NEW DELHI: Aligarh Muslim University Centres were lacking funds, which in turn was affecting the education. A daily news “Rashtra Sahara” published about the lack of funds to bring it to the notice of the government.
A Congress MP Ahmed Hasan Imran demanded for funds for the centres of Muslim University to which 100 crore 99 lakh of help was accepted.
Funds would be given for the construction of boys and girls hostel at its Off Campus Centres at Mallapuram (Kerela) and Murshadabad (West Bengal).
Women’s College’s Principal Prof.Zakiya Ather Siddiqui on this occasion congratulated the Daily News “Rashtra Sahara” for publishing the article and succeeding in the intended purpose.
She also said, “it was the most crucial time and funds had become very necessary. Knowledge is the key to success and keeping that in mind women’s colleges were established but due to lack of Government’s care the centres had face poor conditions.But now since the Government has promised to fund such a huge amount we hope we succeed in our moto”.
Ex-head of Aligarh Muslim Association Prof. Mujahid Baig said, “Though it’s very late but finally Government has taken some step which will help the centers to a great extend. University centres had faced a lot due to the government and now since the present Government has promised to fund 100 crores 99 lakhs we hope the condition of the centres improve”.
“This news had spread joy amongst the students and created a ray of hope too.Education System for Minorities is very poor and this step will create some trust towards Government for the Minorities”, said social activist Mariyah Alim Umer.
Congress MP Ahmed Hasan Imran said that according to a research report Muslim’s education, jobs, employment in private and government firms have come to picture.
After the report the government has decided to work on the education of minorities. We do not understand what plans the present government has. On one side they promise to better the educational conditions for the minorities and accepts the application of 100 crores 99 lakhs and on the other side there is a huge fee hike for JNU where 40% of its student couldn’t even afford it.
