Although the government has plans to improve the conditions of minorities, it is increasingly felt that the community's lot will change for the better only when Muslims activists and groups contribute their bit.

The Foundation’s health agenda includes setting up a super speciality hospital and 10 speciality hospitals .


"The process and planning for all the projects are going on smoothly.Hopefully the targets will be achieved  Hassan told in an interview.

The Foundation has decided to construct 10,000 dwelling units in urban India while 100 model Islamic villages will also be developed by 2016.
