It is more than a century when Sir Syed founded the Aligarh School to disseminate modern education among Muslims in India. Education was the goal to be achieved in the beginning but later by the turn of the century it imbibed the ideals of Nationalism and spearheaded the national movement along with Mahatma Gandhi and other nationalists. This continued till 1937 and when the Congress ministries in some of the provinces mal-treated the Muslims, a section of the Aligarh School alienated from the Congress and supported the Pakistan Movement. After the Great Divide that section obviously left for Pakistan. The pro-Congress section of the school continued its allegiance to the Congress and fought for the independence. The book reveals how after the independence the School maintained the secular rations of India while keeping its own identity.
