9789354893315 619f593763cf1794aec1c6c7 Aligarh Muslim University The Making Of The Modern Indian Muslim https://cdn1.storehippo.com/s/607fe93d7eafcac1f2c73ea4/619f593963cf1794aec1c6e1/webp/51ozoxaskpl-_sx322_bo1-204-203-200_.jpg

The Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) completed a hundred years in December 2020. In December 1920, the Mohammedan Anglo Oriental (MAO) College founded by Sir Syed Ahmed Khan in 1877, was transformed into AMU. Sir Syed also established the All India Mohammedan Educational Conference to infuse the subcontinent's Muslims with a spirit of modernism. This helped prepare the community, devastated in the aftermath of the Revolt of 1857, for new challenges.

This book examines the critical role that the Aligarh Muslim University played in the making of the modern Indian Muslim. As Zakir Hussain, AMU alumnus, its former Vice-Chancellor and a former President of India, said over fifty years ago, 'The way Aligarh participates in various walks of national life will determine the place of Muslims in India's national life. The way India conducts itself towards Aligarh will determine largely, the form which our national life will acquire in the future.'
