In a glittering ceremony here on Saturday July 06, five NGOs – three from Malegaon and two from Mumbai, pledged to work together to improve representation of people from the backward communities especially the Muslim minority into the Indian Civil Services and launched various initiatives including a camapign titled as 'Har ghar se aik civil servant'.

With this campaign, the NGOs – Jadeed Anjuman Taleem Trust (J.A.T. Malegaon), Noble Education & Welfare Society (NEWS Malegaon), National Awakening & Development of Youth (NADY Malegaon), Jamia Mohammadia Education Society (JMES Mumbai) and Markazul Ma'arif Education & Research Centre (MMERC, Mumbai) have decided to inspire students by presenting in front of them UPSC passouts as role models, and adopt and bear the expenses of selected aspiring students so that the finance does not become a hurdle.

"Our campaign is aimed at improving the tally of the people from minority communities into the civil services", J.A.T. Chairman Nehal Ansari said while addressing the ianugural function held at Ahmed Sardar Hall in Malegaon.

He said besides presenting UPSC passouts as role models, they intend to organise a series of programs to inspire and shortlist students who can join the Indian Civil Services in future.

"For this purpose, we are hiring the services of experts from Pune and Mumbai. After the short-listing of aspiring students, we intend to mobilise funds for the complete expenditure of their further education and preparation for the UPSC exams", he said.

Director of MMERC and Editor of Eastern Crescent Burhanuddin Qasmi while addressing the inaugural session urged the students to opt for the Indian Civil Services as career.

"One of the primary reasons why Muslims are backward in India is their almost negligible presence in the Indian Civil Services where the decisions are taken and policies are framed. Unless we increase our tally, we can't dream of a better future", he said.

Elaborating further on the future roadmap, he said they are also targeting students in high schools and junior colleges besides those who are at graduate level.

"We have planned to organise competitive tests through the year so that the students at high school and junior college level become acquittance with the pattern of the UPSC exams", he said.

During the inuagral function, Hammad Zafar of Maunath Bhanjan (Uttar Pradesh), Umme Fardina Adeel of Guwahati (Asam) and Shakeel Ansari of Nandurbar (Maharashtra) who had cleared the UPSC exams held in 2012, were also felicitated.

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. After early schooling at Disney Land High School in Khanapara, she did Engineering in Computer Science from Mody Institute of Technology and Science (Rajasthan). She is currently associated with Accenture Services Pvt. Ltd. as a senior programmer and is working on a project 'Low Cost Sanitation Technologies'.

The three guests elaborated in details how they cracked the UPSC exams and also answered the queries of the students who are aspiring to become IAS and other high rank officers in coming days.
