Releasing the book, Bhatt said Sir Syed was a “shining jewel” who had made tremendous contribution to the society and education.

His daughter and actress-producer Pooja Bhatt said Sir Syed’s Aligarh movement “was designed to build self-confidence among Muslims and lead the community towards a more progressive future”.

Sir Syed Ahmed Khan (Oct 17, 1817 – March 27, 1898) was a teacher, politician and social reformer. He founded the Muhammadan Anglo Oriental school in Aligarh May 24, 1875 that later became Aligarh Muslim University.
