|Sir Syed Ahmed Khan
Although Sir Syed is one of the most efficient multi dimensional and versatile figures of our recent history but the ultimate aim of his life was education for all (teach the man what he knows not). He was indeed the prophet of education. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Aligarh movement is all about making modern education accessible to the downtrodden, marginalised and the backwards. It indeed aimed at educating those who were suspicious and scared of modern education.
