In an exceptional way to help Pulwama martyrs in the tough situation, the 44-year-old man identified as Murtaza A Hamid who is a Mumbai-based businessman has offered the biggest ever donation of Rs 110 crore from his taxable income to the PM’s National Relief Fund. The entire money will now go to the families of the Pulwama martyrs.
Hailing from Kota, the Mumbai-based businessman sent an email and then sought an important appointment to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this matter. Digging a bit deep about his personal life, Hamid is visually impaired by birth. He had graduated from Government Commerce College. Now, he is currently working as a scientist and researcher in Mumbai.
Speaking to TOI over the phone call, Hamid told what really inspired him to provide timely assistance to Pulwama martyrs’ families, “The inspiration to help and support those who lay down their lives for our motherland should be in the blood of every citizen of the country.”
Hamid also regrets that if the government had acknowledged his scientific innovation at that time itself, then Pulwama incident could have been prevented. He claimed that he innovated ‘Fuel Burn Radiation Technology’ which can trace and locate any vehicle or object without GPS, camera.
Hamid also claimed that he had previously proposed to government and offered his innovation free of cost to ‘National Highways Authority of India’ in September 2016, but he got his proposal sanctioned two years later in October 2018 and unfortunately, there has been no advancement since then.
