The contributions made by the Ulema should be made part of the national syllabus so that the new generation gets aware of the role of the Ulema in liberating their motherland from the foreign rule. This was the consensus emerged during a national seminar on ‘Role of Muslim Ulema in Indian Freedom Struggle’ hosted in Mumbai by a new found organisation Wifaqul Madaris Mumbai and Thana on January 27.

Former Petroleum Minister Ram Nayak said the first war of Independence was fought in 1857 under the leadership of the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar. Till then Hindus and Muslims were one and the same. The British sowed the seeds of hatred. Referring to the role of Ulema in freedom struggle, Mr. Nayak emphasised that thousands of Ulema sacrificed their lives to their motherland.

“The new generation is totally ignorant of the role and contributions made by the Ulema to our independence struggle. It is our duty to enlighten the next generation about the contribution of Ulema. Therefore, I strongly recommend that it be made an essential part of the national curriculum,” he emphasised.

Renowned journalist Amaresh Misra opined, “As soon as the role and contribution of Ulema is included in the national syllabus, the brotherhood and love would automatically emanate in the new generation”. He called upon the authorities of Madrasas to spread and propagate the contributions of Ulema among the other communities of India.
