History[edit]

Mumtaz Ahmed Khan is the founder of Al-Ameen Educational Society.[4][5] At the age of 31, in 1966 Khan founded the Al-Ameen Movement. He had decided to name it The Bangalore Educational Society. He was advised against this by his friend Khader Hussein who suggested Al-Ameen Educational Society as a reference to the title given to Prophet Muhammad which meant The Trustworthy. Hussein later became the principle of Saboo Siddiq Polytechnic, Bombay. Abbasiya Begum, a female member of the Karnataka Legislative Council was elected the first chairperson of this society.

A number of social workers supported him for starting and establishing around 20 branches of Al-Ameen Educational Society and 200 institutions throughout India.
