History

Late M.N. Ahmad Ghani, a noted philanthropist established the A.G. M. Trust in the year 1971 in the fond memory of his father Late Maulvi Mohammad Abdul Ghani, ex-member of the Central Assembly, whose dream was emancipation of the downtrodden and underprivileged masses and who firmly believed that education alone was the most appropriate and effective means for completing this gargantuan task. The fervor and intensity of his dedication would be well demonstrated from the fact that initially the trust started functioning from his own house and subsequently, the Z.A. Islamia College was founded under his able guidance and leadership.

Z. A. Islamia College , which started functioning as an affiliated college under the erstwhile Bihar University attained incredible heights towards fulfillment of dreams of its founding father. In no time, the college became an important centre of learning for the people belonging to the region around Siwan, which predominantly comprised of uneducated and underprivileged masses. The basic aim of this institution was development of the human resource of the region, which was economically backward and geographically isolated. One of the important aims and objectives of this College was also spread of education amongst the minority communities. But suddenly, as a bolt from the blue the founding father of the institution left for his heavenly abode in 1998 leaving the College amidst insuperable grief and mourning. In these difficult times, Mr. Zafar Ahmad Ghani, son of Late M.N. Ahmad Ghani accepted the challenge of fate and assumed the responsibilities of the administration and management of the College by accepting the office of the Secretary of the College.

In furtherance of the dreams of his deceased father, Mr. Zafar Ahmad Ghani did not leave a single stone unturned towards achieving the objects and goals of development of the region in and around Siwan, which despite having a rich cultural heritage and natural resources with fertile stretches of lands, lags far behind the rest of the country mainly due to poverty and lack of skilled and educated persons which is indispensable for optimum utilization of the available resources. In order to curtail these evils and as an endeavour towards achieving the goal of adequately equipping the human resources of this region to overcome these shortcomings, the College has made earnest endeavours in exploiting all its resources with the aid and support of a dedicated team of 85 qualified teachers who are committed to contribute towards fulfillment of these goals.
