'Humanity is above any religion' for Hyderabad's man Azhar Maqsusi

'Hunger has no religion' endorsing this motto, a social worker from suburbs in Hyderabad city of Southern India, Azhar Maqsusi has been providing free food to a number of daily wagers and impoverished in different parts of the country. Championing the noble cause, Azhar Maqsusi, a practicing Muslim by religion believes that his 'service to poor' is same as service to 'Allah'. A long queue has assembled near Gandhi General hospital in Hyderabad city of Telangana awaiting their first meal of the day. Always on time, Azhar Maqsusi, a philanthropist from suburbs in Hyderabad arrives at the spot with cauldrons of rice and curries to be distributed among the people. Holding disposable plates, the queue soon starts moving and Azhar Maqsusi along with his team hastily serves them rice and curry so as every individual in the queue gets his food without any delay. The program started near Dabeerpura flyover in Hyderabad in 2012 has now reached many parts of India. The poor labourers and daily wagers in Bengaluru, Raichur, and many parts of Jharkhand and Assam too are benefited through this food distribution initiative. A staunch believer of almighty, Azhar Maqsusi does not differentiate the people on the basis of their faiths or castes or creeds. Finding his contentment in helping the poor and needy, he wants to extend his free food distribution network and many other services in the country. Through crowd sourcing and volunteers joining the movement to help the poor, Azhar Maqsusi is providing services like free education and skill development classes to the poor making them self-reliant citizens of the country. His services are open to anybody may it be Hindu, Muslim or a Christian, for him, his 'service to the poor' is same as 'service to the God'.
