Seminar on education at Sikar

Sikar: BBC and Asian Age journalist Narayan Bareth called upon religious minorities to broad-base their struggle for development by taking together other deprived communities like Dalits of the country. He was addressing a seminar on “Importance of Education” organized by “Bazm-e-ahbab” which is run by the Muslim community of Sikar city of Rajasthan.

In an emotional style amidst incessant applauds, he drew a difference between  “Bharat”, a country of poor and have-nots, and India, a country of corporate, politicians and mafia. Outlining the importance of education, he attributed the low level of education as a cause of under-development in all spheres of life of Muslims. The seminar was also addressed by Dr. Iqraz Nabi Khan, campus Director of Balaji Group of Engineering Institutions, Jaipur. Dr. Khan elaborated various avenues of career matching with the level of education of students.

The seminar was attended by Muslims of entire Shekhawati belt comprising of Sikar, Jhunjhunu, Churu and Nagaur districts of Rajasthan which included students, parents and social workers. (Ashafaque Kayamkhani)
