Jamia Millia Islamia, an institution originally established at Aligarh in United Provinces, India in 1920 through the tireless efforts of its founders such as, Shaikhul Hind Maulana, Mahmud Hasan, Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar, Hakim Ajmal Khan, Dr. Mukhtar Ahmad Ansari, Jenab Abdul Majeed Khwaja and Dr. Zakir Husain. It became a Central University by an act of the Indian Parliament in 1988. In Arabic language, Jamia means 'University', and Millia means 'Community'. On 22 November 1920, Hakim Ajmal Khan was elected the first chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia. Mohamed Ali Jauhar became Jamia’s first Vice Chancellor, as Allama Iqbal could not accept the offer made through Gandhiji.
