Hyderabad, January 07:

(Siasat News) In order to fulfill the aspirations of Urdu speakers and in compliance with the recommendations of Gujral Committee, Govt. of India established Urdu University in Hyderabad and named it after Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. Although this University was started but teaching material was not available for commencing the courses. Late professor Afzal Mohammed, Vice Chancellor of Ambedkar Open University. And Dr. Abdul Waheed Khan, Vice Chancellor of Indira Gandhi National Open University accorded permissions to use their teaching materials. According to the terms and conditions of memorandum of understanding the period of its usage has expired. Urdu University is not in a position to prepare teaching materials immediately for use.

Distance Education Council accords permission for offering B.A., B.S.c., B.Com and M.A. Courses through distance mode, it has cancelled this permission. In the same way, Council for Teacher Education grants permission for B.Ed and M.Ed. courses under Distance Education programme. Even this permission has been cancelled in 2007 due to non-fulfillment of their conditions.

In such a situation, all the degrees issued by Urdu University after 2007 stand derecognized. No university in the world including any Indian university does not recognize these degrees and consequently they won’t provide any educational or job opportunities to such graduates because these degrees have been derecognized. The students studying these courses are worried. They have apprehensions that their future would be dark. It may also affect admissions of Urdu University next year. The strength of the students may also come down.

Parents and guardians of the students have appealed to the authorities of Urdu University to restore the status or validity of these degrees as early as possible.

This is the time to show how

This is the time to show how sensitive is the govt of india to the question of minority education in the country - when it is allowing a university established by the GOI to decay, forcing its students to cry out in frustration, with any chances of securing employment getting nullified as the days go by. This also illustrates what an examplary job was done by the dept the translation dept of the Osmania University, which translated books of all disciplines from English to Urdu during the time of Hazrath Mir Osman Ali Khan. GOI needs to learn this same sense of commitment to education from the erstwhile Nizam and prove its credentials at least once, in this case.
