A short history on Baker Govt. hostel (1910-2019)

To find out a proper solution to the students' problem in terms of residence, the Muslim leaders of Calcutta assembled at the Historic Town Hall in 1910 and unanimously adopted a resolution that they should initiate the proposal of constructing a hostel building. Khwaja Sallimullah, the Nawab of Dacca, echoing the sentiments of Muslim donated a generous amount of Rs 30,000/- for the construction of hostel building.

Following the noble footsteps of Nawab Sahib, some of the elite present in the meeting, also contributed for the same. The govt. when approached agreed to bear the half of the expenditure and allocated necessary fund for the construction of the building.

Thus in 1910 a fascinated and two-storied building consisting of 185 rooms with lush green lawn came into existence. This hostel building was named after Sir Edward Norman Baker, Lieutenant Governor of Bengal. After the establishment of the Islamiah College (now Maulana Azad College) in 1926, the privilege of residence was extended to the students of Islamiah College coming from the mufussil and adjoining areas.

During the long span of 108 years from 1910 to 2018, the hostel has greatly contributed in molding the shape of nation in one way or other. This century old hostel is proud to have provided accommodation to innumerable students who have spread far and wide and contributed richly to all walks of life. Among them the illustrious names of Bangabandhu Sk. Mujibur Rahman, father of the nation of Bangladesh.
