Give us AMU centre: Girl students of Malegaon demand on Women's Day

Malegaon: From Malegaon to Mumbai and Pune, and from United States to Saudi Arabia, the netizens are overwhelmed by the news that the land proposal for AMU Malegaon has finally been approved by the state government. While the proposal waits for the VC's decision, the internet savvy research scholars, students and working professionals all gave a strong thumbs up to this important project and urged the Vice Chancellor to take a quick decision so that the "AMU Malegaon becomes a reality soon".


"This proposed project should have a positive impact for the students of Malegaon. Many of them have to reluctantly leave the city, and in some cases, the country, because adequate educational facilities are not available in Malegaon. I hope the concerned authorities take rapid measures to establish AMU at Malegaon", Dr Farrukh Hakeem, an Indian American of Malegaon origin wrote in his comments from New York.

On similar lines, Dr Ibrahim Shaikh - a Malegaonian who migrated to UK wrote, "Wonderful news for the people of Malegaon specially the girls. I have been studying Malegaon very closely and found the place hungry for education. Establishing AMU centre here will certainly help people in this region."


Equally excited are the girl-students. While they see the AMU centre in Malegaon as something which would provide them opportunities for higher studies, they expect from the AMU authorities swift action for early establishment of the centre.


"A very good news for the girl students of Malegaon. Lot of girls pass SSC & HSC and also graduation. They also want to do Research and post graduation but could not. Because we have no such colleges. AMU here will help people like us a lot", Nazema Jamluddin - a local student wrote in her comments.


Sharmeen Nikhat also has somewhat similar feelings. "I am doing HSC. Being a girl from an economically backward family, it is difficult for me to afford further studies out of Malegaon. It will help me a lot if the AMU Malegaon takes an early establishment", she wrote.


Intekhab Alam Siddiqui - a netizen wrote from Pune, "Its a very good news for the Malegaon. I requst to the VC of AMU to approve the proposal. A lot of students from Malegaon come to Pune for Higher Studies and pay a huge amount in the form of fee and donations..........AMU Centre will provide quality education at nominal cost."


Mohd Mobin - yet another netizen wrote from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, "Its really an encouraging news. I desired to do PG but had to settle with graduation because I neither had any option locally nor had money to go to expensive metroes. My appeal to the vice chancellor to take early decision so that what happened to me is not repeated to my children."

Chetan Kothari is a bit skeptical but raised a very important point. He wrote, "To kya Malegaon ki kismat sach much chamakne wali hai. The town with such a wonderful past history has always been ignored. The situation had reached to an extent where even Hindus were heard telling that they were paying the price of living in a Muslim dominated town. Establishment of AMU centre in Malegaon will surely compensate the past misdoings."


Meanwhile, the news of the state government's decision to forward AMU Malegaon proposal to the university has also found good coverage in the National media. While Sahafat - an Urdu national daily was quick to take the news June 22 - the very next day of it appearing in, Times of India carried it in Nasik Times on June 23 and Hindustan Times took it on June 24.
