Regulatory body for small scale BUSINESS
Aligarh: The Centre for Promotion of Educational and Cultural Advancement of Muslims of India, AMU, Aligarh organised a two-day national seminar on the theme "Muslim artisans, craftsmen, trade: issue in entrepreneurship" on February 20-21.
Abu Saleh Sharif, chief economist National Council of Applied Economic Research, New Delhi said that Muslims are risk takers and therefore they can contribute a lot to the national economy in the age of globalisation. Muslims should accept modern day’s interest and should not consider it as anti-Islamic, as it is no more related to exploitation, he urged. Since 90% of Muslims are working in the unorganised small scale sector "house hold sector", the government must establish a regulatory body to oversee economic activities of this vital organ of our economy. Regulation of small scale money-lending will go a long way in this regard. Every Muslim particularly girls should at least study up to class 7, he said.

PLAN FOR SHEIKHUL HIND LIBRARY IN DEOBAND
