Viqarul-Mulk Hall, Aligarh Muslim University
Annual Hall Reports-2019
By Md. Ashraf
To begin with I thank Almighty ?ALLAH? who guided us all to accomplish our Annual Hall Function ?AL-VIQAR-2019? and blessed us to assemble here.
I would first like to dedicate the Annual Hall Function (AL-VIQAR-2019) to ?Sir Syed? the great visionary and reformer whose untiring efforts paved the way for the establishment of Aligarh Muslim University, which is today serving the purpose of upliftment of Muslim community and in turn the Nation as a whole. In continuation with the traditions of Aligarh Muslim University and especially those traditions preserved and maintained by the versatile resident members of V.M. Hall. I, as the Senior Hall of V.M. Hall on behalf of the resident members of this hall, welcome our Chief Guest of the evening, our beloved alumni of Viqar-ul-Mulk Hall Janab Mohammad Furqan Sb (Mayor, Aligarh). I also would like to welcome our special Guest Prof Jamshed Siddiqui, Dean Student?s Welfare, and Guest of Honour Prof. B.P. Singh, Department of Physics, AMU, Aligarh. Your arrival and participation have made the event enormously gracious.
I also welcome our eminent distinguished guests of the evening. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the resident members of V.M. Hall for the efforts & cooperation shown by them in organizing our Hall function successfully. On this historic occasion of Annual Hall Function in the legendary V.M. Hall, before proceeding any further regarding the presentation of Annual Hall Report, I would like to brief the assembled Guests about Molvi Mushtaq Husain, famously known as Nawab Viqar-ul-Mulk on whose name this residential Hall has been named. Viqar-ul-Mulk a close confidant of Sir Syed was one of the very few members of Muslim intellectuals who always kept the Aligarh Movement above his own personal interests and never budged to any kind of external pressure. In spite of facing many hardships after the death of Sir Syed, Viqar-ul-Mulk continued to work for the cause of Aligarh Movement and managed to raise seven lacs fifty thousand in cash, which later paved the way for the establishment of Aligarh Muslim University in its present state. In recognition of his massive contribution to the cause of Aligarh Movement, during the Vice-Chancellorship of Sir Ross Masood, Viqar-ul-Mulk was honoured when the first hall of residence outside the original M.A.O. College campus was named after him. Therefore, on behalf of resident members of V.M. Hall. I would like to state that we are honoured and find ourselves lucky by the grace of Almighty ALLAH that we are the torch bearers of the historical legacy of Nawab Viqar-ul-Mulk.
During the Vice Chancellor ship of Sir Ross Masood, Viqarul Mulk Hall was set up in 1932 which comprises of four hostels namely Jubilee Hostel which has a well-furnished common room, Nasrullah Hostel which has a Grand Dining Hall, Muzzammil Hostel which has a beautiful Mosque, Marris Hostel which boasts of having the first Auditorium of AMU.
