KU seat of women empowerment: Prof Talat

Srinagar, Oct 30: Terming University of Kashmir as the seat of women empowerment where almost 50 percent of the students enrolled in various faculties and departments are women and are pursuing their education in various fields, the Vice Chancellor of Kashmir University Prof Talat Ahmad said that these women could propagate their knowhow further for the overall betterment of the society.
 Speaking during an inaugural session of a one day workshop on “Convention on peace and Justice for Kashmiri Women” organized by Centre for Peace Analysis in collaboration with Women’s Study Centre University of Kashmir and other organizations here on Tuesday, Prof Talat expressed satisfaction the way female students excel boys in many fields of education and science. “80 percent gold medals went to female students on the occasion of 18th annual convocation which indicates women have not been excluded from their basic right of education and University is doing its best to  hone their talent at national level.”
 Maintaining that University has taken several bold initiatives through its distance mode of learning to reach destitute and needy, Prof Talat while referring to ‘Mir Behri’ one of the adapted areas of Srinagar by University said, “Keeping in view the plight of the people in this area, unhygienic conditions, low standard of education due to less resources and most predominate widowhood status, University has adopted this area and is looking after it.”
 Farooq Sheikh, a well know actor and film maker while addressing the participants of the convention said that direct participation in this cause is “need of the hour if we really want to have a concrete effect.”
 “In order to make a civilized human society we must show personal concern and get fully involved to get the same feel as that of aggrieved,” he said.
 Prof  Sadiq Wahid former  Vice Chancellor  of Islamic University of Science and Technology and present director of Institute for Kashmir at KU said that such discussions help know “the problems and then only we can act and do something to solve them.”
