AMU Vice Chancellor welcomed at Women’s College


Aligahr: “No society or country can progress without empowering women and no change in the direction and condition of Muslim community can be envisaged without the educational development of its women”, said the Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, Zameeruddin Shah while addressing the felicitation programme at the century-old Women’s College.

Shah said that his emphasis will be on providing better academic and residential facilities to the women students of the University so that they are able to enjoy a dignified position in the society. He said he considered the girl students of the University as his daughters and this is why he started addressing them with the prefix of ‘my daughters’.

The Vice Chancellor observed that Islam gave special regard to the womenfolk and he wished that the female students of the University contributed in spreading enlightenment. He urged the girls to pay special attention to English language and get acquainted with spoken English as it was the basic qualification to get on par with others in the current career market. He said that Indian labourers learn to speak Arabic within a few months when they go to Saudi Arabia, then why cannot they learn speaking in English fluently. He said that he has initiated upgradation in library and dining hall facilities for female students.
