*The Muslim Educational Society, Kerala’s most prestigious and renowned educational Organisation had its inception in the year 1964 . Basically evolved as a charitable institution mainly to grant scholarships and educational aids to the poor and the needy, this organization gradually spread its activities to bring about a remarkable transformation in the educational status of the backward classes of people, especially the Muslim community. The formation of the muslim Educational Society was a socially committed and timely venture of a small group of Muslim intellectuals led by the great Neurologist of the yester years , Dr. P.K. Abdul Ghafoor, the Founder President of the Muslim Educational Society, who had dedicated his entire life for an educational revolution in the country and pledged to keep the lamp of knowledge aloft to illuminate the life of a society which was till then a neglected class and deprived of avenues for even acquiring primary education.
And thus emerged in the year 1964 this great organization, when the Muslim Educational Society was registered under the Charitable Societies Registration Act 1860 (Central Act XXI of 1860) under Regn. No. 54/1964. The Registered office of the MES (Regd) Calicut is at Bank Road, Calicut. The predominant Aims and objectives of the Society as laid down in the Bye-laws are to render committed service for the Educational,, Social, Cultural and Economic advancement of the poor and the backward communities of the country in all possible ways. The late Dr. Abdul Ghafoor the founder President could achieve a tremendous success in establishing a large number of academic institutions under the banner of the MES and make MES the largest organization in the Country that distributes scholarships to the poor students .But starting a Medical College which was his life’s greatest mission remained as his unfulfilled dream .
This long-cherished dream of the Founder President was however further carried forward to the next generation that emerged in the leadership of MES and they strived to fulfill this ambitious dream. This motivation, the beloved founder of the Muslim Educational Society late Dr. P.K.Abdul Ghafoor instilled in them was the pivotal force that emboldened the MES to take up the great challenge of setting up a Medical College in Malappuram District under the self-financing sector with an outlook to mould medical professionals by imparting quality medical education with the objective of improving the health care status of the Society.
In the year 2003, the MES Medical college and Hospital became a reality and then followed a series of Medical institutions namely MES Dental college, MES College of Nursing, MES School of Nursing and MES Institute of Para medical Sciences all under the banner of “ MES ACADEMY OF MEDICAL SCEINCES, PERINTALMANNA” , situated in the lush greenery of 60 acres of land spread over in Malaparamba in Perintalmanna.
