Closer Look: Aligarh Movement

By Kashif-ul-Huda,

There are three myths about the Aligarh movement: it was simply a movement for education, Aligarh Muslim University IS the movement, and that the movement is long dead. Syed Ahmed Khan’s concerns, visions, and efforts for the Indian Muslims came to be later known as the Aligarh Movement but it was not simply a movement to make Muslims learn Western education or even the establishment of a university. It was a movement to give mission to a community that seemed to have lost its bearing in the fast-changing world, to prepare them for new challenges, and give them new tools to connect back to their religion and history. Incredibly, Muslims of India still face these issues and the need for Aligarh movement is still alive.

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 ( and member of AMU Alumni Advisory Committee that recommended setting up AMU branches in different states.

A critical biographical note on Dr (Sir) Ziauddin Ahmad

Naved Masood*

Dr (Sir) Ziauddin Ahmad, Vice-Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University (13.4.1935 to 29.4.1938 and 24.4.1941 to 23.4.1947)

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.
