BHOPAL – A one-day camp was organised at historical Taj-ul-Masajid to administer Covid-19 vaccine on Tuesday. People residing in Sajeda Nagar, Shaheed Nagar, Pari Bazar, Vajpayee Nagar, Royal Market and Eidgah Hills were the main beneficiaries of this vaccination camp. People working in the offices near the mosque and shop owners took the jab at this camp.
It was a part of Bhopal district administration’s initiative to accelerate the pace of vaccination in the walled city of old Bhopal wherein several hundred people of all communities got vaccinated.
According to SDM Jameel Khan, who also has the charge of CEO of the Madhya Pradesh Waqf Board, people from all religions came here to avail the facility set in the premises of the mosque.
Before organising this camp, Bhopal Shahar Qazi Maulana Syed Mushtaq Ali Nadwi and Shahar Mufti Abdul Kalam Qasmi had taken the vaccine to motivate the general public. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has appealed to religious leaders to play their role in preventing the spread of coronavirus and promoting vaccination.
Jameel Khan said special camps are being organised with the help of community members. A similar vaccination camp was organised at Haidery Jamaatkhana last week.
Meanwhile, up to 300 people from the Dawoodi Bohra community got their first dose of vaccination last week. Two teams of doctors and medical staff carried the drive. Mehmood Bhai Janeali, Shoeb Bhai and Abbas Bhai Sara played a key role in making arrangements for the beneficiaries. Local community head Aamil Saheb took this initiative 18 days back and was vaccinated. He appealed to community members to go for vaccination, said spokesperson of community, Hakimuddin Saify.
