Seminar on Maulana Azad

Aligarh: The government should incorporate Maulana Abul Kalam Azad’s ideas into its policies as he not only helped in freeing the country from the British yoke but also framed the educational policy of independent India, said President of Sir Syed Awareness Forum, Dr. Shakeel Samdani of AMU while speaking in a seminar organised by Noor Jan Seva Samiti at Madarsa Muskan here.

Dr Samdani said that whatever promises were made by Maulana Azad to the Muslims must be implemented by the central government. Similarly, in the educational plan of modern India the Muslim community should also be involved in the same way as was desired by Maulana.

Addressing the huge gathering of students and parents, he said that the difference between an educated and uneducated person is like a fruit-laden tree and a barren tree. A tree laden with fruits gives benefit to others and in return everybody takes care of it. But a tree devoid of fruits doesn’t give any benefit to anybody and that’s why it is not cared by anone. The same kind of difference is found between literate and illiterate people. Dr. Shakeel Samdani further said that money is not the only consideration for education. By education a person learns etiquettes and culture. He can easily distinguish between good and bad.
