Padamshree Prof. Akhtarul Wasey inaugurates Human Chain office in Delhi

By Mohd. Mudassir Alam

“All big things and big ventures had a small beginning. A small madarsa started with only five students by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan turned into the prestigious Aligarh Muslim University. Human Chain and its members should take lessons from such historic facts and move ahead with their small steps to achieve the exceptional,” said Padamshree Prof Akhtarul Wasey while addressing the gathering during the inauguration of Human Chain head office. A Delhi based non-government registered society, Human Chain owned its office at 161/B, D block in Abul Fazal Enclave area of Okhla in New Delhi. The office premises has been voluntarily given by its owner Rahmat Ahsan, a businessman from Kishanganj, Bihar and owner of general store at AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Science), New Delhi.

Padamshree Wasey was chief guest at the inaugural ceremony organised by the Human Chain this Sunday. A professor by profession, Padamshree Wasey is director of Zakir Hussain Institute of Islamic Studies in Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. Prof. Wasey was highly elated over the work of Human Chain society in short span of time since its inception in June 25, 2012. Referring to the activities of Human Chain, Padamshree Wasey said, “the community and nation badly need many voluntary groups of professionals to resolve the plethora of issues lying before all. Despite job association in various private firms and government offices, the members of the society are managing time to do social work focused towards major areas namely education and health. This really deserves plaudits from me as well as others.”

“If Human Chain keep this momentum up for coming a couple of years, I am sure a big change would be witnessed, especially in the Seemanchal region of Bihar, where people are deprived in almost all affairs of development”, told Prof Wasey. Further he added, “I am happy with the plans of the society to establish free coaching classes for financially weaker students in different parts of Seemanchal region. This would be a great work and motivate the students as well as their guardians to continue studies even after matriculation (board) exam.”

Mohd Fareed Burney, an AMU alumni and senior advocate Delhi Court was also present as special guest during the inauguration ceremony. Advocate Burney who himself is associated with the society praised the works of its members and ensured his all possible help for the projects run by the society. In fact, he said that I have never witnessed such enthusiastic youth who care of society despite their busy schedules.

Mohammad Aslam, president Human Chain, in his talk shared the modus operandi of the society and contribution of its dedicated members. “We are focused and optimistic to bring change in the society in due course of time. We ensure the people of Kishanganj, Katihar, Araria, Purnia and Supaul that certainly this society would meet your expectations. Dr. Khalid Mubashshir, general secretary Human chain, Minnat Rahmani, secretary Human Chain, Dr. Mujahid Akhtar, treasurer of the society along with Tarique Sufyan, Salam Anwar and Naseem Haider had delivered thought-provoking speeches by referring to achievements and future plan of the society.

It should be noted that Human Chain is a non-registered society formed by the working professionals from Seemanchal region of Bihar, which comprised of seven districts namely Kishanganj, Katihar, Purnia, Araria, Saharsa, Supaul and Madhepura. This is one of the most backward areas of the country and legging behind in development in comparison to other parts of the country. With the aim to bring change in the region of Seemanchal, this society was formed in June 2012 under the Societies registration ACT XXI, 1860, Govt of Delhi.

In less than eight month time since its establishment this society had organized many education focused seminars, conferences and workshops. Prominent among them are Youth Resource Development Programme (YRDP), Seemanchal Education Conclave (SEC) and National Conference on Sachar Committee recommendations at India Islamic Cultural Centre on December 25, which was attended by K Rahman Khan, union Minister for Minority Affairs. Human Chain has been a front-runner group to push ahead the matter of proposed AMU (Aligarh Muslim University) campus in Kishanganj. This society has worked as a bridging link among the AMU administration (Vice Chancellor), Govt of Bihar and the concerned ministries at the centre.
