July 31 2009 5:01 am Related News Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee announced in his Budget speech that Aligarh Muslim University had decided to establish its campuses at Murshidabad in West Bengal and Malappuram in Keralaand that he proposed to make an allocation of Rs 25 crore each for these two campuses While it is undoubtedly true that Muslims in Bengal have been educationally neglected by successive governments since Independencethis may not be the answer The idea of a Muslim university at Aligarh had been discussed as early as 1898 at the Muhammedan Education Conference and since that year the trustees had been making efforts to raise the Mohammedan Anglo-Oriental College (MAO College) founded by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan in 1875to the status of a university The movement for a Muslim university gained strengthand at the Mohammedan Anglo-Oriental Education Conference held in Bombay in 1903the Aga Khan made a strong plea for the establishment of a Muslim university at Aligarh with affiliated colleges all over India In the address presented to the ViceroyLord Mintoat Simla in 1906the Muslim Deputation reiterated this demand From a strictly educational point of viewSir John HewittLieutenant Governor of UP and several other officials saw little justification for a separate Muslim university Hewitt opposed the idea on the ground that denominational universities would increase the already existing communal tensions in the province but his government finally decided to support the scheme for political reasons An affiliating university at Aligarh had become a political battle cry The matter was referred to London where it was vigorously debated in the Secretary of States India Council When the constitution of the proposed university was being drawn up in the first two decades of the last centurythe question of whether the university should have the power of affiliating colleges was vigorously debated Sir Theodore Morrisona member of the Council who had been a former principal of MAO college and a close friend of Sir Syedstrongly opposed granting Aligarh the power of affiliation on the ground that it would be inconsistent with the idea of a teaching and residential university It was argued that the standards of Aligarh would be diluted by affiliating institutions far awayover which the university would not be able to exercise control; it would violate the principle of territorial affiliation on which Indian universities were constituted and the government would permit an enclave in any district where a few Muslims would set up an educational institution The Secretary of StateLord Crewewas himself not opposed to the idea of affiliation but with almost unanimous opposition from his Councilhe was compelled to refuse this power to the proposed university The ViceroyLord Hardinge and the Education Member of his CouncilSir Harcourt Butler feared that refusal to grant affiliation would cause grave political embarrassment and urged London that the right to affiliation should be granted on political grounds The India Council howeverremained adamant MAO College was started to provide English education to the sons of the Muslim elites of north India Sir Syed hoped that they would become loyal subjects of the Raj Howeverduring the Khilafat movementAligarh became the centre of anti-British agitation and pan-Islamic sentimentsand in the 1940s was drawn to the Muslim League and the demand for Pakistan It has thus seen many political swings No community or group should be denied education The Sachar Committee Report has highlighted the educational backwardness of Muslims in Bengal While the states literacy rate is 686 per centamong its Muslims the figure drops to 575 per cent Whereas 828 per cent of Muslim children were enrolled at the primary stagethe number dropped to about 26 per cent (in 2001) at the middle level and those who finished the next level to become eligible for admission to college As we go up the education ladderthe drop out rate is higher and higher not only among Muslims but for SCsSTs and girls in Bengal as elsewhere in India The main reason for this is poverty but also the appalling state of government secondary schools lack of infrastructureovercrowded classespoor quality teaching etc With the growing demand for higher educationIndia must certainly have more colleges and universities and there is every reason that Murshidabad should have one But why should it be affiliated to AMU AMU has enough problems of its own It is full of sectarian politics Does it have the administrative structure and academic quality to manage a university thousands of miles away And if this is permittedwhy cannot any other university in India demand the same right By the same logicBenares Hindu University (BHU) can also have affiliated colleges and universities Ancient and medieval universities in Britain such as Oxford and Cambridge and in Europe were religious seminaries But from the nineteenth century onwardsuniversities became seats of secular learning both in the West and in India The first three universities set up in India in 1857 CalcuttaBombay and Madras were all secularas were all subsequent universities AMU and BHU were exceptions in being allowed to have Muslim and Hindu in their nomenclature One can well understand that there is hunger for higher education in Murshidabad but why for AMU Let Murshidabad by all means have a college or university of high quality but why cannot it be an independent university or a college affiliated to Calcutta
