Madaripur Government College (formerly Government Nazimuddin College) is a government graduate college at Madaripur District in Bangladesh. The college was established in 1948.[1][2] Following the demand of the people of Madaripur, the name of the college was changed from Government Nazimuddin College to Madaripur Government College with the help of former Shipping and Transport Minister Shahjahan Khan and with the consent of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.[3][4]

History

The present Madaripur Government College started its journey as a private college on 16 September 1948 with the first year class activities of Higher Secondary. The college was governmentized in 1989. It was initiated by some local dignitaries. In the year 1938 Sher-e-Bangla A.K. Fazlul Haque came to Madaripur during the election campaign. It was then that the first demand from the local leaders was to set up a college in Madaripur. Later, A.K. Fazlul Haque came to Madaripur as the Chief Minister in 1941 to inaugurate an exhibition of art, culture and agriculture. He assured all possible help and cooperation when the demand for re-establishment of the college was raised at the event. Then in 1948 Hussain Shaheed Suhrawardy came to a public meeting in Madaripur. He voted in favor of the establishment of the college and advised the administration to establish the college by raising funds. Under his direction, the then SDO WB Qadri took a leading role in raising funds for the establishment of the college. At that time there was a slight difference of opinion among the locals about the naming of the college. Congress supporters want the name of the college to be Madaripur College; Muslim League supporters want the name Islamia College; And the local business class thinks that Charmuguria Merchants College should be named. Finally, at the request of Mr. Yusuf Ali Chowdhury (aka Mohan Mia), a prominent politician of Faridpur, the college was renamed as Nazimuddin College after the then Prime Minister of Pakistan Khwaja Nazimuddin. Those who contributed to the establishment of this college are the then MLA Mr. Eskander Ali Khan, former MLA Mr. Abul Fazal, Mr. Mominuddin Ahmed, Mr. Daliluddin Ahmed, Mr. Alim Uddin Ahmed, Mr. Abdul Hamid Sikder, Mr. Achmat Ali. Khan, Mr. Mir Abdul Majid, Mr. Syed Uddin Ahmed, Mr. Abdur Rahman Hawladar and many more. It may be mentioned that in 1950, Madaripur High School and Islamia High School were merged to form the present United Islamia Madaripur High School. Two years after its establishment, in 1950, bachelor degree and in 1997 honors and post-graduate courses were introduced in this college. At present, 13 subjects are taught in Honors level and Arts, Science and Commerce are taught in Higher Secondary level. The number of students is about 6,000. Later in 2019 the name of the college was changed to Madaripur Government College.[4]
