Jamia Hamdard (JH) was declared as a deemed-to-be University in 1989 by the HRD Ministry on the recommendation of University Grants Commission (UGC) under the UGC Act 1956 in recognition of the services provided by erstwhile educational institutes established by HNF, the Hamdard National Foundation. These institutes built over a period of time included the Hamdard College of Pharmacy, Hamdard Tibbi College, Rufaida College of Nursing, the Institute of History of Medicine & Medical Research, and Indian Institute of Islamic Studies.
The University was inaugurated by the then Prime Minister of India, Shri Rajiv Gandhi on August 1, 1989, who in his inspiring inaugural address applauded the efforts of Hakeem Abdul Hameed sb, the Founder, for setting up a number of institutions of learning which finally emerged in the form of Jamia Hamdard to, in the words of Shri Rajiv Gandhi, “… enable minority (the Muslim) to go forward and help them to march forward”.
