Malegaon: A two day National level conference to discuss challenges, solutions and importance of linking Madaris to mainstream education is set to kick start at Mansoora Educational Complex in Malegaon Saturday November 25.
"The idea to link Madaris with mainstream education is not new. But, in the present national and international scenario it has become important for all of us to work on the issue with renewed determination and finout a solution.
“It is with this motive Jamia Mohammadiya Education Society is organising this two day national conference”, Arshad Mukhtar, president of the society, said while talking to ummid.com
“Experts, academicians, scholars and thinkers from various places of the country will sit together during this conference and discuss challenges and importance of linking Madaris to modern education system , besides assessing the present status of the Madaris in India”, he added.
Jamia Mohammadiya Education Society was established by Maulana Mukhtar Ahemad Nadvi, renowned scholar and author who in the year 1976-77 revised the century-old Madrasa syllabus and established Jamia Mohammadia Mansoora for Boys in 1978 and Kulliya Aisha Siddiqa for Girls after two years. He was the first to introduce a new syllabus embeded with religious and modern and scientific subjects to be taught in these two Madaris.
The Madrasa syllabus revised and introduced by Maulana Mukhtar Ahemad Nadvi proved so instrumental for the students that they soon became eligible for admission to Jamia Islamia Madinah Munawwera in Saudi Arabia. Year 2009 was a landmark year for Jamia Mohammadia Mansoora when 18 of its students ranked from 1st to 18 positions in the Jamia Islamia Madinah Merit List.
Few years after establishing Jamia Mohammadia Mansoora for Boys and Kulliya Aisha Siddiqa for Girls, Maulana Mukhtar Ahemad Nadvi established Mohammadiya Tibbiya College and Assayer Hospital, which soon became a pioneer and leading name in the field of unani medical system.
Arshad Mukhtar took over the reins of the society after his father Maulana Mukhtar Ahmed's demise in 2007. Taking forward the dream of his father to establish an Education Campus where Islamic and Modern Education systems rule together, he established Maulana Mukhtar Ahemad Nadvi Technical Campus (MMANTC) in June 2010.
“The conference will start with the inaugural session to be held at Ash-Shae Auditorium Saturday morning. Former Inspector General of Police Karnataka U Nisar Ahmed (IPS) will deliver the keynote address at the two day educational conference which will conclude with a valedictory session on Sunday November 26, 2017", Arshad Mukhtar said.
Former top cop Nisar Ahmed founded National Centre for Research and Development (NCRD) after retirement. Besides working as NCRD Chairman, Nisar Ahmed is also associated with various platforms working for the empowerment of poor and downtrodden, especially the Muslims.
Established sometimes in 2010, the key objective of the National Centre for Research and Development (NCRD) is to understand socio-economic problems, to analyse the social and economic changes and to suggest directions on issues relating to education, health human resources, welfare & poverty alleviation, governance, communalism, gender discrimination, ethics and morality.
Presently limiting its activities in Karnataka, mainly the state capital Bengaluru, NCRD acts as a ‘Think Tank’ and help translate its goals and objectives into tangible reform outcomes.
