Kozhikode: In a first of its kind campaign in the state and possibly the country, the Assabah Society for the Blind, Kerala, India is giving door-to-door lessons to the visually impaired in reading the holy Quran in Braille.
The campaign is expected to benefit around 75,000 blind and visually impaired people across the state, who are incapable of reading Arabic in Braille.
P.T. Muhammed Mustafa, a teacher in the Meenchantha Government Vocational Higher Secondary School in Kozhikode and secretary of the Assabah Society, says the campaign mainly aims to help blind people who have not learnt to read the Quran or are incapable of going to institutions to learn it due to lack of assistance, physical disability or age.
The classes were inaugurated on Saturday by S.P. Mammookoya, a 73-year-old blind man, reciting the Quran with the help of Mr P.A. Abdul Kareem, a teacher in the Kolathara Calicut School for the handicapped in Kozhikode.
A teacher of the same school, P.T. Rasiyabi helped A.V. Tasleema of Mankavu, who went blind while studying in Class VIII, recite the Quran in braille.
While female teachers will hold the free classes for women , male trainers will do the same for men every Saturday and Sunday , making them competent in reciting the Quran in braille in three months, according to Mr. Mustafa, who reveals that the association has so far received around 500 applications from the district.
“The braille version of the Quran is not printed here. We import it from the Gulf, ” he explained.
