Dr. Saeed Farani delivering the presidential address on

the final day of the conference in Malegaon

“We are creating a good number of doctors, engineers, teachers and professionals. But where are the high moral values?” asked Dr. Saeed Farani before adding, “Moral and human values are hard to find in professionals nowadays. We have miserably failed in making them a good human being.” Dr. Farani, a well known surgeon known for his out of box thinking was delivering the presidential address on December 28 at the final session of the two-day Educational Conference in Malegaon. A Large number of people thronged the plush Mansoora Auditorium for the conference which was jointly organized by Jamia Mohammadia Education Society and local Urdu daily Shaamnama.


“I urge every teacher who has come for this conference to spare at least two minutes in the class to preach their students the importance of high moral values so that along with becoming an expert in their subject they become a good human being also.”, he requested.


Agreeing with Dr. Farani, the renowned Educationalist Mubarak Kapdi reasoned, “For forty years after the independence our education policy was revolving around Moscow. For the next ten years it was influenced by the West. It is in fact because of this that while we got good number of doctors, engineers and professionals, we failed to create the desired moral values essential for a civilized society in them.”


Stating that it took us ten long years to realize the danger, Mubarak Kapdi wondered the way the policy makers forcibly introduced moral values in the syllabus, Mubarak Kapdi said, “What can be more ironic than the fact that the values that are supposed to be practiced by the students in their daily life are being taught in the classes as a subject.”


In a sarcastic tone he said that the education system in India had failed in yielding the desired results. “It is unfortunate that like the political system, the education system in the country too is marred by the failures”, he said adding, “I assert with utmost responsibility that the education policy in our country is a total failure.” He however, in an attempt to keep the hopes alive suggested various means and strategies for improving the quality level. He also demonstrated various teaching methodologies for effective and result oriented coaching.  


Earlier inaugurating the final day of the two-day conference that ended at 05:00 in the evening on December 28, Shaikh-ul-Jamia of the Jamia Mohammadia Mansoora, Dr. Fazlur Rehman Madni, emphasized the importance of quality education. “Education is the key. There should not be any compromise on its quality.”


In his closing remarks Secretary of Jamia Mohammadia Education Society Arshad Mukhtar, the man who had floated the idea of hosting this conference, urged the audience that included college and school teachers in large numbers to successfully implement the guidelines and plans devised during the conference.
