BENGALURU:Muslim Muthahida Mahaz, a confederation of Muslim organisations, and the Khateeb-O-Imam of Jamia Masjid briefed members of the community during Friday prayers on the importance of voting and appealed to all to come out and participate in the democractic process by exercising their voting rights.

Speaking to Express, Masood Abdul Khader, convener of the Mahaz said, “The community members have been told not to accept any gifts and vote for the candidate they feel is right and judge the candidate by his/her ethics.”

No Vote For Note

Maqsood Imran Rashadi, Khateeb-O-Iman, Jamia Masjid, City Market, said that a few members in the community were running behind money. He said this practice should be stopped and a good candidate should be elected. “Note ke badle vote mat do, (do not cast your vote for money). Discuss among elders about the candidate’s profile and then vote for him/her for development of your area. If you want to have good civic amenities and your area to be clean, select a good candidate cutting across party lines,” he advised.
