Aligarh: “The repercussions of the first war of independence in 1857 were felt by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan distinctively from Ghalib, Karl Marx and Deputy Nazir Ahmad and it was his farsightedness, courage, humanity, honesty and vision. He realized the need for modern education for Muslims, who bore the blunt of the Britisher’s ire most”, said eminent novelist and Income Tax Commissioner, Mr. S. M. Ashraf at the release ceremony of a special issue of Tahzibul Akhlaq, a literary magazine published by the Aligarh Muslim University. He said that Sir Syed wanted progress of the community and it was impossible to achieve unless he supported the British rule as a tactic. He said that he has always held Aligarh on a high pedestal. To him, Aligarh is an ideal, idealist and idealism.

As an alumni of this University, Mr. Ashraf appealed to the teachers and students to lead a courageous life and uphold the great ideals of Sir Syed of discipline, righteousness, honesty, humility and traditional and cultural identity. He said these qualities would enlighten the hearts and minds and help in producing persons of eminence.

Presiding over the function, AMU Pro-Vice Chancellor, Brig. (Retd.) Syed Ahmad Ali threw light on different aspects of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan’s life.
