer Dargah on behalf of his Hazrat Khwaja Garib Nawaz RA Educational and Charitable Trust donated Rs 10,000 to the trustees of Mangaluru-based Seva Bharathi who have been managing the care centre since April 1.

Dewan Syed Zainul Abedin Ali Khan, known popularly as ‘Dargah Dewan’ was visiting these parts for the first time to meet his disciple Abdul Rasak Musliar residing at Kokkada. ‘Dargah Dewan’, who supports humanitarian causes across the world, decided to visit the centre, when informed about it.

Addressing the gathering, he revealed being saddened on learning that aerial spraying of Endosulfan pesticide on cashew plantations has left a trail of crippling deformities and mysterious deaths. “Setting aside politicking, state and Centre should respond in full measure to welfare of endosulfan victims,” he said.

Dewan Syed Zainul Abedin Ali Khan interacting with Wenlock Hospital’s District Early Identification Centre (DEIC) Nodal Officer  Dr U V Shenoy directed the trustees of Seva Bharathi to write a letter on what needs to be done for the centre and Endosulfan victims to Union Health Minister. 

“Send me a copy of the letter and I will pursue the issues with Centre,’’ he told Nayak.
