According to an official release, speaking on the occasion, the President said he was very happy to attend the golden jubilee celebrations of the MC. Mahajan DAV College for Women.

Inspired by the vision of the great social reformer Swami Dayanand Saraswati as well as the former Chief Justice of India, late Mehar Chand Mahajan, this college has been playing an important role in the field of female education. MCM DAV College has contributed greatly to women's education in north India in the past five decades, it added.

According to the scribe, Dr Satish Kapoor, Dayanand Anglo Vedic College Trust and Management Society (popularly called DAV) was established three years after Swami Dayanand Saraswati's death to mark the beginning of DAV movement aimed at crystallizing his social and educational ideas.

"The DAV movement grew out of the dialectical interplay between the forces of orthodoxy and heterodoxy, revivalism and reform, faith and reason. It gushed forth with a new sense of purpose and direction in response to the Western challenge, emergence of new socio-economic milieu and rise of new middle class, and converged the quintessential aspects of the Vedic tradition with the prevailing spirit of science, rationality and humanism," says Kapoor in one of his articles.
