Aligarh – 202002 (UP) – INDIA
The university grew out of the work of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, the great Muslim reformer and statesman, who in the aftermath of the Indian War of Independence of 1857 felt that it was important for Muslims to gain education and become involved in the public life and government services in India. Raja Jai Kishan helped Sir Syed in establishing the university
The British decision to replace the use of Persian in 1842 for government employment and as the language of Courts of Law caused deep anxiety among Muslims of the sub-continent. Sir Syed saw a need for Muslims to acquire proficiency in the English language and Western sciences if the community were to maintain its social and political clout, particularly in Northern India. He began to prepare foundation for the formation of a Muslim University by starting schools at Moradabad (1858) and Ghazipur (1863).His purpose for the establishment of the Scientific Society in 1864, in Aligarh was to translate Western works into Indian languages as a prelude to prepare the community to accept Western education and to inculcate scientific temperament among the Muslims. The intense desire to ameliorate the social conditions of Indian Muslims led Sir Syed to publish the periodical, ‘Tehzibul Akhlaq’ in 1870.

Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is one of the oldest premier Central Universities of India with a
unique and rich culture of its own. It owes its existence to the selfless and untiring efforts of the great visionary SIR SYED AHMAD KHAN. Deeply moved by the socio-economic and educational plight of his community after the First War of Independence of 1857, he was quick to realize that the panacea for these ills lay in inculcating the spirit of free enquiry and modernism in the community. His exposure to the British Universities, particularly those at Oxford and Cambridge, and their public schools, inspired him with a new vision of a harmonious pattern of culture, combining the best elements in the cultures of the East with the arts and sciences of the West. In 1875 he founded a High School at Aligarh, which, within three years, was raised to a College known as Mohammadan Anglo Oriental College which metamorphosed into Aligarh Muslim University in 1920 through an Act of Parliament. Due attention was also paid to the education of girls. In 1942 the Muslim Girls’ School was raised to the status of a full-fledged Degree College for Women. Since 1951 it is one of the several institutions maintained by Aligarh Muslim University. Undergraduate women students in the Faculties of Agricultural Sciences, Arts, Commerce, Life Sciences, Science, Social Sciences and International Studies receive instructions in the Women’s College.
In tune with the ideals of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and with the aim to impart quality education to a larger section of the community, Aligarh Muslim University proposed opening of AMU Centres at different locations throughout the country. The proposed Centres were envisaged to grow and be replicas of the University. In the year 2010, AMU Centre at Malappuram, Kerala and AMU Centre at Murshidabad, West Bengal came into existence with students being admitted to courses in Law and Management. In the year 2013, AMU Centre at Kishanganj, Bihar was also established and B.Ed. programme was started at all three Centres.
