Hyderabad: A one-day state level programme ‘Telangana Youthquake – 2018’ with the theme ‘Questioning Present – Envisioning Future’ will be conducted for students and youth in September.
Speaking to media persons on Wednesday, state president SIO, Laeeq Ahmed Khan lamented the sad situation in the newly-formed State that half-a-million children still don’t go to school and about half-a-million State’s population remains illiterate.
He said that even those who come under the sphere of literate lack ethics and morality. "The heinous face of this scourge got exposed in the recent drug scandal which tarnished the image of Hyderabad as global city," he added.
While referring to BSE - CMIE report, Laeeq said that Telangana has the third highest level of unemployed graduates in the country. He pointed out that rape cases increased by 6 per cent, while the cases of physical offences shot up by 34 per cent, mostly crimes against women. “We call upon the youth to realize the gravity of the situation and their significance at this critical juncture. This programme will surely help demolish the unjust and unethical hollow establishments of poverty, inequality, illiteracy, immorality etc and will go down in a history as Telangana’s Youthquake,” asserted the State president of the organisation.
A declaration programme for this event was conducted at Birla Auditorium in the month of April. Representatives of Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) of India, Telangana Zone from across the state attended this declaration event. It may be mentioned here that the word ‘Youthquake’ is defined as ‘a significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people’. This word was chosen as the Oxford Dictionaries’ Word of the Year for 2017.
