'I see my role as offering the voices of the silenced majority of Muslims in America and around the world', says Obama's Muslim advisor

Aurangabad: Farah Pandith, US President Barack Obama's special representative to Muslim communities visited Aurangabad, the historic city of great Mughal Empire August 30, 2010.


She was in the historic city, once used as the regional capital by the Mughal Emperor, Aurangazeb on her two day official tour ahead of the upcoming visit of President Obama to India.


During her stay in the city, Farah Pandith interacted with various Muslim educational and social organisations, besides interacting with a cross-section of people, including NGOs, educational institutions and entrepreneurs, with an aim to increase and strengthen people to people contact.


Pandith, who has visited 25 countries in the last 10 months, said she was visiting the historic place of Aurangabad to interact with people and understand them and their needs.


Urging the people to share their experiences with her, Farah said, "I am here to understand the problems being faced by Muslim organisations so as to apprise US president about them." 

She said that Aurangabad is not a very big city but for her it is as important as any big metro. When asked whether US President will come to Aurangabad during his visit to India she told this issue is of two country's regarding which places President Obama will visit.


Later on she tweeted that Aurangabad is a beautiful historically important city. “Mughal aura floats around ancient structures as we drive by."


Earlier on Monday, Pandith visited several educational institutions and interacted with students and office-bearers of an education society and journalists.


In an event organised by the Tata TiE Stree Shaktee and the Marathwada Institute of Technology (MIT), women entrepreneurs shared their experiences with Pandith. They narrated how they braved hardships while trying to achieve their goals.


"There are misconceptions about Islam all over the world that need to be attended to", she said while interacting with women entrepreneurs in the city.
