During the freedom struggle Muslims subjected to all kinds of cruelties
|Aligarh: Dr Shakeel Ahmad Samdani, law professor in Aligarh Muslim University said that Muslims took very active part in Indiaís freedom struggle and sacrificed their lives. After the 1857 rebellion, dead bodies of Muslims were seen hanging from the trees on every road from Meerut to Delhi. They were subjected to all kinds of brutalities and tortures for taking part in the rebellion. Hence Sir Syed Ahmad Khan came to the conclusion that Muslims cannot progress without education. With this idea in mind, he laid the foundation of this university where education and training were to be provided to them. But it is a pity that today there is no atmosphere of training in the hostels of this university because those who are supposed to impart training are lacking in it and they themselves need training because of which the university has slipped into moral and spiritual degeneration. Hence it is essential that teachers and instructors must provide moral education in their classes along with the education in accordance with the syllabus.
Dr Samdani expressed these words while delivering extension lecture in the Universityís Habeeb Hall sponsored by the Literary and Cultural Society on ĎAMUís role in the progress of Indian Muslimsí. He said that the university has played a very important role in spreading education among Muslims. Sir Syed had established Muslim Educational Conference with the objective of setting up a network of schools and colleges in every city, town and district. Though there are AMUís old boys associations in many cities inside and outside the country, there is acute shortage of such schools and colleges. q
