Aligarh: Academic scholars and students pursuing graduation, post-graduation and diploma courses at the Education Department of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) participated in essay competitions and poster-making, debates and patriotic song contests with nationalist zeal and fervor to observe the ‘Har campaign of Ghar Tiranga and commemorate 75 years of Indian independence.
“The celebrations at the Ministry of Education invoked patriotism in the hearts of students and staff and reminded them of the contribution of freedom fighters to Indian independence. The National Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign has been very significant in promoting awareness of the Indian National Flag,” Prof. Mujibul Hasan Siddiqui (Chairman of the Ministry of Education) said.
Dr. Mohammad Hanif Ahmad (Programme Coordinator) emphasized, “The ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ program has inspired Indians around the world to raise the national flag at home. The campaign made the relationship with the national flag more personal rather than keeping it formal or institutional. It also reminded us of the sacrifices of great leaders.”
Professor Nasrin evaluated the students’ essays and posters and judged the debate and the patriotic song contest.
Dr. Hanif Ahmad extended the vote of thanks.
