Aligarh: “A research work should be innovative and unique in inferences as it is not only about collecting data and writing a thesis but a tedious job to find out something new that makes human life better in quality”, said Prof KVSM Krishna (Vice-Chancellor, Mangalayatan University, Aligarh) while addressing a three-day Research Methodology workshop organized by the Faculty of Law, Aligarh Muslim University.
Prof Krishna said that research is a science of perception and a researcher has to excel in this science if he wants his work to be unique and applicable to a wider social framework.
Delivering the keynote address, Prof Saud Alam Qasmi (Editor, Tahzibul Akhlaq) said all developments are related to research and all religious scriptures have urged the human being to ponder over the natural phenomena and make empirical deductions through data assimilation and analyses.
Prof Qasmi stressed that it was compulsory for a researcher to be true in his inferences and application of collected data for the larger benefit of humanity. He urged the researchers to work for the betterment of society irrespective of all distinctions.
The chief guests, Prof Tamkin Khan (Chairperson, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, J N Medical College, AMU) said that collection and assimilation of data are important parts of research work and a researcher has to work extensively on these activities before writing his thesis. She said that collection of data was not a tedious job as in earlier times, as the development of technological devices has made it comparatively easier for a researcher to sift online material related to his work that might be available in different libraries.
Earlier, welcoming the guests, Prof Shakeel Samdani, Dean, Faculty of Law and Director of the workshop, said that the workshop will provide the students with ample knowledge in research methodology. He said this university is known for quality research and the standard of research has further been raised over the last few years. He said that the Faculty of Law will organize more such programmes for the benefit of students.
The workshop coordinator, Prof Zafar M Nomani elaborated the workshop schedule and urged the participants to utilize this opportunity to get maximum benefits. He said research is not based on the course but a discourse, as well. He said that a researcher should not fall prey to typical processes but make efforts to achieve uniqueness in his findings.
Prof Zaheeruddin proposed a vote of thanks.
