'Education alone can get Muslims back on the right track'

PA Inamdar, Chairman of Azam Campus, Pune addressing the AMP convention on June 16, 2012

Mumbai: Commending the efforts taken by the Association of Muslim Professionals for Muslim students, experts on Saturday urged the Muslim community to realise the importance of education and acquire higher education if it wants to break the present impasse.


"Education alone can get the Muslims in India back on the right track", MM Ansari - former Information Commissioner and one of the Kashmir interlocutors said while addressing the Muslim professionals.


MM Ansari was addressing the opening session of the two-day convention of Muslim professionals on Saturday. The convention is organised by the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) at Lonavala near Mumbai.


Stating that poverty is one of the major reasons for school dropouts, he said, "We should make it sure that no student drops out of school merely because he or she doesn't have enough financial resources."


"We have talents and skills. But poverty is proving to be major hurdle for the community. We should all jointly work to get rid of this obstacle", he said.


Echoing similar feelings, Chairman of Azam Campus, Pune PA Inamdar said that acquiring higher education can lead the community to newer heights and to the targets we have set.


"We talk about the need to eradicate poverty. We discuss the importance of a financially stronger community. But, we forget to focus on higher education. Higher education is the key to achieve these targets", Inamdar said in his address.


Earlier, Aamir Idrisi, president of the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) in his address gave brief introduction of the organisation. He said that the Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) is a registered national, community based, non-profit organization run by Muslim professionals to share their knowledge, intellect, experience and skills for the overall development of the Muslim Community.

“This is a historic moment for AMP which every member will cherish and remember for long. AMP has been working diligently since last 5 years wherein it has significantly grown by leaps and bounds and being a registered organization with more than 17000 members and 50 AMP active chapters all over India is in itself is a testimony of the progress we have made so far", he said.


"This reflects the eagerness of our professional brethren to serve the community and the ingrained spirit for community work is the prime reason for our progress", he added.

"Now with the presence of AMP Chapters across India a need has been felt to synchronize and share the experiences and knowledge between our various teams and the core AMP Team. Hence we have decided to call an All India Convention where members from different chapters can participate and discuss/share their views on various initiatives taken by AMP", he said.


The two-day convention would conclude tomorrow.
