Three of the total thirty Muslims who passed the 2012 Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exams will be felicitated in a mega ceremony to be held in Malegaon Saturday.

The UPSC passouts who will be felicitated include Hammad Zafar of Maunath Bhanjan in Uttar Pradesh, Umme Fardina Adil of Guwahati in Assam and Shakeel Ansari of Shahada in Maharashtra, said the organisers of the program.

"We wanted to felicitate all the thirty Muslims who cracked this year's UPSC exams. However, due to unavoidable constraints and limitations, we chose Hammad Zafar, Umme Fardina and Shakeel Ansari for felicitation and present them as role models to students in Malegaon", Chairman of Noble Education & Welfare Society (NEWS) Aleem Faizee said while talking to ummid.com.

The felicitation-cum-UPSC guidance program is jointly organised by Markazul Ma'arif Education & Research Centre (MMERC, Mumbai), Jamia Mohammadia Education Society (Mumbai), Jadeed Anjuman Taleem Trust (Malegaon), National Awakening & Development of Youth (NADY) and Noble Education & Welfare Society (NEWS).

"The entire program is divided into two parts. The felicitation program will be held in the morning at Ahmed Sardar Hall (JAT Complex) where around 10,000 students are expected to gather for the ceremony. In the afternoon, a one-to-one interactions between the above UPSC passouts and those who are preparing for the coveted exams will be held at Jamia Mohammadia Mansoora Auditorium", Aleem Faizee said.

Hammad Zafar is one among the only few Madrasa graduates who have made to the Indian civil service. Coming from a weaver's family of Uttar Pradesh's Maunath Bhanjan, Hammad Zafar completed primary education from Madrasa Aaliya. Later on, he graduated from Madrasa Salafiyah (Banaras) and then did Ph.D. from Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi.

Shakeel Ansari, the other person to be felicitated in Malegaon hails from Maharashtra's tribal district Nandurbar. After primary and higher education from Urdu medium schools in Shahada, he completed M.Sc. in Physics from Pune before cracking the UPSC exams considered as the one of toughest exams in India.

Umme Fardina Adil, who will also be felicitated and presented as role model, was born and brought up in Guwahati.
