Malegaon: Renowned Islamic scholar, educationist and Member of Parliament, Maulana Asrarul Haq Qasmi has urged the students of AMU to come forward for spreading education in the same manner as the founder of this institution, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan had embarked upon establishing AMU to eliminate darkness of ignorance.


Mualana Asrarul Haque was addressing the prize distribution ceremony of All India Sir Syed Memorial Debate organized by Literary Club of General Education Center.


According to AMU spokesperson, Zeeshan Ahmad, Maulana Asrarul Haq Qasmi said that today knowledge has become a power and we have responsibilities to spread it among masses. He pointed out that whole world is accepting the power of youths. Our prime responsibility is to give a proper direction to this power.


He said that through debate competitions a positive thinking could be developed among youth, which may be used for constructive purposes. Referring to Aligarh Muslim University, Maulana Qasmi said that the institution has been working on character building along with imparting formal education to the students since Sir Syed’ days and students of this University have brought laurels not only in the country but on international level.


Maulana Qasmi said that a perfect debater understands his soul and respects views of others, which is a pre-requisite for a civilized society. He said that India would emerge as a super power by 2020 and there will be branches of AMU working simultaneously all over the country.


AMU Vice Chancellor Professor P. K. Abdul Azis said that General Education Center is a hub of literary and cultural activities in the University where emphasis is made on personality development of students. He said AMU could become a centre of knowledge only if the students studied hard and gave their full cooperation in maintaining peace in the campus. He said that students passing out from this university are registering their talents not only in country but also in foreign countries. The Vice Chancellor pointed out that a good debater must have knowledge and wisdom.


Senior Journalist Wadood Sajid said that Aligarh is the largest door of enlightenment and he feels honored to be here. He appealed to the students to take part in competitions not only to win prizes but also for the sake of participation as it is also a way of training. He called upon them to play an active role in nation building.


Addressing the programme, the Dean, Students’ Welfare, Professor Ainul Haq Khan said that students of AMU are extremely talented. He said that we should always remember teachings of Sir Syed and more programmes should be organized in his honor. He said that debate competitions develop power of expression and improves one’s life style.


The Coordinator of General Education Center, Dr. Shakeel Samdani said that teams from 20 Universities have participated in the two-day debate competition. He said that organization of such programmes could be possible only because of the peaceful atmosphere and the credit for this goes to the Vice Chancellor, Professor, P.K. Abdul Azis. He apprised the audience of the efforts of Maulana Asrarul Haq Qasmi in the establishment of AMU special center in Kishanganj, Bihar.


The Secretary of Literary Club, Shad Ahmad presented annual report and informed the audience about success of members of various clubs. He said that an Urdu Development Forum has also been established in order to help students acquaint themselves with Urdu. The Organizing Secretary of Debate Competition, Osama Khan announced names of winners and Nayyar Rehman conducted the programme.


The overall Sir Syed Memorial Debate Trophy went to the team of Jamia Hamdard, New Delhi.


In Hindi debate, first prize was awarded to Amit Tripathi and Amrendra Kumar Mishra of Gorakhpur University whereas second prize went to Hitesh Bahrani and Vishambhar Tiwari of Devi Ahilya University, Indore.
