Amid continuous downpour for the last three days and subsequent evacuation of residents of Tolichowki and Seven Tombs areas of Hyderabad, Masjid-e-Tawheed has been lending a helping hand to the affected people, irrespective of religion.

Several areas of Hyderabad city were flooded on Wednesday but as soon as the situation turned worse on Tuesday night with rainwater entering homes, Hyderabad’s Tolichowki Disaster Response Force of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) had to use boats to evacuate several residents of Nadeem Colony to safety.

Masjid-e-Tawheed welcomed many of the evacuees on its premises for a temporary stay. Imaad, a member of the Masjid Committee, told Clarion India that volunteers of the mosque had been doing a yeoman’s service in the times of the crisis by sheltering the evacuated people in the spacious place of worship. “There is no barrier of any kind and anyone can come to stay”, Imad said.

Though people are not staying for long, the mosque committee has arranged for the stay for the needy. “We have also distributed around 500 food packets since the morning”, said Imaad talking about the relief work done by the mosque.

The expenditure for the relief work will be shouldered by the committee of the mosque. Through the official handle of the mosque, the message was circulated on social media and it has been re-circulated and highly appreciated by netizens.

Several low-lying areas in the city, such as East Anandbagh and Raj Bhavan Road, were flooded with rainwater. In Hyderabad’s Saroornagar, which received extremely heavy rainfall, many vehicles were swept away by the fast-flowing rainwater, reported The Quint.

The Indian Meteorological Department has warned of heavy to very heavy rainfall for Wednesday and Thursday.
