Fifty percent quota for poor girls in Milli Girls School
Kishan Ganj: Maulana Asrarul Haque Qasmi, distinguished community leader and president of All India Talimi wa Milli Foundation laid the foundation stone of a girls hostel on January 8 on the campus of Milli Girls School, an English medium and CBSE affiliated school, in Talimabad, Kishanganj, North Bihar. Addressing a large gathering of people including ulama and intellectuals he said that education guarantees bright future of a community and nation and illiteracy brings about their downfall. It is only through education that religious consciousness can be created and intellectual and reasoning faculties can be developed and safeguarded.
He added that in this backward area from the point of view of women’s education, Milli Girls School and its hostel will be helpful in promoting education among women. The
poor Muslim girls from distant rural areas of Bihar and especially from Purnia district where there is a large Muslim population will get an opportunity of receiving good education and training here. He said that in the Girls Hostel special arrangements would be made for religious education. There were already special periods for religious education in the school but it would be increased by providing religious education in hostels.
Islamic quiz competitions and examination in theology are part of the curricula of the school. Especial attention would be paid to implement these programmes after the hostel is completed and becomes operational. Besides, 50 percent seats would be reserved for poor girl students from rural areas in the school to popularise education.
Principal of the School, Jamal Sayeed, presented a 3-year report on the progress of school. The registration for admission to the hostel for the new academic year has been started.
