SS Bicentenary Invitation

Dear All,

We are pleased to announce that The Aligarh Alumni Association Washington DC (AAA-DC) is celebrating the bicentennial of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan’s birth on Saturday, September 9, 2017, at the Turkish auditorium, part of the majestic, newly built Turkish Mosque and Cultural Center in Maryland. A lively and eclectic program is being drawn up for the occasion that will include lectures by eminent scholars, an exhibition of historic pictures and documents, demonstration of the classic Indian art of Dastan Goii (story telling), culminating in a sumptuous dinner. More details will be forthcoming later.

We would like to invite you to join us, either as individual or as part of the group/organization, to participate in this historic event, designed to pay homage to one of the greatest benefactors of our nation. In addition, your participation will provide you with an opportunity to renew old friendships and make some new friends.

The AAA-DC, established in 1975, is the oldest organization of the AMU Alumni in North America. It has been successfully disseminating the message of the Aligarh movement, leading to the establishment of twelve new alumni associations throughout North America and The Federation of Aligarh Alumni Associations (FAAA). We continue to be involved in the promotion of charitable, cultural and literary work in the greater Washington, DC, area and at the AMU.
