Srinagar:The guest speakers at JKYF’s two day state level volunteers’ workshop at BAITUL HILAL, Chawalgam in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district laid emphasis on basic understanding of issues and challenges confronting underprivileged, poor, resource less and disadvantaged sections of people.

The speakers described humility, sincerity, selflessness, character, missionary zeal and zest as inalienable elements of social service volunteerism.

The two day volunteers’ workshop was part of JKYF’s continuing efforts to sensitize the volunteers on ground about various issues & challenges related to voluntary social service.

Addressing about 150 senior volunteers from across Kashmir & Jammu regions, Senior Journalist & former North India BBC Correspondent Altaf Hussain appreciated the sincerity of volunteers and urged them to be pro active in identifying and reaching out to needy and deserving people in their respective areas.

Narrating an instance of a patient supported through crowd funding, Mr Hussain urged for discouraging the crowd funding through social media networking sites. He enjoined upon JKYF management to work steadily on rehabilitation of orphans, widows and destitute under Self Reliant Mechanism while guiding beneficiaries to work hard and uphold their self respect.


Appreciating the voluntary work of JKYF volunteers, Islamic scholar & preacher Moulana Showkat Shaheen in his speech advised volunteers to simultaneously take care of the rights and duties towards their parents, wives and children without any fail.

He referred to the great words of Ummul Moomineen (Mother of Faithful) Hazrat Khadeeja (RA) when She was consoling Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) by telling Him He was doing great humanitarian work & being truthful, while experiencing unimaginable physical & mental condition at the time of revelation of first Holy Quranic Verse revealed by Allah (SWT).
