NEW DELHI—After Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) as “mini India” representing all regions of the country, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind(JIH) urged the Central and State Governments to allocate special financial packages for the expansion of the AMU and accelerate the research work that the university has been doing.

PM made the “mini India” remark about the university while speaking online as chief guest on the occasion of the centenary celebration of the university on December 22.

Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is the top Muslim socio-cultural organization in India, having its offices and networks all over the country. It has been working for decades for educational and socio-cultural advancement of the people, particularly Muslims and backward people, to ensure a balanced growth of the society at a whole.

While demanding more financial packages for expansion of the university and accelerate its research activities, JIH President Sadatullah Husaini also appealed the government to ensure that the minority status of the university was preserved and more off campus centres of the university were opened in all the major cities across the country during centenary year of the AMU.

In a statement, Mr Husaini said, “The University deserves special packages from the central and state governments for its expansion and to scale up its research facilities. The minority status of AMU and its status as the bastion of Muslim culture needs careful nurturing and preservation.”

In a missive sent to AMU Vice-Chancellor, Mr Husaini has congratulated students, faculty, administration and the alumni of the AMU on the occasion of the centenary celebrations and hoped for further progress of the university.

He prayed that AMU would rank among the top ten universities of the world.

He said, “AMU has completed the proud journey of 100 years of valuable contribution to education and research. I express heartiest greetings to the AMU management, its students,  alumni and all countrymen. We expect and pray for the next leg of its academic journey to be more impressive and path-breaking.”

Admiring the services of the university in the fields of education and research, Mr. Husaini said, “AMU’s contribution towards imparting quality education and research has been acknowledged by the world. The cradle of learning has produced a number of intellectuals and the scholars, who are serving humanity the world over. The inclusiveness in the university is the hallmark of the institution, certainly, it is an epitome of the pluralistic culture, which our country needs to   strengthen. Staying true to its mandate, the university has always played a pivotal role in educational development of the Muslim minority and in preserving its cultural values and defending its rights.” 

Hailing the University for playing an important role in the development of the country through its extraordinary capabilities, the JIH President reminded the Government of India of its responsibility of educational advancement of minorities.

He asserted, “The constitutional guarantee of the educational advancement of minorities and their cultural rights requires that the government should pay attention to the institutions, which have minority characters. The government should also shield firmly against the assault or move, which is committed to abolish the minority character of the AMU, from time to time.”
