New Delhi: Muslim students and youths should go for higher education and develop character to face life's challenges, a senior Muslim religious leader said Sunday.

"The Muslim community is facing huge challenges. It is the duty of Muslim students and youths to equip themselves through various kinds of education and morality," Mufti Mohammad Mukarram Ahmad said.

The Shahi Imam of the 17th-century Fatehpuri Masjid in Old Delhi was addressing a gathering of Muslim student bodies.

The student organisations held a seminar here under the banner of the Federation of Islamic Youth Organisations.

The delegations from across the country discussed ways to empower Muslim youths in various fields and to develop leadership qualities.

"We have to show to the people through our words and deeds that we are a progressive, educated and peaceful community and can lead the nation," the Mufti said.

The convener of FIYO, Abidur Rahman, asked Muslim students and youths to battle illiteracy and immorality.
