DREAM OF A FREE INDIA NOT FULFILLED"
Deoband: Member of UP legislative assembly Sanjay Garg said here recently that as long as the old values and traditions of national unity were alive, there would be no danger to the country’s integrity.

It is the crying need of the hour to combat communalism", he added.

URDU UNIVERSITY A MIRACLE
Hyderabad: During his recent visit to Maulana Azad National Urdu University, Prof Afzal Muhammad, educationist and former vice-chancellor of Dr BR Ambedkar Open University said here recently that he felt proud of the grand building of the university. A huge building, appointments, admission of thousand of students, a unique position and a net work of study centres throughout the country within five years was no less than a miracle.
After making a round of the building, meeting staff members and conducting a close survey of various departments of the university, he wrote down his impressions in the university record book. He observed that it was made possible because of talents, determination, farsightedness, mental elevation and a leading personality of Prof Shamim Jairajpuri who did almost an impossible job.
Calling it fulfillment of the dreams of Urdu lovers he remarked that the university could vie with any developed university of the country within five years if its pace of progress remained the same. He urged people to keep in mind the national character of a university as Urdu was not the local or religious language of a particular people.
He suggested building of a standard infrastructure and a good campus atmosphere in the beginning itself as these were not done again and again.
