Tree Plantation Campaign in District Chiniot

In his address Mr. Muzammal Yar Dahr, Deputy District Officer, Social Welfare, Women Development & Bait-ul-Maal Tehsil Lalian, focused that planting is supposed to be a job of every citizen. It is a simple task we can all do with minimum effort. Infact its Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and sadaqa-e-jaria and its reward continue even after the death of the person who plants a tree. Narrated Hazrat Anas-bin-Malik (Allah be pleased with him): The Prophet (PBUH) said, "If any Muslim plants any plant and a human being or an animal eats of it, he will be rewarded as if he had given that much in charity".

In his address Mr. Saeed Mashaal Bhatti, Deputy District Officer, Social Welfare, Women Development & Bait-ul-Maal, Tehsil Bhowana, also elucidated that to be environmentally sustainable a country is said being forest about 25 percent but we are a mere fraction of that number and sadly, we are actually deforesting in a great speed. We all know that trees help to attract clouds for rain, help to reduce the amount of carbon monoxide in the air which reduces global warming; it slows the rate of desertification. Trees help recharge ground water and sustain stream flow.

In his address Mr. Malik Muzafar Abbas, Deputy District Officer, Social Welfare, Women Development & Bait-ul-Maal, Tehsil Chiniot, focused that at least we can plant a tree on our birthday to start and encourage other too. We can also plant trees on special occasions like New Year, Eids etc. If some one has vacant land they can be encouraged to plant trees as Government can help in this regard. And trees actually pay lot in terms of monetary gains. As was done by China we can encourage school children to plant trees. In monsoon some days should be fixed only for tree plantation for school kids.

In her address Miss. Farrukh Rizwan, The District Officer Social Welfare, Women Development & Bait-ul-Maal District Chiniot, emphasized that tree plantation is a noble campaign, its rewards are uncountable, every person living in Pakistan could plant a tree wherever he or she lives. This would be one positive thing to say that so many million planted a tree in Pakistan. Now each person of our society has to take responsibility to grow up at least one tree keeping in his mind that if he/she needs oxygen to live, he/she has to produce it for himself by plantation in its house premises or in his/her street or near roadsides.
