A Brief History of AMU Students Union
Sir Sayed, in 1884, established a debating club, on the pattern of Cambridge University. Known as the “College Union Club”, then became famous as “Sidon’s Union Club”, as its first President was Henry George Sidon’s.
First Vice President of Sidon Club in1918 was Dr Zakir Husain, who later became Vice chancellor of AMU .Aligarh and then President of India.First president of AMU.Students Union in 1920-21 was K.M Khuda bux.
The first Vice President was a student named Sajjad Husain. The first Hony. Secy. was Sayed Md Ali with 10 cabinet members of the Union. The main objectives of the Union Club were to produce good orators and wise leaders. From 1902 on wards, it also started having an honorary librarian; Nawab Ali was the first librarian. On 22 February 1905, Morison laid the foundation of “Sidon’s Union Debating Hall”.
In 1920, when it got the status of university with massive political mobilization (1898-1920), it came to be known as “Muslim University Union”, and its first Vice President was Sayed Nurullah, (who later on became the Pro Vice Chancellor of AMU, has co-authored a book on history of education).
The President used to be the Vice Chancellor. In 1952-53, it came to have a new constitution for itself and was probably the only Students’ Union in the world to have got a formal registration. Then it came to be known as “Muslim University Students’ Union”. And the Vice Chancellor became “Patron”, rather than the President of the Union.
In 1953-54, for the first time, a girl was elected as a cabinet member of the Union. She was Ms Zahra Naqvi, M.Sc. Physics, final year. Then, even the western countries did not have women franchise.Mahatma Gandhi was the first life member of the union and was conferred upon him on 1920.

सयैद के चमन के बुलबुलों को मेरा प्यार भरा नमस्कार!! अस्सलाम वालेकुम !!
मेरी तरफ से इस वर्ष चुने गए एएमयू छात्रसं के नवनिर्वाचित पदाधिकारियों और कैबिनेट सदस्यों को हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं ,जिन्होंने दिन रात की मेहनत के बाद इस सफलता को प्राप्त किया है।
अलीग बिरादरी ने इस भरोसे के साथ आपको अपना नेता चुना है कि आप अब उनके हक़ की बात करेंगे, कि लीबिया , सीरिया, फलस्तीन पर अटक कर रह जाएंगे।
आप हमेशा उनके हक़ के लिए लड़ेंगे कि अपने व्यक्तिगत स्वार्थ के लिए।
आप उनके बीच मे रहकर राजनीति करेंगे कि राजनीतिक पार्टीयों के बीच जाकर नेतागिरी करेंगे।।
आप हर उस शख्स के साथ खड़े होंगे जो अलीग बिरादरी से सम्बन्ध रखता है कि सिर्फ अपनी लॉबी वालों के साथ देंगे।
आपको हर समुदाय के लोगों ने चुना है तो हर समुदाय के लोगों के हक़ की बात करेंगे, कि महज एक समुदाय की बात करेंगे।
आप प्रशासन से हर मसले पर बात करने के लिए आगे रहेंगे, कि प्रशासन से मिलकर उसके मोहरा बनेंगे।
आप हमेशा ज़मीन से जुड़ कर छात्रों की ज़मीनी हकीकत को समझेंगे कि यूनियन में आने के बाद आसमान में उड़ना शुरू कर देंगे।
आप हॉल टू हॉल जाकर हर हफ्ते छात्रों से रूबरू होंगे कि यूनियन हॉल में बैठ कर मुलाकात करने के लिए छात्रों से इंतज़ार करवाएंगे।
आप हर उस वादे को निभाने की कोशिश करोगे जिन को आपने अपने मेनिफेस्टो में शामिल करवाया था।
अगर आप जरा सा भी छात्रों के भरोसे को कायम रखने में सफल हुए तो आप यूनियन खत्म होने के बाद भी हमेशा छात्रों के नेता बने रहोगे, वरना यूनियन हॉल से निकलने के बाद कब आपको अपनी बाइक चलवाने तक के लिए एक व्यक्ति का ढूढ़ना पड़ जाएगा, आपको पता भी नही चलेगा।
उम्मीद करता हूं अब तक चुने गए नेताओ की राह पर चलकर खुद की राह बनाओगे और इस अलीग बिरादरी के भरोसे पर खरा उतर कर एक मिसाल कायम करोगे।
सोनवीर सिंह, प्रत्याशी उपाध्यक्ष पद,
