Zakir Hussain College - ZHC

Zakir Hussain College (ZHC), proffers courses in Arts, Science and Commerce such as BA in History, M.Sc. in Chemistry, B. A. (Hons.) in twelve subjects viz. Arabic, Bengali, Economics, English, Hindi, History, Persian, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Sanskrit & Urdu, B.Com, etc.. The origin of the Zakir Husain Delhi College 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. The upheavals that weakened the Mughal empire during the 18th century, resulted in the closure of the Madrasa in the early 1790's, but, with the support of the wealthy citizens of Delhi, an oriental college for literature, science and art, was established at the site in 1792. Instruction was provided in prose, literature, rhetoric, logic, philosophy, jurisprudence, astrology and medicine. Instruction was imparted chiefly in Persian and Arabic, and there was also a Sanskrit department. Currently, the significant feature of the library is its multi-media section. It is well equipped with multi-media computers and a vast collection of electronic materials for e-learning. The College has the largest Book Bank in Delhi University which renders service to students by providing them with textbooks for the whole academic session.
