Wages of Liberalisation
Your editorial titled “Wages of Liberalisation” has provided a fresh perspective on the new economy. India is in the throes of great change due to liberalization. It seems the new trend cannot be reversed. In this changed circumstances, we need to rework our strategy. The Muslim artisans should be banded together into industries and quality must get the precedence. The old economy had the stress on employment. But the new economy focuses on mass production, economy, and superb quality. Muslims should think anew and begin to mould their educational and technical institutes, management training institutions and industries according to the change needs. Unless this is done, I fear we would be reduced to drawers of water and hewers of wood.

It is very heartening to see that Islamic Voice is carrying features which have no relation to Islam. The March issue contains an article on a bookshop in US! Cant understand what use is it to the Islamic knowledge of our children or any one of us. There are so many other magazines which carry such kind of information. Reduce such articles. I pray that you publish more articles which will increase our knowledge on Islam and help us to be better Muslims.

Editor replies: The attempt in Children's section is to ignite creativity together with providing Islamic knowledge. Much of the creative stuff is based on West's contribution in the field of science and development and naturally it would have no connection with Islam or Muslims. Our experience shows that the readership has increased among children after we began making this section relevant to children's psyche and taste. This even enhances the readership of the Islamic content appearing in this section even though the content has declined in proportion. This also allows us to increase the visual appeal of this section. I hope you would appreciate the new approach.
I am a citizen of Cape Town, South Africa. I had read a profile of Mr. Majeed and interview on your website sometime ago. I can say without a shadow of doubt that I have found that the drug is indeed very effective on patients we have applied. Myself and Dr. Pete Smith (Director of Traditional Medicines, South Africa) are planning to do a full-scale trial for the very first time in Africa. I plan to purchase Majeed's medicine in bulk by July as by then we will be ready to clear some irritants on our turf. Legally speaking it is recognised and trademarked on me and for two years I was struggling to get it going, but alhamdulilah I am finally coming somewhere with it. Of, course I have been receiving a lot of flak from some health sectors, however I just tread this path carefully. To be quite honest it's only people from the giant pharmaceuticals who are against me, the reasons are obvious and the patients I have are my living proof.
