A Muslim female student in India has obtained her PhD in Sanskrit language from Gujarat University, setting a new milestone to this regard, reports TOI.
The thesis title of the student Salma Qureshi (26) was ‘Puraneshu Nirupita Siksha Paddhati Ekam Adhyayan’. This budding scholar did her PhD under the guidance of Professor Atul Unagar.
Salma Qureshi was a student of Department of Sanskrit Language at the university.
She had graduation from Saurashtra University situated in Rajkot in the western Indian state of Gujarat.
Then she did her Master’s with a gold medal from Maharaja Krishnakumarsinhji Bhavnagar University in the same state.
In pursuit of PhD, Qureshi had joined Gujarat University’s PhD Programme in 2017. So it has taken her 3 years to finish doctoral study.
As a potential career field, she aspires to get self involved in teaching.

Shubham, a resident of Alwar district in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, is philosophy graduate from Delhi University.
