Srinagar: Kashmir Universitys Markaz-i-Noor Centre for Shaikh-ul-Alam Studies (CSAS) on Saturday organised a special lecture on life and contributions of renowned scholar and academician, late Prof Muhammad Amin Andrabi.
The lecture was organised to commemorate Prof Amin Andrabis 15th death anniversary.
Vice-Chancellor Prof Khurshid Iqbal Andrabi presided over the lecture session and prayed for peace to the departed soul. He said its a good endeavour to remember academicians and researchers who have contributed significantly to the society in general and the University in particular. We must neither ignore, nor forget the contributions of our predecessors, he said.
Conduct of a person in his daily life is what matters the most. Today we remember Prof Amin Andrabi for not only the knowledge and scholarship he possessed, but the way he conducted himself in the society, the Vice-Chancellor said. It is therefore this conduct with our fellow beings, in both our personal and professional lives, for which we shall be remembered.
The Vice-Chancellor also released the latest volume of Alamdar, the annual journal of CSAS.
In his welcome address, Dr M S Sumbli, Chairman of CSAS spoke in detail about his personal and professional association with Prof Amin Andrabi. Prof Amin Andrabi was personally known to me as a teacher and mentor and he has left a great legacy behind which we need to preserve for our posterity, he said.
On the occasion, Prof Taskeena Fazil presented a paper on life of Prof Amin Andrabi during which she recalled his contribution while he headed the Iqbal Institute of Culture and Philosophy (IICP) at the University.
Apart from several University teachers and scholars, Dean Faculty of Social Sciences Prof Naseem A Shah and Prof Nusrat Andrabi, wife of late Prof Muhammad Amin Andrabi were also present on the occasion.
