Past few decades have witnessed a significant transformation in the educational status of Kerala Muslims, who were educationally most backward. The Muslim Educational Society is one of the main architects of such transformation.
The movement was started by a group of socially conscious people, headed by the late Dr. P.K. Abdul Ghafoor Sahib in 1964 at Calicut. Well-known professionals, intellectuals, educationists and businessmen whole-heartedly supported the venture. The society has been promoting a large number of educational projects and programs from primary schools to professional colleges. In a short span of time, its activities spread to almost every district in Kerala and a large number of MES educational institutions were started. Today the Society runs more than 150 institutions including more than 50 Schools, a number of Post Graduate Colleges, Women's Colleges, Professional institutions like MES College of Engineering and MES School of Architecture, MES Institute of Technology & Management, MES Medical College, Nursing College and Dental College. This year, 2011 AICTE has approved MES College of Engineering & Technology, Kunnukara. The Society proposes to start a new Engineering College in Kozhikode during 2012-2013. In addition to the Institutions in the Statesof Kerala and Tamil Nadu, MES Institutions were established in the West Asian countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Muscat.
