Muslims extend help to save Gita Press

Aligarh, Sep 2 (IANS) Aligarh’s Muslim Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) has expressed grave concern over a dragging strike in Gita Press in Gorakhpur which publishes books on Hindu religion.

The MCCI on Wednesday sent a cheque of Rs.11,111 to the Gita Press to help it meet the demands of the striking employees.

MCCI director Jasim Mohammadm told IANS that the Gita Press was the oldest publication house in the country providing religious books to the people at low cost.

He said that like the Gorakhnath temple, the Gita Press had become an identity of Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh.

“Gita Press is a symbol of our composite culture. So people from all walks of life and religions should rise to the occasion and extend their help to Gita Press to overcome its crisis,” he said.
