Sir Syed College, Thaliparamba

Sir Syed College is situated in the Taliparamba Municipality of Kannur District of Kerala State.

Established in 1967 the institution was the culmination of a search by a socially committed team for a goal, not thought to be easily achievable in the region, the search for a center of higher education and a solution to the educational backwardness of an area and of a community that was officially classified educationally backward.

The idea took the embryonic form in 1966, when the then minister for education late Janab C.H.Muhammed Koya officially announced the Government’s decision to sanction a College under the Cannanore District Muslim Educational Association (CDMEA) from the academic year 1967 onwards.

The college was formally inaugurated by the then Chief Minister late E.M.S.Namboodiripad at a function presided over by Janab C.H.Mohammed Koya.

The institution was appropriately named after the great Muslim socio-educational reformer Sir Syed Ahamed Khan, symbolizing the revival of modern learning targeted through the institution – a cause dear to, and religiously pursued by the eventual founder of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).
