He pointed out that development of education is a must in this age of science and technology and it should be the collective responsibility for all.

He also expressed serious concern over the problem of drug abuse among the Muslim youths in Manipur today.

Participating in the function, vice president of United Committee Manipur (UCM) acknowledged that Muslim brethren have been contributing their mite in various important issues of the State and said that this shows the close relation among all the communities living in Manipur.

Asserting that the system of education in Manipur today is at its lowest ebb, Robert pointed out that students have not been able to study in peace. The rot that has eaten into the education system should be rectified while there is time.

Speaking on the same line, president of Democratic Students’ Alliance of Manipur LC Santosh said that improvement of education system is essential for complete education of students.

The flaw in the system is due to lack of able leadership and the present lot of leaders should be taught a lesson, he added.

Yet they have not been made any significant contribution. So, Muslims should play active role and participate in creating the history of Manipur.
