Hatred more in north India than south: Arshad Madani


New Delhi, Nov 24 | After being elected Vice President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board, Arshad Madani said that all sections of the society should come together to fight sectarianism and muslims alone could not fight the hatred being spread by a handful of people particularly in north India.

Maulana Madani said, “we cannot win the war against sectarianism alone. We have to bring together all secular-minded people of the society. We have to come together to put out this fire of hatred and sectarianism. If we do so, we can defeat the sectarian forces.”

Explaining the game of sectarianism and hatred in north India in comparison with south, he said, “the main reason for this is political interest. Provocation and outrageous statements are being made to create sectarian classification at the social level in order to achieve success in their nefarious plans by completely isolating the majority from the minority.”

He further said that there are only a handful of people who are fanning the flames of hatred and sectarianism but they are powerful because they have the backing of the people who are in power, and therefore the hands of law cannot reach their necks.

Maulana Madani also said that hatred cannot be countered with hatred, only ignorant people can try to extinguish the fire with fire. “In contrast, we must promote brotherhood, unity and love, which has been our and our country’s long history. This history must be revived,” he said.

Madani said the government’s attitude towards the issues regarding the growing dangers of sectarianism in the country, and the things that have been presented in the whole country, is based on hatred and prejudice.

“Interference in Sharia rules is in fact based on the same politics of hatred and prejudice. We have apparently no power to stop these things, and those who are doing this have the power of authority which is considered to be the greatest power in today’s world,” Madani said.

But there are many people in the country who consider the current situation as worrisome, and they are unhappy with what is happening against a certain class of people in the last few years. They also think that such things are very dangerous and harmful for the country.

“Therefore, in order to counter this conspiracy, we have to bring together all those people of the majority who consider these things as wrong, and who believe that such politics is extremely dangerous for the unity, integrity and development of the country,” he said.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal Campusutra.com  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
