Mushawarat discusses Muslim education
New Delhi: Muslim Majlis-e-Mushwarat (Qasmi group) organised a national colloquium on May 15 in the auditorium of New Horizon School, New Delhi. The Mushwarat welcomed the setting up of national commission established for the promotion of the educational institutions of the Muslims but emphasized on the need for expanding its framework.
The participants observed that the Muslims lagged behind other communities in educational and economic spheres and that government of India should take effective measures to solve the problems of Muslims.
In his presidential remarks, Maulana Muhammad Salim Qasmi, president of the Mushwarat stressed on the need for devoting best efforts for the propagation and promotion of education among Muslims. He added that compartmentalization of education was a plot hatched by those who had launched a cold war against Islam.
Dr Abu Sualeh Sharief, a well-known economist said that the Act recently passed by the government on the educational institutions of the minorities had many shortcomings. One of the shortcomings was that five out of six universities scheduled for affiliation as minority institutions of higher learning were situated in Assam and the border areas.
General secretary of the Mushawarat, Maulana Kairanvi was of the view that the Muslims backwardness in economic, educational and political spheres needed to be done away with. He regarded the formation of the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions as a welcome measure but emphasised the need for expanding its framework and powers vested in it.
BEHAVIOUR OF Governor’s SECRETARY
New Delhi: Chairman of Baqa-e Insaniyat Trust Nooruddin Khan in a press release has expressed concern over the impolite behaviour of PV Rao, additional and private secretary of Delhi’s Lt. Governor.

Governor to kindly spare some time for him to discuss the problems of non-availability of mosques, graveyard etc and some other problems of Muslim population of places like Tughlaqabad, Kalkaji, Tehkhand, Okhla Phases I And II, Lal Kuan, DDA flats, Sangam Vihar, but his Addl. and Private Secretary not only insulted him by using impolite language but also asked him to get out by saying that the Lt. Governor does not talk on these issues and hence no time can be given to him.
Nooruddin Khan has now requested the hon’ble Lt. Governor to take immediate action against such officials because it is not only his personal insult, but of the Muslim society by ignoring their problems. He has also requested the Lt. Governor to kindly grant some time at his convenience to the representatives of the Trust to bring these problems to his kind notice. It is also stated for the information of Lt. Governor that this Trust is engaged in social activities for the past 25 years.
