First Unani College in Kerala

Calicut: Jamia Markaz Al Saqafatus Sunnia’s 37th 4-day International Conference was held here from 18 to 21 December. On the second day of this Conference Unani Medical College, first of its kind in Kerala, was jointly inaugurated in Markaz Knowledge City, situated in the coastal area by the Head of Markaz Sheikh Abu Bakar and Kerala’s health minister V. S. Shiv Kumar. Speaking on this occasion Shaikh Abu Bakar said that his dream is that children / students of minority community should not have to face any difficulty in acquisition of higher academic and professional education. With this objective in mind we have decided to set up institutions of higher academic and professional education and setting up the Unani Medical College is an important step in this series. This first and unique College in Kerala will be very useful not only for the children / students of Kerala but for those of other regions also. In addition to this College, we have plans for setting up Engineering College, College of Law, Business School, International School, Multi-Speciality Hospital, IT Park, Markaz Institute of School, Global School, Cyber Zone, Hotel and Convention Centre and Hostels for students in this Knowledge City, work on most of which has already started and in some cases work is in the final stage.
