This time, Id Milad willbe withoutloud music

As part of the efforts to celebrate the festival in peaceful and eco-friendly ways, the Anjuman-e-Islam, Hubballi, has taken a decision to celebrate this year’s Id Milad without using loud music from DJs but hold different competitions to encourage people, especially children and youth.

Addressing presspersons here on Tuesday, Anjuman-e-Islam president Mohammed Yusuf Savanur said that all the 106 jamats in Hubballi have expressed their support to the decision taken by the committee.

“If any jamat violates the ban on DJs, stern action will be initiated against it after discussing it in the executive committee,” he said.

To encourage peaceful celebrations of Id Milad, the committee has announced five cash prizes for jamats that complete their process at the earliest and without any fuss.

Id-e-Milad-un-Nabi competition will see more than 250 students from 25 institutes coming under the Anjuman-e-Islam compete in Naat Qawwali, essay writing, elocution and quiz competition on November 7, he said.

The participating students will be divided into four groups: Class 1-4, Class 5-8, Class 9-12 and degree and above. Each competition will have two winners, he said.

Sayed Shah Hyder Wali Qadari of Nilanga, Maharashtra, will be the chief guest of the programme which will be inaugurated at 10 a.m. at Anjuman Centenary Auditorium.

Sayyed Tajuddin Quadri, Qari Zahiruddin, Abdul Hameed Khairati, Altaf Halwoor and the former Ministers A.M. Hindasgeri and Jabbarkhan Honnalli will attend the programme as guests of honour.

These competitions are being organised to ensure that students understand the importance of celebrating Islamic festivals in a peaceful manner and also the teachings of Prophet Mohammed, he added.

Mr. Savanur clarified that Id Milad will be celebrated on November 10 and not November 12 as announced earlier. Committee office-bearers Altaf Nawaz Kittur, Basheer Ahmed Halwoor, Abdul Munaf Devgiri and others were present at the press conference.
