Zakir Husain Delhi College (Evening) has always stood steadfast as a champion of some basic values which have acquiredgreater relevance in contemporary times. The college in its long history has accommodated students and faculty of different communities. Gradually it has evolved a culture of understanding and respect for difference of caste, creed and religion.

On entering the college every year new students from the “walled city”, from across the river, as also from the South and North of Delhi and other parts of the country, walk into an ambience of composite bearing and harmony. Education for us in this college is not a mere pursuit for information.

The College History

The origin of the Zakir Husain Delhi College (Evening) can be traced to the closing years of the 17th Century

with the founding of a Madrasa by Ghaziuddin Khan, one of the Emperor Aurangzeb’s leading Deccan commanders and the father of the first Nizam of Hyderabad. The complex containing his tomb, a mosque and a Madrasa, can be visited today outside the Ajmeri Gate near the Dargah of the 13th century Sufi, Hazrat Hafiz Sadullah.
