Late Prof. Shamim Jairajpuri

Late Prof. Shamim Jairajpuri :  A Bright Academia and scientist 

SYED M. NASEEMWashington DC,  January 10, 2023 

Professor Shamim Jirajpuri completed his Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. from Aligarh Muslim University.  His wife Durdana Jairajpuri, was also a Professor of Zoology at AMU. 


Prof. Shamim Jairajpuri received a prestigious membership in the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his outstanding research and academic contribution to the field of Zoology.  


Former Vice Chancellor, of Moulana Azad National Urdu University, Hyderabad, Professor Shamim Jairajpuri, was appointed Vice President of the prestigious Institution of the National Academy of Sciences.  The President of the Academy Professor Gourodhan Mehta announced his appointment on October 16th, 2000.  


Professor Jairajpuri, former Dean, of Life Sciences AMU was appointed as Director General of the Zoological Survey of India.  According to the report, he published 20 textbooks, 400 manuscripts, and monograms.  Guided many students for M. Phil and Ph.D. degrees. 


Prof. Shamim Jairajpuri is an eminent scientist with an international reputation in his field, was Nominated as a Member of the BHU Court on July 15, 2009 

Prof. Shamim Jairajpuri Sahib opened a new Institute in the Department of Zoology and worked there every day 8-5 six days a week till his retirement and moving to Delhi. 

With his sad demise, Aligarh has lost one of the most distinguished Scientific scholars in the university. The vacuum created by his departure is hard to fill, but the example that has set will continue to enlighten the path of many young Algerians, who I am sure, will rise and excel to set yet a new example, which will indeed be a true reverence to the departed soul.

My heartfelt condolences to his wife, Prof. Durdana Farooqi, their daughter, and other members of the bereaved family. His Ph.D. mentor Professor Athar Siddiqui, also passed away a few backs back.
