About Aligarh Muslim University Online

About Us 

The roots of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) can be traced back to the visionary efforts of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, a prominent Muslim reformer and statesman during the aftermath of the Indian War of Independence in 1857. Recognizing the significance of education for Muslims in India, Sir Syed, with the assistance of Raja Jai Kishan, laid the groundwork for the university. The British decision to replace Persian with English in government employment and legal proceedings in 1842 created concerns among Muslims. Sir Syed, understanding the importance of English proficiency and Western education, initiated the establishment of schools in Moradabad (1858) and Ghazipur (1863). In 1864, he founded the Scientific Society in Aligarh, aiming to translate Western works into Indian languages and prepare the community for Western education. Sir Syed's commitment to improving the social conditions of Indian Muslims led to the publication of the periodical 'Tehzibul Akhlaq' in 1870.


On January 7, 1877, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan established the Muhammadan Anglo-Oriental College in Aligarh, drawing inspiration from his visits to Oxford and Cambridge universities in England. His vision was to create a college aligned with the British education system while preserving Islamic values. Following his return from England in 1872, Sir Syed's son, Syed Mahmood, who had also studied at Cambridge, presented a proposal for an independent university to the Muhammadan Anglo-Oriental College Fund Committee. This proposal was accepted and underwent subsequent modifications. Both father and son, Sir Syed and Syed Mahmood, collaborated in the foundation of the college.


It was one of the first purely residential educational institutions set up either by the government or the public in India. Over the years it gave rise to a new educated class of Indian Muslims who were active in the political system of the British Raj. When viceroy to India Lord Curzon visited the college in 1901, he praised the work which was carried on and called it of "sovereign importance".

It was also around this time that a movement began to have it develop into a university. To achieve this goal, expansions were made and more academic programs added to the curriculum of the college. A school for girls was established in 1907. By 1920 the college was transformed into the Aligarh Muslim University. 

Sir Syed breathed his last on March 27, 1898 and was buried in the premises of the university mosque in the Sir Syed Hall, AMU.
