It is election time and candidates are making promises to develop the area and change its fate. Moreover, their supporters are accusing the sitting councillor for all the ill-wills with candidate promising the moon if voted to power. Well nothing wrong in this!
But hold on in such a background a dead cat was found left unattended in Abul Fazal Enclave for about two days until a resident took the step to remove it.
“The area is in bad shape and leaders are not bothered as once again development is not an issue. Everybody is looking for the messiah to clean the area with residents least bothered about doing anything,” said a resident, adding that it is shame that Muslim colonies are in bad shape.
Once you enter a locality and if it is in bad shape then make sure that it must be Muslim populated locality as residents, activists, leaders and religious organisations are least bothered, said M Rashid, who resides in Mumbai and had visited Delhi on a business trip recently.
“What left many shocked that for about two days several people went on five times a day to offer prayer ignoring the dead cat that actually was dumped by another resident outside another house. So much of emphasis is given in Islam on cleanliness and neighbourhood rights but Muslims don’t practice it in letter and spirit. In this case it appears that everybody was waiting for another person to remove the cat until a young professional did the work,” said Md Tajuddin.
It is a small thing but it reflects poorly on the community that is not ready to take steps that might help in improving the situation, said Syed Rizwan.
