Education is key for Muslim Empowerment, speakers urged during AFMI Indore Caucus

Career Fest Vision 2015 received Overwhelming response

Mumbai: The year began with Muslim scholars from India and abroad agreeing during the American Federation of Muslims of Indian Origin (AFMI) caucus in Indore that the key to Muslim empowerment is the Education and the power of writing. About, a week after this spectacular convention when a different set of scholars converge at The Career Festival 2010 in Mumbai, they stressed on the same message.


“Acquiring education has already been made compulsory by the government. Also, the government has planned a huge amount for this purpose. The poor, marginal and backward communities should grab this opportunity and meticulously work so that their kin get the quality education”, Member of Planning Commission, New Delhi Dr. Bhalchandra Mangekar said while inaugurating the three-day Career Festival at Alma Latifi Hall, Saboo Siddique Polytechnic in Mumbai on January 08, 2010.


“It doesn’t require any further elaboration that, unlike others the Muslim community in India is miserably lacking in education. Unless and forthwith, the community and its leaders jointly work on a suitable and time-bound plan to address this issue and to effectively utilize the government initiatives being taken in the field of education, the situation would not change”, he added.


Dr. MM Ansari Right To Information (RTI) Commissioner while stressing on the importance of education said, “We are living in an era where one needs to be competitive to survive. Acquiring knowledge and quality education people around the globe have brought a revolution and dramatic turnaround for themselves.”

“This is the time for the Indian Muslims”, he added, “To effectively use the RTI Act and make it sure that the benefits of the government schemes and initiatives for the community reach to them.”


Taking advantage of the presence of the Planning Commission Member and other Government officials in the inaugural function, Dr. Zaheer Qazi – President Anjuman-e-Islam, Mumbai said, “The Government announces schemes for the Indian Muslims. However, when we look at the ground level we fail to find the results.”


Beginning January 8, 2010, the three-day Career Fest 2010 is organized at the plush Saboo Siddique College ground in Mumbai. Earlier, the Career Festival was organized at the same venue for two days in April 2009. Following the overwhelming response the organizers received during and after the event, they decided to organize it for three days and in a more organized manner this year.


Elaborating the purpose of organizing this career festival two-three months before SSC and HSC exams, Aamir Ansari, the Convener said, “We intend to provide the students an opportunity to interact directly with role models and provide them a platform where they can have first-hand guidance from top-notch professionals, educationalist and career experts.”


Recalling the Former Indian President APJ Abdul Kalam who during his various interactions with students always urged them ‘To Dream Big’, Aamir Ansari said, “It is really time for the students to fix-up a target and then wholeheartedly and persistently work to achieve their targets. The main objective of this event is to guide the students in this regard.”


The organizers have invited several successful Muslim professionals like Miss Shabnam Sarguru – a pilot with Jet Airways, Miss Sana Quraishi – a Gemologist from USA, Mubeen Solkar – Advocate Mumbai High Court, Yusuf Sayyad – ING Vysya Bank, Abdur Raheem – General Manager AHLE Bank Dubai, Iqbal Abu Bakar – Architect and Town Planner, Anees Khan – Scientist at IIT Mumbai, Qaisar Khalid – IPS, Qaisar Abdul Haque – IAS, Altaf Patel of Indian Air Force and others for direct interaction with the students.


Besides the direct interaction with professionals – The Role Models as the organizers have termed them, various sessions are organized from morning 10 till 08:00 in the evening to guide the students on what opportunities and career options they have once they finish their Board Exams.
