Muslim student numbers in higher education fall – Survey
The AISHE report is prepared by the ministry of education on different parameters including student enrolment, teachers’ data, infrastructure and financial information. An analysis of the AISHE 2020-21 data, part of a larger report titled State of Muslim Education in India by educationist Arun C Mehta, has found that the total enrolment of Muslim students declined from over 2.1 million in 2019-20 to 1.92 million in 2020-21.
Mehta’s analysis also reveals that the percentage of Muslim student enrolment to total enrolment dropped in 2020-21. In 2019-20, Muslim students amounted to 5.45% of the total students in higher education institutions, but the percentage dipped to 4.64% in 2020-21. This dip in the percentage of Muslim students is true for both male and female students.
