Hyderabad: Education is more needed today than it was before. Deviation from education leads to backwardness. Today Muslims are the second largest community in the world. In the next half century they will become the first largest community. Hence Muslims should get themselves educated. These views were expressed by Siasat editor Mr. Zahid Ali Khan. He was addressing the scholarship distribution function here at Mahboob Husain Jigar Hall, Abids, organised by Indo-British Muslim Educational Foundation, London.
Mr. Zahid Ali Khan urged parents to impart education to their girl children as well. He asked the students to learn English as it is the international language. He also advised them to learn Telugu as well because it is the local and state’s official language.
