Vocalist Mumtaz received her doctorate degree
Mamtaz Begum, a Bangladeshi folk singer and MP, was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Global Human Peace University in Tamil Nadu, India for her contribution to society.
Mumtaz got the good news at a time when there was only news of depression coming from all around. Mumtaz said on Facebook, “Eyes and minds are tired of seeing bad news. Sadness or happiness comes with sleep, just like seeing bad news, I could not stay at home after getting good news. I came out with courage. ‘
Last Saturday, Mumtaz was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Global Human Peace University in Tamil Nadu, India. Mumtaz wrote the words on her Facebook from the airport before going to bring the award.
According to Global Human Peace University, as an artist, Mumtaz has taken herself to new heights by recording more than 700 solo albums, promoting Bengali music to the world for 30 long years and engaging in various activities besides social service. That’s why they awarded him the degree of ‘Doctor of Music’ through a special ceremony.
P Manuel, the founder and chairman of the university, handed over the award to Mumtaz. At the same time, former Chennai District Judge Thiru AJ Muruganantham and Tamil Nadu spiritual guru Khalifa Mastan Saheb received honorary doctorates.
Mumtaz returned home on Monday with a degree. Expressing his feelings, the artist said, ‘It’s a big find for me. For 30 years I have been singing Ma-Mati; I have served people. This achievement will inspire me to work harder. ‘
Mumtaz became a Member of Parliament on the nomination of Awami League in the 10th National Assembly elections. The artist was elected from Manikganj-2 constituency in the 2016 parliamentary elections.
