MUMBAI — Prominent Muslim organisation, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH), has initiated a robust ‘door-to-door campaign’ geared towards convincing women to exercise their right to vote in the ongoing general elections. The campaign, orchestrated by the Jamaat’s women’s wing in Maharashtra, underscores the crucial need for an active involvement of women in the democratic process.

Mumtaz Nazir, chief of JIH women’s wing in Maharashtra, emphasised the significance of women’s representation through voting. “There is a greater need for awareness among women so that they can register their full representation through voting,” she said.

The JIH campaign aims to collaborate with other social and welfare organisations to ensure widespread outreach and sustained engagement. The initiative will persist until the culmination of the voting process.

In various localities of this vast metropolis including Meera Road, Madanpura, Jogeshwari, Malat Nagar, and Maloni, women are being enlightened about the essence of voting. They are being apprised of its democratic essence and its alignment with Shariah principles. Mumtaz Nazir highlighted the multifaceted significance of voting, portraying it as a democratic obligation.

Chenkashah, an advocate associated with Bharat Jodo Abhiyan and other organisations, emphasised the collaborative effort underway to foster voting awareness among women. He stressed the importance of women voicing their concerns and aspirations through the ballot box. “The responsibility of half the population of the country is on you (women),” he reiterated, urging women to embrace their pivotal role in shaping the nation’s destiny.

Hasina Khan from the Babak Collective Group appealed for substantive action over mere publicity. She underscored the imperative of reaching out to communities and engaging in meaningful dialogues on women’s issues. “Their first task on voting day is to vote,” she said emphasising the need for women to prioritise their civic duty over leisure activities.

Khatun Sheikh, also known as Khatun Apa, the head of Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan, acknowledged the need for intensified efforts in raising voting awareness among women. She advocated for women’s visibility at polling booths, echoing the sentiment that women should be as prominent in the political sphere as they are in other sectors.

It is worth noting that diverse social organisations are actively conducting awareness campaigns to underscore the importance of voting across various demographics.

Through collaborative endeavours and targeted outreach initiatives, these organisations aspire to foster a culture of active citizenship, wherein women play a pivotal role in shaping the nation’s democratic landscape.
