After a prolonged legal battle and success in the labour court (Mahakamah Al-Thanfeedh) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and with the active intervention and help of Adv. P.A.Hameed Padubidri, a lawyer and social worker from Udupi based in Riyadh, an expatriate worker from Uppala returned his home country after more than 6 years. 

Mohammed Saleem Mohiddin Saheb, aged about 54, was in Jeddah. He originally hails from Uppala in Kasaragod district in Kerala. 

He boarded the flight bound to Calicut on February 4, at 2.30 am (Saudi time) from the King Abdulaziz International Airport, Jeddah and touched down at Calicut Intl. Airport at around 9.45 am. He was warmly welcomed by his family and friends in the Airport & he reached his hometown by road. 

Mr Saleem had been working in Al-Waha International hotel in Jeddah since more than 32 years. His last return to the KSA after his vacation was in 2015. He was doing well in the hotel till about 3 years ago. Everything was smooth until he landed in a tight-spot after death of the hotel's owner, Abdullah Bakr Al-Khatami. 

After the owner's death, the hotel gradually came to halt and remained closed.  Mr Saleem, along with other employees of the hotel, got into trouble due to the closure of the hotel & non-payment of the end of service benefits (ESBs). Although he persuaded the issue with the hotel management for the perks, but all his efforts went in vain. Meanwhile, his Iqama also got expired around couple of years back and remained invalid.

So, he filed a case against the hotel in the labor office & court in Jeddah claiming for the ESBs & other benefits about three years back. After several hearings & proceedings, the court decreed in his favor with regard to his perks & final exit by further referring & for further handling it to the Consulate General of India in Jeddah.

Thanks to the Consular General of India, H.E.Shahid Alam, IFS with the active voluntarism, help & legal assistance of lawyer & social worker, Adv. P.A.Hameed Padubidri, Mr. Saleem has immediately been provided with final exit visa last week valid for two weeks. As a result, he left for India from Saudia last morning & reached his home place happily via Calicut. 

Adv. Hameed Padubidri brought Mr. Saleem's case to the kind attention of CGI Jeddah, H.E.Shahid Alam IFS for his prompt action. Immediately within couple of weeks from the notice to the CGI, Saleem's case saw a happy end & he breathed a big sigh of relief. 

Even though the court awarded the payment of the ESBs to Saleem in its judgement, it's delayed due to some pending formalities; as such, Mr Saleem executed a power of attorney in favor of his relative, Mr Sheikh Mohammed Farooq in Jeddah for collecting the sum of ESBs either in cheque or by cash. 

After reaching to his native place, Mr. Saleem & his family extended their immense thanks to Adv Hameed for his socio- humanitarian works in getting Mr. Saleem to India and expressed immense gratitude to the CGI, Shahid Alam IFS & his staffs in the CGI Jeddah for his immediate action.

Riyadh: Indian Forum for Education (IFE) organized a mock test for aspirants of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) at Al Yasmin International School Riyadh on 17th June 2022. 

It was a first of its kind mock NEET test offline conducted in Riyadh.  A total of 100 students out of 185 registrations from Riyadh and other provinces like (Al Qaseem, Dammam and Jubail) of KSA  attended this Mock test. The objective of this test was to bring students outside of Pandemic culture of online activities and give them an opportunity to judge their preparedness well before appearing in the official NEET test to be held in July 17, 2022 in Riyadh, KSA. 

This was also achieved due to consistent efforts made by IFE President Dr. Dilshad Ahmed and his team. The test was conducted as a simulation to Actual NEET Test. Seating arrangements, invigilators (school teachers) and other logistics were made to student feel as if they are appearing in actual NEET.  

The reason behind the Mock Test was continuous requests from parents to help their wards to have a simulation model before they appear to the actual TEST of their career after XII standard. The team started working on this and took the opinion of parents through google survey/registration/ Chat created by IFE member Engr. Farhan and an overwhelming response from parents and students inducted an energy in all team members to conduct this test. Online registrations were made and Hall Tickets were distributed from Al Khayyam hotel for one week to give easy access to parents to collect. The team member’s enthusiasm made this happen. 

Prof. Nasir Siddiqui and Prof. Jahangir were assigned to prepare Mock Question Paper (Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology) on the basis of guidelines and pattern of NEET 2022. 

Students were informed using social media on each and every activity related to this Mock Test which IFE was performing to keep them updated. 

President of IFE Dr. Dilshad Ahmad, Senior IFE member Salman Khalid and team Firoz Khan, Saddur Rehman, Shahzad Samdani, Wasi Ahmed, Ahsan Siddiqi and Arshad Jawed were involved in this one-week activity.

The result will be declared on 24th June 2022

IFE is thankful to all the parents who always stand with their children and motivate them for this test. The IFE feel proud and thanks to them for making this event a successful one. The team assigned Salman Khalid to manage logistics to make a program success.

Dr. Dilshad Ahmad extended sincere thanks to all media persons, Alkabir and Almarai Companies for providing delicious snacks, also unfolded a thankful note to Al Yasmin Int’l School and Principal Dr. Shaukat for providing the school facilities in conducting the test.
