MANUU prepares to celebrate Jushne Maulana Azad in a big way

Hyderabad: Member of the Planning Commission and Chancellor of Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) Dr. Syeda Hameed on the eve of National Education Day said India has ignored the contributions made by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and has never tried to work on 'India' the great leader had envisioned and stood for his entire life.


"It is ironic that the country neither recognises Maulana Abul Kalaam Azad's contributions to the nation nor is it willing to work on the values the great leader had stood for", Dr. Syeda Hameed said while inaugurating the week-long program held at Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) in Hyderabad to commemorate the 122nd birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad.


"Maulana Azad's vision on a united nation is a masterpiece that can play major role in addressing many issues arising out of conflicts and violence today", she said while delivering the inaugural lecture on the life and vision of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad on November 08.


"But, it is a pity that we never tried to ponder on and get benefits from his teachings", she added.


Quoting from Maulana Azad's famous statement made in front of a British Magistrate, and those made on other occasions, Dr. Hameed said, "There are instances to show that Maulana Azad was aware of lot many things and problems at the time when people of his time had not even imagined them."


"It is time to study Maulana Azad afresh and Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) should take the lead to make it possible", she said.


Taking the discussion further, Vice Chancellor, Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) Prof. Mohammad Miya, who was presiding over the function, said, "During his tenure as first Education Minister of India from 1947-58, it was Maulana Azad who designed the education policy of the country and emphasised on the importance of modern and technical education."


The birth anniversary of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad that falls on November 11, has been declared as the National Education Day by the Indian government.


MANUU has organised the celebrations to mark the occasion titled as Jushne Maulana Azad from November 08 to 11. Students from different universities and colleges of the country are participating in these competitions that include symposia, essay-writing and elocution competitions, and debate focusing various aspects of Maulana Azad's life.


Besides these competitions, the university has also planned exhibition of selected books written on Maulana Azad, screening of documentary film made on the legendary leader, Sham-e-Ghazal, Hazal Goi competition and Mushairah to commemorate the great Indian leader.
