Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind distributed scholarship worth one crore
Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has distributed scholarships to 656 students worth rupees one crore for higher and vocational education.
Students were selected based on merit and other conditions. And this year 19 non-Muslim students have been provided with the scholarship.
The scholarship ranged from Rs 75,000 to 12,000 per annum. The scholarships are given for Medical, Engineering, B.Tech, M.Tech Polytechnic, B.Sc., B.Com, B.A., B.B.A., B.C.A, M.Com, MSc, MCA, Diploma, ITI students.
On the occasion, Moulana Arshad Madani, the President of JUH said, “Hatred could be defeated through education which will create harmony amongst the people.”
Citing the recent example of the boy who was thrashed for drinking water at the temple in Uttar Pradesh, he said the root cause in the incident or similar incidents was illiteracy.
The Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has been giving scholarships to talented and hardworking students who are financially weak and needy since 2012 through a public trust, “Taleemi Imdadi Fund” and a committee of educationists to select students were formed.
Maulana Madani noted that education has become very expensive in today’s era, and despite all the claims by the government, its welfare and education schemes are not reaching the needy. Keeping this in mind, we started a scholarship program emphasising students of higher and vocational education.
