annually conducted by the Union Public Service Commission, (UPSC).
It may be pointed out here that Crescent Academy is a division of
Maulana Abdur Rahim Educational Trust, established with a vision
of providing proper guidance and training to the Civil Services
aspirants with special emphasis on creating a sound academic
environment. It was started, over a decade ago, by Maulana
Mohammad Fazlur Rahim Mujaddidi, a great spiritual personality,
academician and social activist of north India.
It goes without saying that the civil servants play a pivotal role
in shaping up the course of the country. It is, therefore, the
primary objective of the academy to prepare the students for
cracking this exam along with inculcating in them moral and human
values so that they may prove themselves as unbiased, humane and
efficient bureaucrats and administrators.
According to Maulana Mujaddidi, who is also a member of the
Consultative Group for Empowerment of Minorities, Planning
Commission of India, the new aspirants who want to appear in the
examination of the elite services can visit the Crescent Academy’s
website www.cacademy.org for details.
It may be pointed out here that Prof. Ziaul Hasan, retired
Principle of Aligarh Muslim University Polytechnic, Aligarh and
Mohammad Iqbal Khan, Director of Crescent Academy, Delhi, are
the pathfinders of establishing, guiding and training the
aspirants of various competitive examinations countrywide. They
have lent their long academic and administrative experience of
producing various Civil and Judicial servants for the services of
the nation, And, it is a matter of pride that the Academy has
succeeded in achieving its objective in such a short span of time.
