Abstract (Original Language): 
The role of education in facilitating social and economic progress is well accepted today.The literacy rate among Muslims in 2001 was far below the national average. Education contributes to economic growth.Education is a crucial social factor that initiates the process of social, economic and cultural development of communitiesv. Muslim girls are among the least educated sections of Indian society. The Constitution of India in Article 15(1) on right to equality, provides the basic policy framework that enshrines the vision of girls' education and the spirit in which their education is to be provided.
