: Madurai district administration has been urged to allocate land for a burial ground for Muslims of Jaihindpuram and Jeeva Nagar.

A memorandum to this effect was submitted to the Collector, Anshul Mishra, by the Madurai Urban unit of Minorities People Welfare Committee.

Its organiser and former MLA, N. Nanmaran, said that some 2,000 muslim families of Jeeva Nagar and Jaihindpuram had sought land from the administration for burial ground. Though the administration in the past had promised to meet their demand, the work was very to fructify, he said.

Besides, the members wanted the administration to provide special coaching for the unemployed youths belonging to minority communities to face competitive examination.
