Iqbal Ansari joins Hamdard University as visiting professor

Iqbal AnsariIqbal A. Ansari has recently joined Hamdard University’s Centre for Federal Studies as a visiting professor. Prof Ansari earlier served the Aligarh University for 33 years and retired as professor of English in 1995.

Since his retirement Prof Ansari has been engaged in research and publication as well as activism in the area of human rights, especially of minorities and Muslims. The first book edited by him, Muslim Situation in India, for the Institute of Objective Studies (IOS) came out in 1989. The two volumes, Readings on Minorities Perspective and Documents (1996) edited by him are considered to be pioneering source books on minorities in the country. Under the auspices of the Minorities Council, of which he is the founder secretary general, he prepared the book Communal riots, the State & law in India (1977).

In 1998 came out two books: Human Rights in India: Some Issues and Concept of Man: in comparative perspective. In 1999, Prof Ansari prepared the ‘Report on Communal Riots: Prevention & Control for the National Commission for Minorities,’ which was adopted by the commission and sent to the Union and state governments for action. Vol. III on Minorities is in the press while a volume on freedom of religion is under preparation.

As visiting professor he is planning to work on the adequate protection of the minority right to education, language and culture, in accordance with international norms.

Prof Iqbal Ansari is associated with several international and national human rights organizations including the Amnesty International, the PUCL & CFD. He also edits the quarterly Human Rights Today. He is leaving shortly for UK and USA, to attend a meeting of the newly established International Muslim Association for Inter-Religious Relations.

Prof Ansari also proposes to study and interact with Amnesty International, Minority Rights Group and the Commission for Racial Equality, all based in London.
