Join Agnipath: Imamfrom Kanpur Mosques | Kanpur News


Kanpur: A group of clerics and Muslim intellectuals in Kanpur made an appeal before and after Friday prayers asking community youths to apply for the newly launched Agnipath scheme and to utilize the opportunity and serve the country by joining the defence forces. The appeal was made from the majority of the mosques in the city.
The initiative has been started under the banner of Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP) that works for the cause of education for Muslim children.
Maulana Meraj Ashrafi, Imam of Nanpara Mosque at Yateem Khana crossing, said that the youngsters should apply for the Agnipath scheme. “This is a good opportunity which involves not only employment but also an opportunity to serve the country,” said Ashrafi. “This is a good initiative of the government. On Friday, we asked people to grab the opportunity and get their eligible children to apply for the scheme,” said Qari Idrees, a cleric at a mosque in Chaubeypur.
Last week, violence marred several states, including Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Telangana, while peaceful agitations were held in several places against the scheme.
