The Konkan Muslim Education Society, the apex body of the college.
        A few enlightened visionaries established, the Konkan Muslim Education Society in 1927 to fulfill their desire of providing quality education to children, especially in a mofussal and backward area like Bhiwandi, where the rate of illiteracy was very high and was dominated by the Power-loom workers, who lived a hand to mouth existence and could not afford to send their children to school.
