It was the thoughtful initiative that gave birth to a greatest educational movement in India viz., “AL-AMEEN MOVEMENT” which was started in the year 1966 at Bangalore in the form of Al-Ameen Educational Society and later spread thought out India and abroad by Baba-E-Taleem Dr. Mumtaz Ahmed Khan Saheb, an activist, a Visionary and a Reformer.
It was discussed that Muslims were backward educationally and an educational institution should be started to redress the defect. Dr. Sab’s idea was encouraged by his family and known personalities namely, Mr. Justice Basheer Ahmed Sayeed of Madras and Prof. Mohammed Sayeed, the principal of Jamal Mohammed College, Tiruchirappalli and Dr. K. Hussain who suggested the name of the movement as “Al-Ameen “, (The Trust- Worthy). The immediate step he took was to start Al-Ameen Arts, Science and Commerce College at Bangalore.
