Sir Syed Ahmad Khan: Vision and Mission

Sir Syed Ahmad Khan: Vision and Mission

By- Shahabuddin Iraqi (ed.)

This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the International Seminar on Sir Syed Ahmad Khan: Vision and Mission held under the auspices of CAS, Department of History, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh.

Since MAO College was the first modern institution of its kind in the Islamic world, its
historic importance was realized more and more with the passage of time. The essays focus not only on the importance of the Aligarh Movement and the evolution of MAO College as its centre but also on the relevance of Sir Syed’s concern for challenges faced by the Muslims in particular and the people of the country in general.

The contributors represent different disciplines who have applied interdisciplinary approach in presenting their viewpoint. Each essay is an accademic tribute to Sir Syed and his mission and sheds fresh light on his vision and missionary zeal.

Centre of Advanced Study (History), Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh. He has been
engaged for a long time in exploring and procuring source material in Hindi for the history of medieval India, and has published a number of articles on the subject in reputed journals.
