Farooq Bawani, Rajkot, Gujarat - Muslim Medical Students Directory

The previous five editions of this directory have helped in a big way in various ways. Aspiring doctors use it to get first hand information about medical colleges and its allied courses.  Students of different college find it helpful to collaborate through the information in the directory. Another interesting use of the directory is for matrimonial purposes. Parents of medical students take interest to find a similar soulmate for their children.

Similar directories may be brought out in other states by local organisations for the larger interests of the Muslim community. Copies of this directory are available for free. The Rajkot-based publisher of the directory Bawani hopes the initiative of Gujarati Muslims will inspire social workers of other states to come up with similar directories.  Bawani may be contacted at 098791-88179 /
