Parents of a 16-year-old student - who collapsed while watching the Milad-un-Nabi procession and later died in a hospital in Mumbai on Tuesday, have alleged that loud and blaring DJ music took the life of their son, according to a media report.
"Ansari Mohammad Umair, a student of Anjuman-e-Islam Akbar Peerbhoy College was standing by roadside near Jhula Maidan in Mumbai Central area to have a glimpse of Milad-un-Nabi procession on Monday. Suddenly, he started sweating and collapsed", Urdu daily Inquilab reported on Thursday.
"Unconscious Umair was immediately rushed to a nearby clinic and later to Mumbai's JJ Hospital. Doctors tried their best to save his life, but he died Tuesday afternoon", Mohammad Ameen Ansari is quoted by the newspaper.
"Doctors and CT Scan reports said Umair died due to loud and blaring DJ music played during the Milad-un-Nabi procession", Ameen Ansari said.
"High decible DJ music affected and damaged Umari's brain nerve and heart", he alleged.
JJ Hospital doctors while revealing the cause of death said, "Umair died due to serious brain and heart injuries."

Organisers of the Milad-un-Nabi procession had held series of meetings and issued appeals saying not to play DJ Music during the procession.

Commenting on Umair's death Syed Moinuddin Ashraf, a well-known local cleric, agreed that DJ music being played during Milad-un-Nabi procession is creating problems.

"Despite repeated appeals, people are playing high volume DJ music during the Milad-un-Nabi procession. I personally experienced uneasiness due to this", he said.

President of Raza Academy, Mumbai Saeed Nuri also slammed DJ music played during Milad-un-Nabi procession.

"Umair's death should work as a wake-up call for all of us", he said.

Ironically, Shiv Sena organ Hindi Saamna in a front-page article last year had criticised and denounced DJ music played during Milad-un-Nabi procession.

“Muslim clerics had issued a ‘fatwa’ that no one should play DJ music during the Milad un-Nabi procession as it is forbidden and haram in Islam. But, the Muslims, recklessly ignoring the ‘fatwa’ issued by their clerics, played DJ music in high decibel sound”, the Hindi Saamna front-page article titled ‘To hell with the fatwa’ said.
