An Exciting Cricket Match

Please see Q.no. 3(iii) of 2012

 “Natural Disasters” OR “Earth Quake”:

Natural disasters are faced by the world every now and then. They are natural process of controlling population. There are floods, earthquakes, droughts etc.

Recently there had been an earthquake, which was experienced in Pakistan and India. Though it was felt in areas of Karachi but its major disastrous effect was faced by the people of Gujrat in India.

It was severe enough to kill almost thirty percent of population of Gujrat whereas the ratio of people who were injured and damage is too high. It looks almost a month for the workers to clear up the mess that was created by the earthquake.

Gujrat is basically a Muslim-based city. Most people who were killed were the followers of Islam. People lost their properties, their houses, their families and other belongings. Many volunteer agencies worked and helped people to get back to life, army, police and municipal corporation were efficiently working to get the dead-bodies and buried people out of the ground. Lots of people were not found. People were given funds by the NGOs, and social welfare organization and of course by the government, to compensate the damage caused by the Earthquake

Importance of Unity in the Muslim World:

Muslim Unity is the order of the present political condition of world Muslim unity had been needed in the past too and after the 11th September Trade Tower blast in America, it has become most essential for the Muslims of the World.

The 11th September incident has victimized the Muslims and, then are considered as terrorists throughout the world by the west. The Muslims have to unite themselves to correct this wrong view of the west. This can be done through Muslim unity and by proving that followers of Islam stand for .peace and work for peace and that terrorism are quite against the teachings of Islam.

The late Shah Faisal of Saudi Arabia had devoted his life for Muslim unity. Present regine of Saudi Arabia Still wants Muslims to unite together. This is to be understood by the heads of other Muslim countries too. If the Muslim Countries remain separate and think about their own well, the west can easily exploit them and make them weak.

It is the need of the day that Muslim countries should sit together. and think about the plans of the Non-Muslim countries, and then to chalk out a strategy for their independent and respectable existence in the world. Unity of Muslims does not mean that Muslims should unite to fight with the west.

It means only to decide a plan for peaceful and respectable co-existence. This can be done only through unity and cooperation in different fields. United efforts and cooperation in social economic industrial, technical and other fields will bring progress and prosperity for Muslim countries. A strong Muslim country cannot be dictated by the big-lords of the West’s. Unity is Strength and that is needed for Muslims of the world.
