A First for Darul Uloom Deoband, Cleric Clears UPSC

Wasimur Rehman from Uttar Pradesh’s Siddharth Nagar could have ended up being an imam, leading prayers in a mosque.

The 31-year-old certified cleric, however, chose the road less travelled. And in doing so, he has become the first cleric from the influential Islamic seminary Darul Uloom of Deoband to clear the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exam, which selects officers for the country’s elite administrative cadre.

Rehman secured the 404th position this year in his fourth and final shot at the UPSC.

“I always wanted to become a high-ranking government officer and serve my country. I am happy to become the first Darul cleric to clear the UPSC,” Rehman said on Wednesday.

Rehman has three brothers one is a taxi driver, another works at a shop while the third is a student.

When he graduated from Darul a few years ago, Rehman realised that an unrecognised Islamic degree rendered him ineligible for his dream career the civil services. So, he went back to his native Latia village and gave religious discourses for a while.

Then somebody told him a bachelor’s degree in Unani medicine from Jamia Hamdard University in New Delhi could make him eligible for civil services. Five years later, the degree cleared his way for the UPSC examination.

Rehman, who manages only a smattering of English, wrote the entire exam in Urdu, with History and Persian as his main subjects. Far away from Darul in Gujarat’s Bharuch district, news of Rehman’s feat has triggered celebrations in Jameah Qasimiya Arabia, one of India’s most modern madrasas that has introduced compulsory English and computer classes.

“This is great news. Rehman has made all madaris (students) proud,” said Maulana Hamzad, a student.

“Madrasas need not produce only clerics. Students invariably become clerics because most of them do not get career counselling.”

Rehman himself feels the modernisation of madrasas, a prickly issue, is a crying need.

The Sachar Committee, which assessed the socio-economic status of India’s 150 million Muslims, has called for “recurrent grants and a mechanism for madrasas to be linked with a higher secondary board so that students wanting to shift to regular/mainstream education can do so even after having graduated from a madrasa.”


Nazima Almas Sayed Topped HSE Exams with 98.5% Marks

Be alive to the purpose of life: Maharashtra HSE topper Nazima Almas Sayed

“It feels great!” says Nazima Almas Sayed. And she has every reason to feel so – she bagged the first rank in the Maharashtra Higher Secondary Examination. Her achievements have not stopped there. She got second place in Vidharbha in the state Medical Entrance Exams, first in the state entrance for private colleges ASSOCET and second in the state Sevagram exams.

Nazima, a student of the Shivaji Science College of Nagpur, topped the HSE exams with 98.5% marks. Over 11.84 lakh students had attended the exam conducted in February-March.

Talking to TwoCircles.net, Nazima expressed her desire to pursue the medical profession, specializing in cardiology. “Heart is the most important part of the body. There I will use all my potential,” she said.

This only daughter of a doctor family had decided to take up the medical profession long back. Initially she wanted to become a gynaecologist like her mother. But later she changed her decision, she says, after meeting many people.

Nazima’s father is a doctor of general medicine. Her elder brother is a second year student of MBBS. Her younger brother studies in eighth standard.

“Teachers and friends had a great role in my success,” says Nazima. “Teachers taught me how to learn and answer questions. Multiple choice questions that I had in my entrance coaching classes were really helpful in having a deep understanding of things.”

So, how was her study method?

Nazima used to get up at four in the morning and study for an hour. Early morning study really helped, she says. Then she had tuitions before school time. In school, she used to attend classes with full concentration. “I depended mainly on my teachers’ lectures and text books. Notes given came only after that.” She had the habit of preparing charts and pasting them on walls where they were easy to be noted always. So wherever she was at home, study matters were always in front of her eyes.

Nazima also had a good company of friends. “We had a healthy competition among friends. We used to appreciate each other in success and correct in case of any mistakes,” Nazima said. And she expressed her happiness in the success of her friends who have achieved very good marks in HSE as well as entrance exams.

Now, what does she want to do for the society and community?

She says she wants to work against the social evils of abortion and female foeticide. She had attended programmes conducted by some NGOs against abortion, and that triggered in her the urgent need to fight against this social menace. She hopes her medical profession will offer her a great opportunity to serve the society.

Nazima, who has never been outside the country, loves to go abroad. She likes to go abroad and study the new and most modern technology in the medical field. And then she plans to come back home to implement here what she had learned. When asked about settling abroad, she said she did not like it. “I was born and brought up here. I love going out but don’t want to live there forever.”

“Being a Muslim doesn’t make you inferior in the society,” says Nazima. “Dare to dream. Have passion to fulfill that dream. Be persistent in hard work. Don’t be aimless in life.”

Nazima believes that each human being has been born and brought to the world for a purpose. One should realize that purpose and live up to it.

And her message to the Muslim students?

‘Be alive to the purpose of your life.’

Inventing More Efficient Artificial Limbs Through Nanotech

Aligarh: Recent findings of research by an engineering faculty member at the Aligarh Muslim University have indicated that artificial biological fibers made through nanotechnology can play an important role in making more efficient and cheaper artificial limbs for patients at the recently conducted international conference at Goa organized by the Powder Mettallurgy Association of India (PMAI), Akhtar Hussain Ansari of the AMU said zinc oxide nano particles which till now were being synthesized only at 'high temperature' and 'high pressure' conditions can now be synthesized even at 'low temperature' and 'atmospheric condition'. Ansari, who presented his findings at the above conference, said that his findings 'would help in a substantive reduction of cost in the manufacture of nano size zinc oxide particles which will be used not only for making artificial limbs but also for the production of ultra violet radiation protective glasses and other similar items.


From Amroha To Moon

Small-town girl Khushboo Mirza broke stereotypes to reach ISRO

HER FIRST brush with stardom began when she had barely reached her house in Amroha on a night last month, her first visit after the success of Chandrayaan- I. She was confronted by a reporter and his photographer who had been outside the house of the Mirzas to photograph Kushboo for the paper’s edition the next day. That was only to preempt the numerous visits and accolades from well-wishers and invitations for the aeronautical engineer to address and “inspire” students in the town’s schools and colleges.

Asked why she thinks the floodgates of commemoration and recognition have opened, she says, “I am a Muslim girl from a small town and yet I have contributed to Indian science.” She is quick to clarify that education and religion are independent of each other. “Times haves changed and the attitude of people towards Muslim girls also needs to change. Our families do educate us,” she says. At 23, Khushboo is proud of the fact that unlike other women her age, she chose a modest government job over a lucrative one for a foreign software firm. The need she perceived, of contributing to research in pure sciences in the country, has led the way. Chandrayaan- 1 is the result of many such individual compromises.         ...READ FULL NEWS
