Come out of the inferiority complex and strive to define India’s future with your skills and talents, urged IAS Mohammed Ali Rafath while addressing a monthly students’ gathering in Hyderabad on May 4, 2014.
Speaking at the program themed “Preparing Students and Youth for Future Endeavors” organized by Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO), Hyderabad West Division at Masjid-e-Azizia in Mehdipatnam, Mr. Rafath asked students and youth to work for social equity and equality.
He also spoke about the importance of primary education citing the facts that more than 75% of graduates are not job ready, that the youngsters lack communication skills and also that there is immense lack of general knowledge and awareness among them.
Mr. Rafat remarked that the bright students are leaving for foreign lands instead of serving the country, while also pointing towards the strong need to change the thought process of people and society, and for collective vision.
Highlighting the institutions providing free coaching for Civil Service Examinations, he also noted that financial support is also available for the same for the deserving students. “We need to have an obsession and passion to clear the civil service exams and should be ready to sacrifice jobs at early age”, he said.
Mr. Rafat also asked students and youth to bridge the skill gap due to lack of good primary education. He stressed on the fact that students need to be ready for any technology explosion, citing example of his generation where they had to learn computer skills at a later age.
Director of Islamic Information Center (IIC), Mr. Tariq Muneer, highlighted the need for developing experts in all fields of studies in order to be able to contribute for a better society.
