May 22, 2019

Azad Jammu and Kashmir President, Sardar Masood Khan has called for the provision of equal opportunities and enabling environment to the orphans and neglected children to mold them into responsible citizens of the country. 

Addressing at an Iftar reception in Muzaffarabad, President has emphasized that orphans must not feel, alone, abandoned or neglected, and encouraged the children to grab whatever opportunities they find to excel in education and to make their way forward in the society. 

He said wars, social and political conflicts, natural calamities, diseases and accidents were some of the causes that leave thousands of children orphans and parentless. 

Masood Khan said that in a Muslim society, an orphan should get care by others at par with the care one provides to his/her own children by ensuring that all orphans get physical, mental and emotional well-being without any discrimination.
