Mumbai: Wednesday August 26, 2009 would always remain as a historic day for the people in Mumbra, the Muslim dominated town in Thane district near the Indian industrial capital Mumbai, when it saw the inauguration of first Urdu medium Junior College for girls in the area. The opening of the college in the vicinity has delighted the natives as earlier they had to travel to the colleges located at faraway places.


The girls-only Urdu medium Junior College that was inaugurated by local MLC Jitendra Awad, Corporators Mahindra Komorlekar and Milind Patil Wednesday is located at Amrut Nagar in the premises of Mumbra Public School.


“Initially we are starting with XIth Arts and Commerce two divisions with the strength of 80 students each for which we have been granted the permission from the government on unaided basis”, said Jamiluddin Khan – Gen. Secretary of Badar Education Trust.


The Trust which has established the Junior College in Mumbra is successfully running Mumbra Public School since last more than a decade.  The school that has about one thousand students on its roll is running both in Urdu as well as English mediums.


 “Although we will face difficulties because of the absence of any grant from the government, the establishment of the junior college is important as it will provide relief to hundreds of girl students who otherwise face drop-outs after SSC”, said Jamiluddin Khan.


Mumbra-Kausa located some 40 kilometers to Mumbai are predominated mostly by the Muslims who migrated to the area mostly from Central and South Mumbai few decades ago. Though settled at this faraway place with their families, majority of them still travel to Mumbai everyday to earn their livelihood.


Local resident Shamim Ahmed, father of two girls is excited on the expected lines. “My elder daughter has cleared SSC exams this year. The opening of the junior college in my own area has encouraged me to continue with her education. Otherwise sending my daughter to faraway places like Kalyan and Bandra was neither feasible nor affordable for me”, he said.
