AWARDS FOR BRILLIANT STUDENTS
Results of 10th and 12th classes i.e. Secondary and Senior Secondary Board examinations of Delhi’s Urdu medium and Muslim schools have not yet been announced. When the results are declared, awards will be given to brilliant students. However, we are happy that results of 9th and 11th classes of two such schools viz Crescent School, Darya Ganj and Shafeeq Memorial School, Bara Hindu Rao have been sent to us.
First result is from Crescent School, Darya Ganj, New Delhi whose principal, Mrs Tamkeen Alwi has sent us the list of 6 first divisioners of 9th and 3 of 11th classes along with her letter of 7 April. We immediately sent awards to all these 9 first divisioners of both classes. These students include both Hindus and Muslims, boys and girls. The principal promptly sent us receipts also from these 9 award winners along with her letter of 5 May.
Another school, in addition to Crescent School is Shafeeq Memorial School, Bara Hindu Rao, Delhi as stated above. The principal of this school, Sibghatulla Siddiqi along with his letter of 26 April sent us the results of 9th and 11th classes together with a list 8 of first divisioners of 9th and 8 first divisioners of 11th class also. We immediately sent awards to all these 16 first divisioners of both classes. The principal of this school also promptly sent us receipts from these 16 award winners along with his letter of 30 April in token of these students having received the awards.
The objective of giving these awards to brilliant students is not to win personal gain or fame but it is given with double objective, firstly of encouraging these students to perform still better in future and secondly to provide incentive to those students who have not been given the awards to work harder so that they also could secure good positions and win awards. The ultimate objective is to create awareness about education and make their future bright.
Moreover, the objective of our scheme of giving awards does not end here. It is only a part of our scheme. Equally important objective of our scheme is to appreciate the hard and sincere work of our teachers without whose efforts and valuable guidance the students cannot achieve much success. So we give awards to them also in acknowledgment of their hard work and devotion to duty which enabled students to distinguish themselves; but awards will be given to them after seeing the results of Secondary and Senior Secondary Board results.

RS 15 LAKH FOR COMPUTERS IN MADRASAS
Lucknow: In order to bring madrasas to mainstream Uttar Pradesh Government has for the first time given Rs 15 lakh from Madrasa Development Fund to 26 madrasas for computer education and construction of rooms for it. State minister for minorities development, Haji Yaqoob Qureshi said on 4 June. In view of the importance of computer education the scheme is being run in madrasas, he said. For proper development of Arabic and Persian madrasas, an Arabic-Persian Development Fund has already been established, he said. So far books worth Rs 40000 have been given to libraries through this fund, Qureshi said. In order to make the procedure of recognition of middle and upper middle madrasas easy the facility has been provided on district level. While recognition of higher secondary madrasas would be made by the Directorate of Minorities Development, he said. Qureshi added the proposal to recognise registered madrasas soon is under considerate. It is also being considered to register all those unregistered madras which fulfill the conditions laid by the government.
POLICE DESECRATES MOSQUE
Kerana: Tension prevailed in Kerana tehsil of Muzaffarnagar after police allegedly desecrated a mosque. According to information Mahboob Qureshi was wanted by the police. When Haryana police along with Kerana police arrived at Mahboob’s house, he wasn’t found there. Mahboob’s family could not recognise the policemen as they were in civil dresses. The family told the police that Mahboob had gone to offer namaz in Darbar Masjid. Upon getting this information, the police reached there and entered the mosque wearing shoes and abusing Mahboob. When people objected to it the police picked some prayer-mats including the one of the imam and arrested Mahboob. It is said that Mahboob was wanted by Haryana police in an animal theft case.

The book is divided into four chapters.

He called Nanautwi a great intellectual of the century.
NEED TO EDUCATE MUSLIM GIRLS
Saharanpur: Educating a boy is to educate an individual, while educating a girl amounts to educating a family. This was stated by Syeda Sultana, principal of Muslim Girls Inter College. She was speaking at the annual function of the College. Stressing the need for girls education, she said a community whose girls are educated makes progress in every sphere of life. Educating Muslim girls is the pressing need of the hour. She expressed her happiness over the result of the college. She said it was due to the efforts of teachers and students’ academic interest that the college had given 97 percent results which is an example in itself.
Pramod Kumar Yadav, inspector of schools congratulated the college committee and staff for the results and said a community devoid of education remains backward in every sphere of life. Good education is a basic human need to lead a good life, he said. He assured every assistance to the college.
College manager Haji Irfan Ansari informed that 179, out of 186 girls who appeared in the intermediate examinations were successful. The number of girls who secured first division is 77 while 102 students passed with second division, he said.
MUSLIMS SHOULD COME OUT OF PREJUDICE
Howrah: Shivpur Anjuman Library in collaboration with the Shivpur cell of West Bengal Anjuman Taraqqui-e-Urdu organised a reception in honour of educationist and litterateur Mubarak Kapri recently. In his inaugural speech MA Qasim Alig said that there are 130 science professors in New College of Tamil Nadu. There are many such colleges of Muslims in South India, he said. Their success story lies in their integrity, sincerity and struggle, he said.
Kapri said Muslims complain that they are treated with bias. Where in the world are minorities not treated with bias?, he questioned. You have to work hard in that atmosphere to achieve success, he suggested. He gave the example of Muslim students of Maharashtra. He said for the last few years Muslim boys and girls have been securing distinction marks in Maharashtra Maddhyamic examinations. Do you think they do it so easily?, he asked. We have taught our students to come out of prejudice to achieve progress and they have been doing it and are successful. Our students are also faring well in colleges and universities. Behind their success lies their struggle and our efforts. We have changed the mentality of Urduwallas. Earlier they used to spend money for listening qawwalis and mushairas, now they purchase tickets to listen to academic lectures for hours, Kapri said. If Muslims of North India follow the same principle, they won’t lag behind, he said. Hearken we must!
