Jamia Millia Islamia played remarkable role in Indian freedom movement

New Delhi: Chancellor Jamia Millia Islamia and Manipur governor Dr Najma Heptulla said that when the Jamia was facing difficult times, the Mahatma Gandhi had said, I would not hesitate to go about with a begging bowl to save the Jamia. This is the reason that the services of Jamia Millia Islamia are unique and remarkable. The founders of the Jamia gave sleepless nights to the British rulers by initiating war against them. Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sarojini Naidu, Rabindranath Tagore and Maulana Abul Kalam Azad tried to make it a national institution.

Najma Heptulla was addressing at the annual certificate distribution function of the Jamia. Dr Harsh Vardhan attended the function as chief guest. In her address, Dr Najma Heptulla said Jamia Millia Islamia greatly helped in fulfilling the digital Bharat and skill Bharathi dream of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
