Mangalore/Doha May 11: Fathima Raeesa of Mangalore has yet another reason to celebrate. She has secured third rank in Science in Karnataka State II PUC examinations held in March 2011. For those who knew Raeesa from her childhood, it didn’t come as a surprise, as she has been receiving academic accolades right from elementary school.

Raeesa has scored 95.50% in Science stream with 97 in Chemistry, 95 each in Physics, Biology and Mathematics, and in English and Hindi she has scored 92 and 93 respectively.

Raeesa was a student of St. Annes PU College in Mangalore where she had also served as college pupil leader. She is the ex-student of Ideal and MES Indian schools in Doha - Qatar where she studied Urdu as a second language. It is interesting to note that although Raeesa was an Urdu language student she has scored high marks in Hindi.

It can be also recalled here that Raeesa had topped the list in Urdu language in Doha - Qatar among the students appeared from Indian schools for all India Secondary School Examination of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) New Delhi in 2009. Fathima has interest in literature and while in Qatar, she had participated in debate and elocution competitions of Urdu and English languages.  Born in Qatar Raeesa is the daughter of Mr. Mumtaz Hussain, an entrepreneur and Mrs. Ishrath Jahan, both hailing from Mangalore.

Speaking to Mangalorean.Com, Mr Hussain said “Raeesa has done us proud by securing third rank and we are very happy with her results. We cannot express our joy in words.” When asked about her future plan for higher education, Raeesa had no second thought; she said “it is already decided; I want to pursue my higher studies in medicines.”

Hearty congratualions to Ms. Raeesa Fatima for continuing her journey of sucess and may Allah help you repeat it again and again in the future. For those who know Mr. Mumtaz and his kids this is definetely not a surprise. Both the sisters have been gifted by god with extraordinary talent in not just academics but all other extra curricular activities too. Its all with Allahs blessings and unrelenting support from both the parents Mr. Mumtaz and Mrs. Ishart Jahan these kids have made a sort of habit of repeating the extrordinary. May Allah help her in helping the humanity with the new career she has chosen for herself.
First on 12th morning a St. Annes college student; my neighbor, told me that Fathima Raeesa is our college pupil leader and she topper in college.

My happiness was doubled when i read in mcom that she is topper in Managlore city and 3rd rank in karnataka.

I know the parents of Raeesa and they have very well taken care of their chidrens education & also they cotribute poor childrens education in Managlore.

Best Wishes for Raeesa

Congratulations to this brilliant young lady for achieving very high marks.I take it that she will study medicine at the prestigious KMC Mangalore/Manipal. In fact any medical college will be proud to have her as a student. May she learn the art of healing and make our people happy and healthy.

Hi Austin, All,

Let us congratulate Raeesa on her achievement rather than commenting on religious beliefs and ethics.


Congratulations. Hope to see you climb the ladder of success and achieve many more.
Mohammed Hanif, India May 12, 2011
Dear Austin Prabhu,
I appreciate your response.
When we discuss things, like what we are doing here right now, we understand each others point of view better. And we should do that because we are brothers in Humanity. We all are creations of one alimighty god.

Admist all this , i forgot to wish Raeesa on her achievements. Congrats Raeesa. I am sure this is just the beginning and we will hear many more success stories of yours, in future.
Incidently the first verse revealed in the holy Quran is "LEARN". So its compulsory for every muslim, men and women to Learn.
Austin Prabhu, USA May 12, 2011
Thanks Mohammed Haneef for your sincere opinion. I respect your views.

Dear Austin Prabhu,

I respect your point of view, but i don't quite agree with it.
From your perspective wearing Burkha is a sign of supression by muslim men, which might be true in few cases.But a large majority of muslim women wear burkha by their free will.They take pride in wearing that.I can tell you from what i see in my house.we have 4 working women in my house, 3 engineers employeed in CMM Level 5 Companies and one medical docter.We never forced them to wear Burkka.Never.But they wear it by their own will.They take pride when people identify them as muslims.I think you sould interospect a little before making a weak statement like this.
I know that your intention is not wrong, but saying that burka is only a sign of opression is a very narrow minded thinking.1.5 billion muslims cant be wrong.There is more to wearing Burkha than what you think sir.

If i have to say that wearing saree is a sign of degrading women and women wear saree because men force them to wear it, dont you find it funny? Thats exactly what i felt when i read your comments.

Congratulations to Fathima Raeesa on securing III Rank in Science in Karnataka. keep it up
Austin Prabhu, USA May 11, 2011
Congratulations to Fathima Raeesa on securing III Rank in Science in Karnataka. You have shown your community that nothing is impossible in this world. If there were not so many controls in Muslim world by men on women there would have been many more climbed the ladder of success.

It is time for Muslim women to come out of the box (Burqa)and see the real world of 21st century. Stay away from fanaticism and worship true Allah. No religion including Christianity in this world should control our freedom of life. It may taste sour to many; however, there is nothing wrong in expressing the truth. Gone are the days, we cannot still keep on typing on the typewriter; there are computers, I phones, etc. It is time to change for the better.
Puttur Dinesh, USA May 11, 2011
She is a role model for many women in the Muslim community. Education of women is the key to uplift any community. The catholic diocese in mangalore should partner with Muslim associations to educate more women.

May be some day when I have some money I will start a foundation for provide scholarship.

Also this reminds me of Hajabba from mangalore who is educating the children in his village.
