Maulvis who gave home tuitions rendered jobless

Before the lockdown began on March 24, Maulana Hafiz Jehangir used to teach deeniyat (religious subjects) to Muslim children at a maktab (primary school) at Malvani in Malad West. In the evening he gave tuition to 10 students, again in Islamic subjects including Quran, Hadiths (sayings of the Prophet) and also taught rituals of namaz to his students. He earned around Rs 15000 a month on which his family of four comprising him, wife and two children survived. Both the maktab and the private tuition in deeniyat he gave have been suspended for over two months now in the wake of the coronavirus-induced lockdown. “It is really tough to survive as I have no work. I cannot do anything except teaching deeniyat,” said Maulana Jehangir.
