Guwahati: A meeting of around sixty prominent educationists and community leaders including MLAs and MP at Hotel Ambarish in Guwahati has decided to organize a National Conference on Minority Educational in Northeast under the aegis of AMU.

The meeting was attended by Prof. Dr Mohammad Shabbir, Dean, Faculty of Law and Member-in-Charge, Legal Affairs of the University. Addressing the meeting he said that being a Central University of international repute, AMU intends to establish a strong bond and an enduring academic linkage with minority managed educational institutions and create a networking environment so that the synergy created could be of immense benefit to the Educational Institutions in India. Aligarh Muslim University is thus mandated to carry out extensive work of specified nature all over the country for educational and cultural upliftment of the Muslims.

Eminent scholar Dr Baharul Islam presented a background paper on the initiatives of Prof P.K. Abdul Azis, the present VC of AMU under Sec 5(20(c) of AMU Amendment Act. He stressed the need to rejuvenate the Aligarh Movement initiated by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and to start afresh a new educational revolution in India. The meeting decided to organize a National Conference on ‘Minority Education in Northeast India’ in collaboration with Aligarh Muslim University.

Maul. Badruddin Ajmal stressed on the need to hold such conferences to bring in all the stakeholders under one platform and prepare them for a collaborating and affirmative action plan. Educationists form across the region will be invited and it is expected that NGO’s and leaders of minority community will attend the conference. He has assured to co-sponsor the conference by AJMAL Foundation.

The meeting also discussed the need of setting up a Center of AMU in Assam. H R A Chaudhury, a member of the AMU Court from Assam raised the demand to set up one such center in Assam. Maul. Ajmal has written to the Vice Chancellor of AMU as well to the Prime Minister, Minister for HRD and the Chief Minister of Assam to propose a ‘Special’ Center of AMU in Dhubri, one of the most economically backward districts in the country.
