BHOPAL – A delegation of the People Welfare and Educational Trust (PWET) from Hyderabad this week distributed the first instalment of Rs2,500 each as scholarships to all 28 orphans, poor and needy students of Class VII and VIII of Bhopal in M.D. School in the Jahangirabad locality of the city. 

The second instalment of the scholarships of Rs2,500 of the total Rs1,40,000 will be handed over to the students in the next couple of months, the trust members said.

The PWET delegation was led by its president Dr. Muhammad Mateen-u-ddeen Qadri. Other members of the delegation included Mirza Yusuf Baig, Er. Muhammad Muazuddin, Dr. Ghulam Kirmani, Abdul Hanan Khan and Er. Iqbal Khan.

The PWET has been distributing scholarships to orphans, poor and needy students for the last 13 years. Last year, the trust extended its activities outside Hyderabad to include Nizamabad district in Telangana, Gulbarga and Yadgar districts in Karnataka and Mominabad (Ambajogai). The scholarship distribution was also implemented in the state of Maharashtra and recently the trust also included Bhopal in its work.

Addressing the students and their parents at the scholarship distribution programme, Dr. Muhammad Mateen-u-ddeen Qadri, who is also the founding member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, a member of the Public Service Commission and a retired professor of Arabic, emphasised three ‘Ds’ – Determination, Dedication and Direction. He explained at length the importance of the three Ds in life.

He appealed to the students to due respect to their parents and to develop in themselves an unflinching faith in Allah Almighty and “Milli Jazba”. He encouraged the students to work hard. “Obeying Allah and His Messenger and obeying parents is essential. This will bring immense popularity and blessings in life,” he added.

Mirza Yousuf Baig stressed the importance of education to be successful in both worlds. He urged students not to ignore learning of Urdu language which has a very rich heritage and take it up as a second language in their studies. He said the only way forward was quality education with students utilising their time judiciously and meticulously aiming to fulfil their dreams.

Baig said PWET has established a legal academy in Hyderabad wherein 26 out of 28 students qualified in the entrance test for admission to law colleges. He also laid emphasis on the students of Bhopal to take up the law profession to become dedicated lawyers apart from opting for engineering and medical professions. The learning of law studies will allow them to delve the vast field of judiciary services which is the need of the Muslim community in the prevailing scenario in the country. Additionally, he appealed to the students to concentrate on character building and strive to maintain high morals in their day-to-day affairs.

Secretary of the trust, Muhammad Muazuddin, said undoubtedly Muslims are being targeted in different ways. “But the solution to all our problems lies in education and through it only students will be able to make their distinguishing mark in every sector.”

PWET’s trustee, Abdul Hanan Khan, shed light on the trust’s mission and vision. He said the PWET scholarships are aimed at encouraging poor and needy students.

The function was presided over by Shamimuddin, a retired IAS officer in the Madhya Pradesh government.

Earlier, Saud Hasan, spokesperson of the Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee, also spoke on the importance of education. The function was conducted jointly by Maulana Absar Ahmad and Masood Ahmad Khan while Dr. Zaheer Ahmad, Director of M.D. School proposed a vote of thanks.

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Muslim Minority Association (MPMMA)  arranged a talk by Dr. Muhammad Mateen-u-ddeen Qadri on the importance of education at Masjid Faiz Bahadur, Kamla Park at the weekend.

Besides this, a program was also held on the same day in Masjid Fatmi located in Subhash Nagar A-Sector, Acharya Nagar, Govindpura.
