The Muslim Educational Society (Regd.), Calicut,( MES ) was established in the year 1964 with the mission of bringing education achievable by the poor and the neglected segments of the society residing in erstwhile Malabar where the majority of people were peasants and labourers who could not afford to send their wards to High Schools and Colleges for higher education. The effort of the MES was a solemn movement launched to bring about a radical change to this pathetic situation. Now after 50 years of stellar service to the people of Kerala, MES has emerged into one of the biggest Educational organisation in India, running more than 150 educational institutions in India and abroad including Medical College, Dental College, Engineering Colleges, Nursing College, first grade PG Arts & Science Colleges, state-aided Higher Secondary schools, C.B.S.E. Schools and an array of job oriented institutions.
The year 2014 marks the 50th year of the formation of the Muslim Educational Society and a year-long Golden Jubilee Celebrations has been put into motion in a befitting manner across the state and abroad. The valedictory summit of the Golden Jubilee celebrations will be held from 22nd to 25th January 2015 at Kozhikode. Eminent personalities who have put an imprint in various fields in the national as well as the state arena are expected to take part in the valedictory ceremony. And above all a digitally developed audio-visual display of events of the byegone times duly documented in history in all its reality will be showcased during the ceremony for the public to view.
The golden jubilee mega valedictory ceremony will be spread over for 4 days and being organized at various different platforms in and around Kozhikode city, the major events of which include:
|1||PANORAMIC CULTURAL PARADES|
|2||NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEVEL CONFERENCENCES|
|8||GET -TOGETHER OF YOUTH AND LADIES’ WINGS|
|10||ARTS AND SPORTS MEETS|
This is the question that poses every one when MES celebrates the Golden Jubilee in 2014 and we at MES , with all modesty , say that MES has succeeded in steering through against many odds with the deepest conviction and concern for the uplift of the poor and the needy to bring education to their door steps during all these five decades. Golden Jubilee is only an occasion for us to have an introspection and to re-dedicate ourselves for the common people of our nation, and also to pledge ourselves to undertake loftier service for them.
The Muslim Educational Society’s commitment towards excellence in the establishment of educational institutions motivated them to take up the challenge of setting up a Medical College in Malappuram District. The college was established in 2003 with an annual intake is 100 students. A 500 bed hospital is attached to the college with all major Super specialties and all medical and surgical specialties encompassing the attendant physical facilities . Right from the setting up of this Teaching Hospital, we are providing treatment, diagnostic tests, medicines, surgery and similar services to the poor and the needy patients, free of cost. On an average, one lakh people per year from various walks of life have been benefited from these charity medical schemes. Last year, the Society has incurred an amount of Rs.9.25 Crs to meet these charity activities in this hospital alone.
In the year 2011, the MES Medical College has been elevated to a Post Graduate Medical Institute offering PG Degree and Diploma Courses in Anatomy, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Community Medicine, Microbiology, Pathology, General Medicine, General Surgery, Paediatrics, Orthopaedics. Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology, TB & Chest, Anaesthesiology and Radiology.
Right from the start of the MES Medical College, MES Medicos are securing excellent results in the MBBS examination thereby reflecting the exemplary standard of the academic coaching we provide here through eminent and distinguished faculty members . MES Medicos had bagged first Ranks in First & Final MBBS Examinations in 2009 & 2011, leaving far behind the ‘so called’ meritorious students in Government Medical Colleges in Calicut & Thrissur.
True, MES has made tremendous achievements during a short spell of its existence thanks to the sacrifices as well as the committed and devoted ‘sweat and toil ‘ of thousands of active grass root level members of this prestigious organization. But we still feel that “ we have miles to go before we sleep…” We carry on the mantle of our mission under the inspiring leadership of Dr.P.A.Fazal Ghafoor, President, MES, to vehemently continue the uplift of the backward segments of the people of our nation educationally, economically and socially so that these segments can also stand on their foot and take control of their due and worthy place in the mainstream of our great nation’s march forward to achieve and fulfill the great dream – any higher aspiration – : a society that looks both forward and onwards always as well as holds itself to corrective standards, for the betterment of the whole people of our nation to which the MES humbly pledges and re-dedicates itself at the eve of this most auspicious Golden Jubilee Celebrations .
