Rajasthan-based Mody University, a leading women’s education hub, has offered a lifetime of free education for the daughters of the 18 soldiers who lost their lives in the recent Uri terrorist attack. Mody School, which also resides on the same campus, will provide education from the 3rd standard; while the university will support education upto Ph.D level.
Mr. R.P. Mody, the founder of the university shared “We salute the valor of the soldiers, who lost their lives while defending our nation during this unfortunate incident. Mody University has always been in the forefront of furthering the cause of girl education and empowerment, and this is our little contribution to honor the brave soldiers. This is a cause that is personally close to me.“
The university believes that it is the nation’s collective moral responsibility to support the families of the soldiers in the best way possible, and as part of this national consciousness, Mody University will impart world-class free education to all the daughters of these families.
Towards this, the President of Mody University, Dr. Suresh Advani, has written a letter to the Chief of Army Staff. Here is an extract
“On behalf of all the Students, Faculty members, Non-teaching staff and the Management team of Mody University, Lakshmangarh, Rajasthan, I wish to share with you our deep sense of sorrow and anguish at the dastardly attack on the Army Base at Uri (Kashmir) and the consequent loss of life of our brave soldiers. Apart from the mental, emotional and psychological impact of the loss of life of their dear ones, the families of the martyred soldiers would have to face tremendous financial hardships, not to speak of the great uncertainty before them. In honour of these soldiers, we at Mody University, hereby commit to offer free education to the daughters of these martyred soldiers at our campus at Lakshmangarh, Rajasthan from class III to Ph.D.“
