The Union Finance Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee has ear marked 100 Crore for Aligarh Muslim University for their upcoming Centres in Murshidabad in West Bengal and Malappuram in Kerala and a whopping 200 Crore for Maulana Azad Education foundation.

While Aligarh University got 50 crore each for it’s two centres to promote Arabic and Islamic studies there were no mention about any funds to popularize Sanskrit. The discrimination is more visible when Pranab da earmarks only 10 crore for setting up Kolkata and Allahabad centres of Mahatma Gandhi Antarrashtriya Hindi Vishwavidyalaya, Wardha.
