KSM journey so far......

The journey of Kokan Seva Manch (KSM) since its inception…. Kokani Muslims, an enterprising and vibrant community hailing from the coastal region of Maharashtra called Kokan had played a very important role in the social, cultural and educational development of Kokan. However, they were ignored by the successive state governments in the state’s development programmes. This was discussed on various social media forums which resulted in formation of KSM to empower the kokanis in Health care, Education, Social, Economic and Political development of Kokan. KSM’s journey began on 2nd June, 2014 at Seawood followed by extensive discussions at Goregaon on 2nd July and at Islam Gymkhana on 14th July 2014. It was felt that; (Afraad Ke Haatho mein Hai Aqwaam Ki Taqdeer Har Fard Hai Millat Ke Muqaddar Ka Sitara...) Thus a tiny seed of idea bloomed into a sapling soon and KSM was launched on August, 2nd 2014 at the Sveda Banquet Hall in Andheri, Mumbai under the leadership of Dr. Iqbal Vanoo with clear and well defined Vision, Mission and Objectives. Like in every journey, there are short and ultimate destination passengers, KSM too had some who started the journey with us but had short destination. Those dedicated and selfless have been working tirelessly, supported by the well-wishers in the community and have produced an impact seldom achieved by a new organization. The KSM think tank is fully aware of the challenges foreseen in the future and believes in the help from Allah, The Almighty, in achieving the goals with selfless honesty and committed dedication.
