In 2011, the Africa Federation Education Board appointed Alhaj Gulamraza Ebrahim Sheriff Dewji as the Education Board Representative for Manipal and surrounding areas with the aim to assist our community students studying within the region.  With the growing student population from Africa in Manipal, Africa Federation facilitated an apartment on rental that would be used by the students as a center for religious purposes – that is how The Masumeen Islamic Centre (MIC) was established.
The center is being managed by the Student Association and various programs are conducted by the students for the students.  The student population in Manipal from different African Jamaats is on the rise and the center has become an epitome for their religious activities and social networking.  Currently, even other Shia students from Iran & Iraq attend the programs at the centre.  Presently there are about 40 students, girls and boys.

The prostate is a walnut-sized organ located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum in men. It produces fluid that makes up a part of semen.

What is Prostate Cancer?


Prostate cancer, also known as carcinoma of the prostate, is the development of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, some grow relatively fast. The cancer cells may spread from the prostate to other parts of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes.  It may initially cause no symptoms. In later stages it can cause difficulty urinating, blood in the urine, or pain in the pelvis, back or when urinating. A disease known as benign prostatic hyperplasia may produce similar symptoms. Other late symptoms may include feeling tired due to low levels of red blood cells.
