SIO delegation meets Khurshid on AMU, OBC quota in Jamia Millia

By News Desk,

New Delhi: A high-level delegation of Students Islamic Organisation of India, headed by its national president Suhail K K, met Union Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid yesterday on OBC quota in Jamia Millia Islamia and situation at Aligarh Muslim University.

The SIO delegation, which included its Public Relations Secretary Shahnawaz Ali Raihan, submitted a memorandum to the Union Minister demanding urgent resolution of major problems regarding minority education institutes.

The delegation discussed in detail the issue of minority scholarship schemes, 27% OBC quota issue of Jamia Millia Islamia and the crisis of Aligarh Muslim University.

“Few states did not even publish the notification of minority scholarship schemes. A course of action to solve the present problems in the implementation of minority scholarship schemes, to simplify the process and to make it more outreaching was suggested by the delegation, which was appreciated by the minister,” Raihan said.

SIO also demanded that 27% OBC reservation must not be implemented in Jamia Millia Islamia, since it is a minority institute from its very beginning.

The present crisis in Aligarh Muslim University must urgently be solved amicably and democratically, SIO President demanded

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
