actually there is no yes or no to this. i do give alms to the homeless and needy, but I also know that they are the ones who are better off than me. They have so many kids, all abegging, that their daily income is huge. At times I feel like not giving alms and I dont. Sometimes the head rules the heart and vice versa.

Of cause it is right, you know the people in trouble need the money to afford their family or themselves. But there are some people don't want to work, though they have the ability to make money, they always younger and stong. I don't want to give money to them. For those old homeless people, I will give money to them because they need it.

no we should not give money to them as they use it improperly, instead we need to create employment for them and make them earn form hardwork and live a happy life, what do you have to comment on this?

Homeless - Arabs, Turks invaded Bangladesh in 1200 AD. They introduced new faith. In other words, said "our faith is better than yours". Many people accepted the humiliaton anyway. This cultural aggression divided brothers. People of home-grown faiths were alienated mainly after '47 when British India was divided and Pakistan was formed. They were compelled to leave BD for India and 30% Hindu population in '47 has become 10% now. In recorded history there is hardly any evidence of such a large-scale forced migration.
Intolerance religious ideology along with increasing poverty and govt's unwillingness to handle it has made the situation worse. People who are loyal to the culture and tradition of this land are being discriminated for being so and are now planning to migrate to a safer place for survival. Increasing Islamic fundamentalism and intolerance have made others to feel aliens in their ancestral home.
There are many such ill-fated groups of people in this world. Lets share our pain and make this world free.
I guess yes, we should help the homeless peoples as much as we can:-) they are quite needable of help.
