The President, M. Badruddin Ajmal

It is difficult to describe the multi-faced personality of Maulana Badruddin Ajmal; he is a successful businessman, a famous politician and a great philanthropist. He has been equally successful in his political, social and business life.

Maulana Ajmal was a businessman at the beginning of his life. He was born in a very affluent business family. Ajmal has been able to enjoy the affluence and luxury of life. But the luxury and wealth could not keep him within the boundary of his family or business life. Soon the sorrows and sufferings of the people around him led him to the path of the service to the humanity. He joined the business of his family after taking post graduation in 'Islamic Theology and Arabic Literature' from the Darul Uloom Deoband. His family has a long tradition of helping the poor and the needy. This tradition attracted him and soon he began his social service as a philanthropist. He established the N.G.O., 'Markazul Ma-Arif' at his birth-place Hojai in 1983 and formally dedicated himself to the service of the humanity. Markazul Ma-Arif is now one of the biggest and most famous NGOs in Assam. Later on AJMAL family established 'AJMAL FOUNDATION' which has been providing help to the poor and the needy not only in the North-Eastern states, but in some other states of India also. As on today this organisation has been recognised as one of the best charitable organisation by the Government as well as the people of the North-East India.

Maulana Badruddin Ajmal has been a student of the Darul Uloom Deoband which is recognised all over the world as the centre of the nationalist religious organisation, Jamiat Ulama-E-Hind. He came into close contact with this organisation in his student life and his association with Jamiat continued even when he completed his study at Deoband. In 2002 he was entrusted with the responsibility of the presidentship of the Assam State Jamiat. Maulana Ajmal was also entrusted with the responsibility of the forming a political party by the Jamiat to fight for the causes of the downtrodden communities of Assam. In case of Manmohan Sing it has been said that he became the Prime Minister of India 'accidentally'. The same can be said in case of Badruddin Ajmal also. He also had to join politics all of a sudden. He never dreamt to be a political leader. But in 2005, the AIUDF was to be formed in a crucial moment by the marginalised communities of Assam and he was entrusted with the duty of leading the party.

Badruddin Ajmal was born in a village named Alinagar, Hojai on 12th February, 1950. He is the third son of Haji Ajmal Ali and Moriumnessa. He started his primary education in Assamese medium in Hojai. Then he went to Mumbai and studied in an English medium school there. After passing class eight standard from that school, he joined Darul Uloom Deoband and completed his education from that institution.

Unlike other politicians, politics is not his profession, yet Ajmal has been very successful in the field of politics. AIUDF had been able to won 10 seats in the Assam Legislative Assembly Election of 2006, six months after the formation of the Party. The able and efficient leadership of Badruddin Ajmal was one of the reasons for this great success. In the Assembly Election of 2011, his party was able to win 18 Assembly seats. According to some of the political observers, AIUDF will be able to win more seats this time (2016) than in the Assembly Election of 2011.According to a survey by the 'Outlook' in 2013 Badruddin Ajmal has been the most influential person of Assam for his continuous success in the political field.

This famous politician has also been included in the list of the hundred most influential Indians by the 'The Indian Express' in February, this year. In October, 2015, 'Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre', an internationally famous organisation, has recognised Maulana Ajmal as one of the five hundred most influential Muslims of the world. The report of the organisation says, “Maulana Badruddin Ajmal Quasmi is a prominent businessman in India who runs the Ajmal Group of Companies that sells attar perfume, oils, and textiles. He is a proponent and member of various social service organizations and is also a scholar of Islam, having studied at the Darul Uloom Deoband. Qasmi is also a politician who founded the Assam United Democratic Front, a political party. He is noted for his contributions to charitable hospitals, orphanages, and educational institutions, including a women's science college.”
