The management committee of the society was formed with Prince Mahomed Ruheemoddin of Mysore as President, and Prince Mirza Jahan Kader Bahadur of Oudh and Prince Mahomed Nusseroddin Hyder of Mysore as Vice-Presidents. The Lieutenant Governor of Bengal was made the Patron of the Society. The first meeting of the Mohammedan Literary Society was held at 16 Taltala under the chairmanship of Maulvi Md Wazir.

It also played an important role for Muslim Unity. Spreading higher education among the Muslims and proper utilization of the Mohsin Endowment Fund for Muslim education were noteworthy achievements of the Society . Through his tireless efforts, Nawab Abdul Lutif made the Mohammedan Literary Society a powerful forum for the social, cultural and intellectual progress of Muslims. It survived as the most important nerve centre of the Muslims of Bengal down to 1930 under the name of the Muslim Institute of Calcutta. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
