Malegaon: Malegaon – the Muslim dominated textile town in North Maharashtra finally got its first Engineering College June25 yesterday. The foundation stone of the impressive college named as Maulana Mukhtar Ahmed Nadvi College of Engineering and Technology (MMANCET) was laid by General Secretary, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and Chairman, Rahmani Foundation, Maulana Sayyad Mohd Wali Rhamani.
Along with the foundation stone of the engineering college, the inauguration of Mohammadia Dialysis Centre and the foundation stone laying ceremony of As-Shae Girls Hostel were also held during yesterday’s function.
The college, which will begin academic activities from the next year, will be the first degree college in Malegaon. En-route to becoming the first ‘Integrated Centre’ of the region, it is named after renowned Muslim scholar, author and educationalist Maulana Mukhtar Ahmed Nadvi. Besides building around 400 Masajid all across India, Maulana Nadvi was founder of Mansoora – the huge educational complex that hosts Jamia Mohammadia, Mohammadia Tibbiya College and Kulliya Aisha Siddiqa for girls in Malegon. Maulana Nadvi was known for the unique curriculum and syllabus he had designed for the Madrsa students. The syllabus is successfully running in various Madaris ever since its introduction at Jamia Mohammdia, Malegaon in 1978.

“Maulana Mukhtar Nadvi ever since establishing Jamia Mohammadia in 1978 had always looked at this campus as a huge University. With the establishment of the Engineering College, we are on course towards converting his dream into a reality”, says Arshad Mukhtar. Arshad, who took the reins under his control after Maulana Nadvi’s death, was speaking to ummid.com after the foundation stone laying ceremony.
A young and ambitious son of Maulana Mukhtar Nadvi, Arshad does not want to stop here. He wants to take this education hub beyond his father’s dream. “I want Malegaon, which is known for its textile products, to be known worldwide as a Knowledge City instead”, he pledges.
The Muslim dominated textile town in Maharashtra that has a population of more than half a million people always lacked in quality institutions. Though the town has few colleges of education, two Arts, Science & Commerce Colleges, one Pharmacy College and one Tibbia College, it does not have any degree college for professional and engineering courses.
Moreover, since most of the people in the town are coming from economically and socially backward sections, absence of engineering college was also resulting in large-scale dropout cases. Establishment of Maulana Mukhtar Ahmed Nadvi College of Engineering and Technology (MMANCET) in Malegaon is certain to help in addressing quite a few number of issues besides providing quality degree courses to the people.
Along with the foundation stone ceremony of Maulana Mukhtar Ahmed Nadvi College of Engineering and Technology (MMANCET), the inaugural function of Mohammadia Dialysis Centre was also done yesterday. The centre having two dialysis machines installed at Mohammadia Tibbia College in Mansoora - a Unani Hub famous for its innovative rearmament for patents affected by paralysis - was inaugurated by Maulana Wali Rahmani on the same day. The dialysis machines are donated by the Mumbai based Al-Humd Trust and will render the services free of cost.
Yet another highlight of the day was the foundation stone laying ceremony of the new hostel building for the girls studying at Kulliya Aisha Siddiqua. The foundation stone for this building was laid by Dr. Fazlur Rahman Madani.
