Impartiality in scholarships?
|I am a subscriber and reader of MG since its inception and hold the paper in high esteem. However I was shocked to read the announcement inserted by the Trustees of Muslim Education Trust for the Scholarships for the year 2002-03, wherein the Trustees have sidelined numerous deserving students from Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra, Tamil Nadu, Karala, Goa and Kashmir and debarred them from applying for the scholarships for the reasons best known to them.
May I ask these worthies as to what are the reasons/ grounds on which they have systematically eliminated students from the above referred states from applying for the scholarships or do they think that there are no poor and deserving students in these states?
I felt dejected on reading the announcement. of MET (16-31 August) This year is the most traumatic in the life of students from Gujarat State and see how brazenly, inhumanly and in an insensible manner these trustees have treated the students of Gujarat, who I think, were most deserving candidates for all possible help. The people like these trustees and their narrow mindedness and sectarian thinking only makes the talk of Muslim brotherhood hollow, a joke and eyewash by clearly dividing their own brothers (if they think so), on geographical basis and deprive deserving candidates from benefits.
I condemn all the Trustees of Muslim Education Trust. I also disapprove your act of publishing such a sectarian announcement in MG which deserved an outright rejection.
Till the tribes of the Trustees of MET are alive all the talks of Muslim brotherhood and Muslim unification in this country will remain on paper only.
