Gone is the time when the community of believers is guided to Right Course of fulfilment in and around a masjid. Now we go to masjid; pray and leave for that hectic pace of life around. We no longer have the guidance of larger than life figures like the Prophets, Caliphs and the pious generations that followed them. Now we have institutions that give mooring and ethical support. If set aright and maintained in tune with time, institutions can fill the vacuum, always. Mahal is one of such institutions we have. But Mahals go at a snail’s pace, when the time changes too fast. MahalSoft is the initiative to herd the multifarious ways. Mahals run into the green pastures of modern technology.
It would be an understatement to say that technology simplifies human life. If you check any area of human existence we could only view technology as a boon. It has revolutionized so much that and it also can be used to eliminate any existing gaps and distinctions between humans. Not only does technology make the process of reaching products and services from all over the world reach mankind, right now efforts are being taken to address the urgent need for solution to issues like poverty and backwardness. Mahal Soft is a small initiative in this field. By considering the population alone, India is the second largest country in the world, which is a double edge sword. Considering the possibility, it has an enormous human resources but the issue lies in the imbalance in adequate resources. It lends back the efforts to make use of human resources a positive one. Reflecting the imbalance in the provision of our country is the disproportion of progress that is attained by the members comprising of different religions, caste groups and tribal traditions.
According to a study conducted under Justice Rajinder back in 2005, the Sachar Committee was formed. The main aim of this committee was to address the backwardness of the Muslim community in India. The study revealed that only very few members of the Muslim community has ever represented the population at administrative and jurisdiction levels. Therefore the central government have been working out solutions like scholarships, free training to participate in competitive examinations, medical insurance and self-employment assistance to tackle this backwardness. But there is an absolute ignorance about the solution of these action planes among the public. Therefore, they do not benefit people and here comes the significance of Mahal Soft. The successful incorporation of Mahal Soft would mean that a record of all the individuals in the mahal can be easily obtained and a direct line of communication between the government and the members is feasible thereby all registered members will come to know about the government policies, notifications regarding opportunities, competitive exams, any self-employment assistance, even treatment and assistance reaches the people through Mahal software. Mahal Soft is aimed to ease the efforts of the government to balance the resource supply.
