Aligarh Movement: Past, present, and future




“Sir Saiyad was a prophet of education “ -- Mahatma Gandhi

Aligarh movement was led by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan to bring Indian Muslims closer to modern and scientific education. Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is one of the fruit of that movement. What has been the contribution of Aligarh movement and AMU to India in general and Muslims in particular? 135 years later where is Aligarh movement headed?

Three people furthering the cause of Aligarh movement in their own ways will discuss the significance and importance of Aligarh movement and its future:

Ali Rizvi , Ex-President of Federation of Aligarh Alumni Associations (http://www.aligs.org/) and member of AMU Alumni Advisory Committee that recommended setting up AMU branches in different states.

ہوگا کہیں فلک پر خورشید جلوہ گر
کہتے ہیں کی آفتاب کبھی ڈوبتا نہیں

For the first time when I paid a visit to the graveyard of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan in Jama Masjid, AMU Aligarh, I saw 2 other graves next to him. One was Sir Ross Masood and other Dr. Sir Ziauddin Ahmed. To get a place next to Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, someone must be very close to him or should have done something remarkable to realize his dream.
We all know that Dr. Ziauddin Ahmad has no blood relation with Sir Syed but he was a true disciple of Sir Syed and his mission and spent his entire life to realize the dream of Sir Syed and finally found a place next to his mentor and ideal, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan.

The New Centres of Aligarh Muslim University : A Beginning of Resurgence


Dr. Rahat Abrar

The mission of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, a symbol of Muslim renaissance in India was not only to establish an educational institution at Aligarh but his vision was that this institution gains the central position among Muslims by providing them leadership in educational matters and all Muslim institutions are affiliated with this. It is a great moment that the dream of Sir Syed is going to materialize with the establishment of Aligarh Muslim University’s centres in Murshidabad (West Bengal) and Malappuram (Kerala). It looks pertinent to turn attention to the chronology of events that culminated into establishment of new centres of AMU.
