AMU at a Glance

The following article was written by Prof. Ashraf Khan (President AAANE 2002-04) for Sir Syed Day Mushaira 2004.

Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, one of the architects of modern India was born on October 17, 1817 in Delhi. Sir Syed created an institution which, first as M.A.O. College and then since 1920 as Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), became the source of an amazing range of talent in all fields of life. In one of his lecture Sir Syed stated: “The main reason behind the establishment of this institution, as I am sure all of you know, was the wretched dependence of Muslims, which had been debasing the position day after day.
