Govt wants to empower minority communities through education, says Naqvi

Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Monday said his ministry is spending 65 per cent of its budget on the educational empowerment and skill development of students of the minority communities.

“The Ministry of Minority Affairs is spending 65 per cent of its budget on the educational empowerment and skill development of the minorities,” Naqvi said, adding, “We want to empower the minority communities through education. It will help improve the quality of education if we work together.”

Saying that a huge gap exists between the South and North Indian states in terms of accessible, affordable and quality education for minority community students, he said that his government is committed to bridge that gap by providing affordable and quality education to students of all sections of the society, including minorities.

“The education system varies in all the states. While there are better education facilities and resources for minorities in the south of India, there is a lack of such facilities in the north,” he said, adding, “The government is committed to bridge that gap by providing affordable and quality education to students of all sections of the society, including minorities.”

“The process of establishing five world-class institutions across the country to provide modern education to the minorities was also on,” Naqvi said during a visit to the Anjuman-e-Islam Karimi Library in south Mumbai.

“Our policy of ’empowerment without appeasement’ has ensured that the minorities become an equal partner in the country’s development process,” he added.

On the occasion, Dr Zahir Kazi, President of Anjuman-l-Islam, said, “We discussed various minority schemes available with respect to skill development. The meeting was held to fathom how the ministry and the institute can come together for the improvement of the minority communities. Anjuman-l-Islam can be a facilitator at national level and help them with experience and expertise from the institute.”
