Historic Moula Ali Urs starts tomorrow

Moula Ali Urs at Moula Ali dargah in Hyderabad is set to start tomorrow. The Urs would continue for five days starting tomorrow and about 10 Lakh devotees are expected to visit the dargah during these celebrations.

The Moula Ali Urs commemorates the birthday of Moula Ali, the son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad. For the Shia community, Hazrath Ali is the first Imam and successor to Prophet Muhammad, while the Sunni community sees him as the fourth Khalifa. Moula Ali's birthday falls every year on the 13th day of Rajab, the seventh month of Islamic calendar and it is a tradition in Hyderabad for more than 400 years now to celebrate this occasion near the dargah on top of Moula Ali hill.

Is Hyderabad ready for international attention?

Come November, the world would look towards Hyderabad. Our city is going to host Global Entrepreneurship Summit from Nov 28-30, for which Ivanka Trump, Advisor to the US President, will lead the U.S. delegation.

With incessant rains and battered roads, is Hyderabad prepared for such mega events of international scale? While Telangana state government has allotted Rs 500 crore for improvement of roads, traffic junctions, beautification, and sanitation, the big question is when and to what extent are the funds going to be released? More importantly, how prudently will these funds be deployed to build the historic city's infrastructure?
