In a first a Srinagar based all women religious seminary has launched a Ramadan special traffic awareness program.Jamia Islamia Mahdul Muslimat, an all woman religous institute based in Barzalla has issued flyers to begin with.Chairperson of the institute Mubeena Ramzan said that since the people throng this month to mosques this is the ripe time to do the campaign."Of many problems commuters face on roads is due to people not complying with traffic rules," she said. She says that they will not be publishing any Ramadan calenders but have instead fliers and are being distributed among masses. "We published 20 thousand fliers to begin with and we are planning to campaign for the same generating awareness about importance of 'behaving on roads'," she tells 5 dariya news .For Mubeena, this too is a good deed which needs to be done 'immediately'. "There is a mess on roads, people unnecessarily parking vehicles on roads, honking etc," she said It's going to be difficult, Mubeena thinks, but needs to be done any way.
Being all women institute might not get them access to every place, however she says that mosques are filled in the month of Ramadan and that is the place people need to be sensitised. "Every religious gathering we will hold or are invited to we will be holding special lectures on following traffic rules and how much important it is," Mubeena plans, adding that the program is not men specific."Women as well drive cars, own scooties they too need to be made aware of all these things," she says. According to her it is high time the society becomes conscious that 'doing good deeds and being good ecompasses daily lives'. "Be at home or on job we need to follow what is beneficial for us. Roads are like veins for any habitation let us not clog them," Mubeena comments.Pertinently Mubeena was mentioned among the 500 muslim influential global leaders in 2018.
