Society is incomplete without knowledge -
Milli Gazette Online
New Delhi: The week-long training programme of madrasa teachers sponsored by Hamdard Education Society ended on 18 May in New Delhi. The topic of the concluding session of the programme was ‘Promotion of culture through education system’. Chief guest, Dr Abu Saleh Shariff addressing the teachers said that madrasas and mosques can be used for social networking and performing important tasks. We should not allow the utility of these institutions to be wasted, he added.
President of Hamdard Education Society, Saiyid Hamid said in his valedictory speech that religious education is most important among all subjects but knowledge about religion can be popularised and promoted through temporal knowledge. He said that if morality and good behaviour are linked with faith and belief, moral behaviour improves as well and one begins to believe that a pious and virtuous life is equivalent to prayers. He cited an English proverb to prove his point that knowledge is power and power can never be acquired without knowledge and that a society is considered incomplete and under developed without knowledge.
Many speakers addressed the programme. Dr Muzammil Husain Qasmi spoke about the elements of a syllabus. Dr Mohammad Jameel, a cardiologist spoke about health and preventive measures for a healthy life.
