Six AMU Girls’ Hostels Named After Eminent Freedom Fighters And Distinguished Ladies
Aligarh, August 17 (TNA) In order to recognize the seminal services rendered by the eminent freedom fighters and distinguished ladies, the Aligarh Muslim University has decided to name six hostels for girl students after Begum Hazrat Mahal, Annie Besant, Nawab Sikander Jahan (Bhopal), Madam Bhikaji Cama (an eminent social worker, philanthropist and a women’s right activist), Hamida Habibullah (an Indian parliamentarian and social worker) and Kadambini Ganguly (the first Indian woman to practice medicine in India).
The Aligarh Muslim University Vice Chancellor Professor Tariq Mansoor inaugurated the six hostels and an ATM kiosk at the Begum Azizun Nisa Hall on August 15. The inauguration was held after the flag hoisting programme in the Hall premises as part of the 75th Independence Day celebrations.
Professor Mansoor said that the distinguished personalities after whose names the hostels have been christened will continue to inspire generations of women who come to stay in this Hall of residence.
