Normally it is the stalk of the neem tree that serves as indigenous toothbrush or parts of the guava tree .. that is sold outside Sunni mosques ..ironically outside the Shia mosques you will invariably find Sunni Muslim beggars ..parked outside as permanent fixtures ..
Mostly those who runs mosques drive away the beggars , or let them sit without a permanent solution to this problem..
The Khoja Shia community being very rich , the beggars expect more relief , but honestly rich Muslims of any creed are the worst misers ..they would not give a penny leave aside a wad of notes and this is through personal experience shooting beggars that I have observed the tumultuous fate of misplaced charity.
The only time theire is show or genuiness of charity is during the Holy Month of Ramzan even those who are not beggars become beggars and even those who are misers reluctantly remove a penny or two..
Welcome To My World of Muslim Beggars, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. The Muslim community creates beggars , it pre empts the need of beggars to fulfill the pledge of charity to God..the rich Muslim has no time for those who languish on the roads , tenets of religiosity have been used wrongly , more divorce , more pain , polygamy by those who cant afford to feed one wife leave aside four.. generating more children,.. more pain..
The Muslim ghettos all over India look the same , and the Government prefers the lot of Muslims to live unchanged precariously on the edge, used abused by all political parties fr their nefarious ends to come to power by hook or by crook.
I am neither a political analyst or a political blog but I shoot the pain of the Muslim beggar as I see it through the lens of my camera ..we have no leaders with the healing touch, we live in the past, first it was the partition than the riots and than the call of misplaced jihad .. brainwashing our youth.…
