MAULANA MAZHARUL HAQUE born in a privileged family was sent to England to study law. When he finished his law degree he came back to practice law in India. His Profession gave him the opportunity to understand the overwhelming problem facing the Indian public under British Rule. This drew him closer to Mahatma Gandhi and he joined the freedom struggle to make Indian independent nation. He was a legal luminary, a statesman, an educationalist, a journalist, a poet and a philosopher combined in one. A staunch nationalist and a firm believer in secular foundations of this country he believed that "whether we are Hindus or Mussalmans we are in the same boat. We must sail or sink together."
Prof. Syed Jalil Ahmed assumed the charge
