Situated at the eastern strip of sprawling state of Uttar Pradesh and far from the hustle bustle of the present day cosmopolitan cities, Shibli National College with its long and cherished record of dedicated service to the cause of advancement of education in east U.P. has definitely carved out a niche for itself in the history of education in India.
Founded by the great and internationally acknowledged savant, Allama Shibli Nomani, as “National School” in 1883- even two years ahead of the birth of Indian National Congress when even the use of the word “National” was considered crime. The founder, Allama Shibli , was quite ahead of his time and has very aptly realized the need and value of modern education coupled with traditional and cultural ethos of muslims in India. National School from the modest beginning to its present stature has now fully blossomed into a radiating centre of higher education and learning, inspite of its muslim minority character. Shibli National College, Azamgarh, a muslim minority institution, is bubbling with a very strong feeling of “Nationalism” and therefore has its door open to all irrespective of caste, creed, religion, region and such other narrow and parochial considerations.
It is only due to the grace of Almighty ALLAH and the concerted efforts of successive principals and the staff vis-a-vis the patronage of the management. The College has been successful in achieving the hopes and aspirations of its great founder. The College aims at achieving large hearted tolerance, fraternity and brotherhood and concord among various communities, inculcating scientific temper and free thinking, and thereby shaping and moulding the students to become ideal citizens of the country. Shibli National College, Azamgarh is thus – Allama’s dream come true.
