The Success Mantra: Honesty top in the list

Girl students exult again, this time in M. Sc.

Malegaon: Ansari Mohd. Saquib became first from Malegaon – the Muslim dominated textile town in North Maharashtra, to crack the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) for Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) when the results were announced on March 15.


He scored an impressive 91.70% marks to ensure for himself an admission in any of the prime Indian institutions for the two-year post graduation course M.E.


Currently, Mohd Saquib (23) is doing B.E. in Petrochemical Engineering from Maharashtra Institute of Technology (MIT) - the leading institution located in Pune, said the family sources.


Saquib’s success becomes more profound because of the difficulties he faced during his early education in Malegaon – the town torn first by the series of communal conflicts and later by the two terrorist attacks.


Moreover, he appeared simultaneously for three important exams that include B.E. final years, GATE for IIT and GRE - Graduate Record Examination - a commercially run standardized test that is an admission requirement for graduate schools in United States, the sources added.


While the results for GATE IIT is out, Saquib is waiting for BE final year and GRE results, expected any time in the coming months.


“Saquib was preparing for the final years of his B.E. in Petrochemical Engineering at MIT when he decided to appear for the GATE and GRE. We express our gratitude to Almighty Allah that Saquib successfully cracked the exams”, Dr. Yusuf Ansari said while speaking to


Saquib currently in Dehradun for the final year project presentation will appear for the IIT interview later this month, informed Dr. Yusuf Ansari.


The Ansari household is famous in the town for their excellent academic success. While Dr. Yusuf Ansari himself is a ‘Master-of-all’ kind of person, his younger sister Dr. Zubaida Ansari received acclaims from the likes of Former Indian President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam after she became the first Muslim Lady Scientist. Dr. Yusuf surprised everyone in 1983 by demonstrating fully functional electronic tap in a Science exhibition right in Malegaon. A graduate of Arts faculty, when Dr. Yusuf joined Mohammadia Tibbia College - a local Unani Medical college as an English professor, he went on to complete BUMS - the graduation in Unani medicines and later wrote over 15 books on the subject in a very short span of time.


“Saquib’s success run once again shows the potential that Malegaon has”, said Citizens for Development & Peace (CDP) Convener Aleem Faizee.


“This is why CDP is pressing the State Government to give the final nod to establish Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) off-campus centre in Malegaon”, he added.


Malegaon having a population of more than half a million people has little option for higher education. Due to this, most of the students even after scoring brilliantly in SSC and HSC board exams either do not opt for higher education or just satisfy with the normal degrees in Arts, Science and Commerce, or D.Ed. and B.Ed.


"This is high time for the government to realise the negligence it has meted towards the town. If the town gets the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) centre established in Malegaon, it will compensate more than sixty years of negligence towards Malegaon", said Chairman of the JAT Women's College, Ansari Nehal Ah.
