For the first time in the history of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), a women has been elected to the executive council of the AMUTA (Aligarh Muslim University Teachers Association).
Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has elected S Chandni Bi, assistant professor of history, to the executive council of the AMUTA (Aligarh Muslim University Teachers Association).
"It's a significant development and I hope to further the cause of women's emancipation, a cherished wish of the founder of the AMU, Sir Syed (Ahmed Khan). I would say the university is evolving and gradually responding to changing demands and perceptions. The AMU teachers association is an important body and can effect significant changes," said Chandni Bi.
Chandni Bi was unanimously elected along with four other members -- Waseem Raja, Abdul Hakim Khan, Inamuddin and Shakir Ali -- to the executive council.
