Aligarh: Releasing the Annual Hall magazine of Mohsinul Mulk Hall on 14 July, the Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, Prof. P. K. Abdul Azis said that the country needs more Aligarh Muslim universities and this institution has gained national reach by establishing its centres.

He said that replicating AMU is the new mission and it needs sustained and dedicated initiative. Prof. Azis said that villagers of Kishanganj in Bihar are crying for AMU Centre.

Prof. Azis said that Malappuram and Murshidabad centres have taken shape and now Bihar Government and people are offering land to establish an AMU Centre before he completes his tenure as the Vice Chancellor. He  said that during his recent visit to Kishanganj, Mr. Abu Affan Farooqui showed his spirit of nobility for the establishment of Kishanganj Centre while he was opposing it as a President of the AMU Students’ Union.

He said that Nawab Mohsinul Mulk was a close associate of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan. He said that he was highly impressed by the printing and content quality of the magazine. He also appreciated the role of the editorial board.

Presiding over the releasing ceremony, noted historian Prof. Irfan Habib said that we are responsible for our own backwardness. He pointed out that Muslims are much better than SC/ST materially but do not use their potential in the field of education.

Prof. Habib said that during his student life, he was also the editor of University English Magazine. He said that after partition, every third student of AMU was a refugee. Dr. Zakir Husain, the then Vice Chancellor, provided them accommodation in Ameen Hostel and they lived together. AMU Hockey Team defeated Punjab University.
