Mere words without action will be “dishonesty”, claims a doctoral student of AMU
By Mumtaz Ahmad Numani,
On October 17, 2014, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) celebrated the 197th birth anniversary of its founder Sir Syed Ahmad Khan. The celebration is always meant to be symbolic to recall and remind ourselves his powerful vision and mission. Can we exactly recall what is it that we commemorate? Most probably yes. It is after all, ‘education’. It is/was the education of political, social, economic and cultural studies to enlighten the citizens, but more than that ‘Muslims’ of the sub-continent.
