Philanthropist helps Malegaon get ITI College

Thursday July 07, 2011 02:30:40 PM, ummid.com Staff Reporter

Malegaon: Two years after he donated a huge sum of money barely few days before his death, the dream of the local philanthropist Abdul Gafoor finally came true when Maulana Ghulam Mohammad Vastanvi laid the foundation stone of the Jamia ITI College here in Malegaon July 06.

 

"The establishment of this ITI college has become possible only because of the huge money the local philanthropist Abdul Gafoor had donated to me with a promise to use them for the education of the local youths", Maualana Ghulam Mohammad Vastanvi said while paying tribute to him after laying the foundation stone of the Jamia ITI college in Malegaon yesterday.

 

"Today I am fulfilling the promise I had made two years back to Abdul Gafoor. The building construction would be complete by next six months and the academic activities would begin immediately after that", he added.

 

According to Maulana Ayyub Qasmi - one of the local coordinators, Abdul Gafoor - a local businessman and owner of a textile mills, was impressed by the work of Maulana Ghulam Mohammad Vastanvi done in the field of education. Hence he approached him in 2009 and donated 10 million Indian rupees in cash and in the form of lands with a request to use the amount for the education of the Malegaonians. 

 

"It was an unfortunate coincidence that Abdul Gafoor died just three days after handing over the entire amount to Maulana Vastanvi", Qasmi recalled.
 

Maulana Ghulam Mohammad Vastanvi is already running a chain of Madaris, engineering, medical and ITI colleges across India. The Jamia ITI college in Malegaon will work as an extension branch of Jamia ITI, Akkalkuwa. It will initially run the short-term professional courses including electrician, plumbing, draftsman, mechanic and automobile. New courses would be introduced phase-wise later on.

Picture of the Day

A Masjid and Mandir stand side by side in Malegaon. Though the town is regarded as communally sensitive place and has actually gone through a series of riots and terrorist attacks, people here are known for living together, and in peace and harmony since hundreds of years. The picture is taken during the Dassehra Festival that ended October 17. Every year the Mandir is illuminated and decorated with lights and special Pujas are held even as Muslims pray in the Madjid almost simultaenously.
