Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Preacher of Peace and Harmony

Aligarh: While delivering the Maulana Abul Kalam Azad memorial lecture here on Friday, eminent Historian and Professor Emeritus, Prof. Irfan Habib said that Maulana Abul Kalam Azad's support for modern scientific education, as Minister was uncompromising and that is the precious legacy he has left for us.


The lecture was organized by AMU's Department of Education on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Maulana Azad which is celebrated nationwide as National Education Day.

Prof. Habib highlighted the complex factors that shaped Abul Kalam’s mind on his journey “from religion to secular nationalism”.


He held views that present abolition of school examinations and encouragement of self-financing institutions is laying the basis of an increased monopoly of education for the rich.

Prof. P.K. Abdul Azis, Vice Chancellor, Aligarh Muslim University pointed out that the educational policies need a review and emphasize that University has a crucial role to play in order to ensure improved teaching and research so as to serve the people and the nation better.


Prof. Azis said that the country made a tremendous progress in the field of science and technology after the independence and we are self-dependent in the field of agriculture with the help of domestic education.


He urged the academic community to produce good scientists, historians and academicians in the campus and asked the students to pay more attention towards their studies.

Prof. C.P.S. Chauhan, former Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences said that Maulana Azad had a very challenging task to start the education from zero.

Prof. Nabi Ahmad, Chairman, Department of Education said that the role of Maulana Azad as Education Minister will be remembered in Indian history forever.


He said that the dream which was seen by Maulana Azad was fulfilled today in the form of Right to Education Bill.

Dr. Nighat Nasrin conducted the programme. Prof. Anwer Jahan Zubeiri, Dean, Faculty of Social Science and senior faculty members graced the occasion.
