Dr Ehtesham Ahmad Khan, HoD Dept. of Mass Communication & Journalism, presented an introduction of the guest speaker.

While elaborating on Maulana Azad’s role in the freedom struggle and his unwavering stand on Hindu-Muslim unity, Naqvi said Maulana was one of the two Congress leaders besides Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, also known as the Frontier Gandhi, who opposed the partition of the country till the last even when their colleagues in the party had agreed to the same.

He further urged the students to read history as it has great relevance in the current political dynamics of the country. He, however, reminded them this is not a time to get emotional but to read and analyse the past dispassionately and learn from the mistakes our forefathers have committed.


Naqvi advised the students to especially read Maulana Azad as “his prophecies about the political future of the subcontinent are coming true one after the other.”

VC MANUU professor Mohammad Miyan in his presidential address said that students should acquire modern education.
