સિદ્દીક અબ્દુલ્લાહ ચપટી અલ્લાહ ની રહેમત માં પહોંચી ગયા છે. ઇન્ના લીલ્લાહે વ ઇન્ના ઈલય્હે રાજેઉન. મર્હુમ ભરૂચ રેલ્વય સ્ટેસન પર એક ભાઈ ને બચાવવા જતા પોતેજ સ્લીપ થઇ જતા અકસ્માતે અલ્લાહ ની રહેમત માં પહોંચી ગયા છે. અલ્લાહ તેમની magferat ફરમાવે અને જન્નત માં આલા મુકામ અતા કરે. આમીન.


Siddik Abdullah Chapti has set an example for the community. Such a selfless act, who lost his own life to save someone else. May Allah (SWT) give Sabr-e-Jameel to the family. In this difficult time, we make dua for Marhum, may Allah (SWT) rest him in peace and give him the place in Jannat-ul-Firdaus. Ameen.

બ્રિટનના વિદેશમંત્રાલયે નાગરિકોની ચિંતાને પગલે સ્પષ્ટતા કરી

બ્રિટનમાં ‘ઓવરસીસ સિટિઝન ઓફ ઈન્ડિયા’ અથૉત ઓસીઆઈનો દરજજો ધરાવતા નાગરિકોની વધી ગયેલી ચિંતાને પગલે બ્રિટનના વિદેશમંત્રાલયે સ્પષ્ટતા કરી છે કે આવા નાગરિકો ભારતમાં હોય ત્યારે પણ તેમને બ્રિટિશ નાગરિક તરીકે જ ગણવામાં આવશે અને તેમને જરૂર પડશે તો કોન્સુલરની મદદ મળી રહેશે.

ઓસીઆઈનો દરજજો મેળવનારા ભારતીયો જ્યારે ભારતમાં હોય ત્યારે તેમનો શું દરજ્જો તે અંગે ઘણી ગૂંચવણ ઊભી થઈ હતી જેને કારણે આવા ભારતીયો ચિંતામાં હતા. આ અંગે બ્રિટનના વિદેશમંત્રાલયના કોન્સુલેટ ડિરેકટોરેટ લાઉઝ એડવડ્ર્સે જારી કરેલા પત્રમાં કહેવાયું છે કે ઓસીઆઈના દરજજાથી આંતરરાષ્ટ્રીય કાયદા હેઠળ વ્યક્તિની રાષ્ટ્રીયતા પર કોઈ અસર થતી નથી.

ઓસીઆઈ દરજજો ધરાવતા નાગરિકો ભારતમાં હોય ત્યારે પણ તેમનો બ્રિટિશ નાગરિક તરીકેનો દરજજો ચાલુ રહેશે અને તેમને કોન્સુલરની મદદ મળતી રહેશે. આ દરમિયાન ભારત સરકાર તેમને બેવડું નાગરિકત્વ ધરાવતા નાગરિક નહીં ગણે. તેમ છતાં તે ભારત સરકાર પર નિર્ભર છે.ઉલ્લેખનીય છે કે ઓસીઆઈનો દરજજો ધરાવતા નાગરિકોને બ્રિટિશ સરકાર તરફથી મલ્ટિ-પરપઝ આજીવન વિઝા, પોલીસ સમક્ષ નોંધણીમાંથી મુક્તિ અને નાણાકીય તથા આર્થિક બાબતોમાં એનઆરઆઈ કરતાં વિશેષ દરજજો મળે છે.

Tankaria's most senior, Janaab Haji Ahmed Vali Munshi (Chati Master- "Dada") passed away in Chicago at the age of 90 after short illness. Inna Lillah Va Inna Ilayhi Rajiun. He was the 2nd most senior in the history of Tankaria. A teacher by profession, retired and setteled in Chicago, USA lived all his life helping others and never felt tired smiling. Whenever, you see him, he was always smiling. Whenever he met anyone, he had a smile of an innocent child who met one of his most loved friend.
In his life as a teacher, not only helped students reach high goals in life but helping their parents, helping poor villageres where he was just a visitor or a teahcer in school. He helped needy/illiterate people filling out forms and getting their benefits from Government. Even at the age of 88-89, he worked at Local Mosque as a volunteer.
We are sad losing such elder but at the same time make dua for him, for the best palce in hereafter.
His Namz-e Janazah was performed after Zuhur prayer. His sons have requested to make dua.
May Allah (SWT) rest him peace and grant him a place in Jannat-ul-Firdaus. Ameen.
