History[edit]

Bab-e-syed, the gateway to AMU

Founding[edit] It was established as Madrasatul Uloom Musalmanan-e-Hind in 1875.[5] The college started on 24 May 1875.[6] The Anglo–Indian statesman Syed Ahmad Khan
Syed Ahmad Khan
founded the predecessor of AMU, the Muhammadan Anglo Oriental College, in 1875 having already established two schools.[7] The movement of Muslim
Muslim
awakening associated with Syed Ahmad Khan
Syed Ahmad Khan
and M.A.O. College came to be known as Aligarh
Aligarh
Movement.[8] He considered competence in English and "Western sciences" necessary skills for maintaining Muslims' political influence, especially in Northern India. Khan's image for the college was based on his visit to Oxford and Cambridge and he wanted to establish an education system similar to the British model.[9] A committee was formed by the name of foundation of Muslim
Muslim
College and asked people to fund generously. The, then, Viceroy and Governor General of India
India
Lord Northbrook gave a donation of Rs 10000 and the Lt. Governor of the North Western Provinces contributed Rs 1000 and by March 1874 the fund for the college stood at Rs 153492 and 8 anas.[6] His Highness Sri Maharao Raja Mahamdar Singh Mahamder Bahadur, G.C.S.I., the late Maharaja of Patiala contributed Rs.58,000. His Highness the Maharaja of Vizianagaram, K.C.S.I also donated.[10] Shambhu Narayan, Raja of Benaras donated Rs 60.[11] In the beginning, the college was affiliated with the University of Calcutta for the matriculate examination but became an affiliate of Allahabad University
Allahabad University
in 1885. In 1877, the school was raised to college level and Lord Lytton laid the foundation stone of the college building.[6] Transformation into university[edit] Around 1900 A.D. efforts began to make the college its own university. The Aligarh
Aligarh
Muslim
Muslim
University Act of 1920 made it a central university.[9] HH Sir Mohammad Ali Mohammad Khan and the Aga Khan III also played a major role in realising the idea of Syed Ahmed Khan by collecting funds for building the Aligarh
Aligarh
Muslim
Muslim
University[12] In 1927, a school for the blind was established and, the following year, a medical school was attached to the university. By the end of the 1930s, the university had developed an Engineering faculty. Syed Zafarul Hasan, joined the Aligarh

Before 1939, faculty members and students supported an all-India nationalist movement. After 1939, political sentiment shifted toward support for a Muslim
Muslim
separatist movement. Students and faculty mobilised behind Muhammad Ali Jinnah

and the university became a center of Pakistan Movement.[13][14] Women's education[edit] Main article: Women's College, Aligarh
Aligarh
Muslim
Muslim
University Women's education started at the university with the establishment of the Girls School on 19 October 1906. The All India
India
Muhammadan Educational Conference had started a movement to establish girls education from 1896 onward. The school became intermediate college in 1929 and on 1930 it was made a constituent college of the university and the name was changed to Women's College. Since then it caters to the female undergraduate students of the university.[15] In late 2014 the university's vice-chancellor Zameer Uddin Shah
Zameer Uddin Shah
turned down a demand by female students of the college to be allowed to use the Maulana Azad
Maulana Azad
Library, which was male-only. Shah stated that the issue was not one of discipline, but of space as if girls were allowed in the library there would be "four times more boys," putting a strain on the library's capacity.[16][17][18] Although there was a separate library for the university's Women's College, it was not as well-stocked as the Maulana Azad
Maulana Azad
Library.[16] National human resource and development minister Smriti Irani
Smriti Irani
decried Shah's defense as "an insult to daughters."[17] Responding to a petition filed by a Human Rights Law Network
Human Rights Law Network
intern, the Allahabad High Court
Allahabad High Court
ruled in November 2014 that the university's ban on female students from using the main library was unconstitutional, and that accommodations must be made to facilitate student use regardless of gender.[18][19] The High Court gave the university until 24 November 2014 to comply.[19] Minority status[edit] Aligarh
