Muslim Family Adopts children of deceased Hindu Friend and Wants To Raise Them As Hindus

The Logical Indian Delhi

Amidst the hue and cry and political attempts to create disunity among Indians, there are instances that teach us that humanity is still alive, hatred is not the norm and tolerance is the only way ahead if we do not want to be lost in a cycle of violence.

Delhi high court praises a Muslim couple’s effort to raise two Hindu orphans ‘Ayush and Prarthana’ and termed the effort to become their guardian a “noble endeavor.”
“In a time when no one bothers to take care of orphans, we salute the efforts of Mohd Shahnawaz Zaheer though the couple is not benefited with anything”, Said Justice Waziri.

HC recently appointed Mohd Shahnawaz Zaheer, a commercial pilot, as the guardian of the twins under the Hindu Minority & Guardianship Act. Justice Najmi Waziri also approved a Trust set up in the name of the siblings, where the Indian Commercial Pilots Association and other well-wishers have contributed over Rs 1 crore. By virtue, the entire estate and remaining wealth of the dead parents will automatically go to the Trust and not to the guardian.

Zaheer disclosed how the court has entrusted one Arun Saini, a willing neighbour, to make sure the children receive Hindu religious instructions and can visit temple for prayers. “I don’t want them to ever convert. They will be raised as Hindus,” he said.
