Pulwama, March 23: Save Youth Save Future, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) has started a campaign to advocate skill-based modern education among seminary students across various districts of Jammu & Kashmir. 
Mudasir Ahmad Dar, South Kashmir head of the organisation, told Rising Kashmir that they launched the initiative from North Kashmir’s Baramulla district. He said the organisation works for “peace-building” within the J&K region.
Dar said they have been holding seminars on the importance of skill-based modern education along with religious education in seminaries.
“So far, three seminars were held in three Dar-ul Ulooms at Baramulla, Shopian and Pulwama,” he said, adding that their basic motive is to equip students (Talibs) memorising religious texts in these seminaries with modern education so that they don’t lag behind in the competitive job market.
“A Hafiz (one who memorises the holy Qur’an by heart) should be a good doctor, engineer or a professor,” he said, adding that it should not be necessary for a Hafiz to become a clergy only.
Mudasir said they conduct the seminars in support of the administration of the concerned districts. “We also invite experts from various departments including information technology to enlighten the seminary students about various avenues and opportunities in this sector,” he said.
Our NGO acts as a bridge between a seminary and skill-based modern education imparting institutions, Dar said, adding,  “Apart from conducting seminars, the NGO also donates stationery items, sports kits and electronic equipment to the seminaries.”
