Minority Education Under Siege: Government closes Maulana Azad Foundation

This video exposes the Indian government's decision to shut down the Maulana Azad Education Foundation (MAEF), a vital resource for minority education, particularly Muslims.

Key Points:

  • The MAEF effectively promoted education among disadvantaged minorities for over 30 years.
  • Government data confirms the positive impact of its scholarship programs and skill development schemes.
  • Despite its success, the MAEF's funding was slashed, and scholarships like Begum Hazrat Mahal were discontinued.
  • This closure deepens the educational gap for Muslims, who already face the lowest literacy rates among minorities.
  • The Sachar Committee Report (2006) and the 2011 Census highlight these disparities.
  • A recent study reveals limited access to quality education and higher dropout rates within the Muslim community.
  • The closure hinders progress towards inclusive education, disproportionately impacting Muslims.

Watch this video to understand the urgency of addressing the educational crisis faced by the Muslim community in India.
