Aligarh Muslim University National Centres: A Beginning of Resurgence

Malegaon: What can be a better demand on the occasion of the International Women's Day than asking for a University Campus to empower them with higher education. And this is what exactly hundreds of girl students in Malegaon did in response to a survey done by on March 08.


An overwhelming number of the girl students from various schools and colleges in Malegaon when asked about their priorities on the occasion of the International Women's Day said, they want the government to give nod to the establishment of the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) off campus centre in this Muslim dominated textile town struggling since years to come out of the trauma it under went due to the series of communal conflict and two deadly terrorists attacks.


"On this occasion, we urge the government to grant us the permission to establish Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) off campus centre in Malegaon. This will perhaps compensate the loss we have incurred due to several riots and terrorist attacks that were staged in the city to keep us marginalized", responded more than 95% of the girl students, who took part in the survey conducted by on Women's Day.


Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is establishing its off campus centre in five states of the country including Maharashtra. Though the effort to get the centre in Malegaon is on since 2008, it received support from different corners after the tragic death of Yeshwant Sonawane - the top government official, who a day before he met with his tragic fate on January 25, 2011 had submitted to the government the proposal confirming availability of the land in Malegaon for the purpose. on the occasion of the International Women's Day asked the girl students at JAT Arts, Sc and Commerce College, Sardar B.Ed College, Mohammadia Tibbia College, ATT High Schoold & Jr College and Malegaon Girls' College about their priorities on the occasion. Majority of them spoke about lack of opportunities in the town for higher education.


"People say Muslim girls are not interested in education. The fact is that most of us drop out because we do not have the opportunities here in Malegaon for further education", said Sahrina Tehseen, firs year student of computer science. 


"If the government gives nod to the establishment of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) off campus centre in Malegaon, like the girls in other regions it will open the door of higher education for us also", she said.


Some of the girls on the occasion expected from the government a better advertising policy and coordination for its minority welfare schemes.


"First of all, we are informed about the government schemes and scholarships very late. Then we do not have any mean to follow up about the status. The result is that we just do not know when the scholarship amounts would be transferred in our accounts", said Falak Naaz, a second year student of BUMS.


The quota for Unani doctors in government hospitals was also in the minds of some students and they appealed the government to consider their long pending demand.


"The government has reserved quota for ayurvedic and other doctors. There is no such facility for Unani doctors. On this occasion, we demand from the government to extend the same facility to us also", Dr. Aisha Shaikh of Mohammadia Tibbia College said.
