It is a chartered university and is recognized by the UGC / Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the Government of Pakistan. The Mohi-ud-Din Islamic University, Nerian Sharif, AJ&K is singular effort of the people of Pakistan and Azad Jammu & Kashmir. The establishment of this university encourages the educational planners to come forward for the promotion of the education not only for the local populace, but also for our future generations.
The idea of establishment of this university by Allama Pir Alla-ud-Din Siddiqui was in fact in commemoration of the memory of his late father, Sheikh Hazrat Khawaja Pir Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Ghazanvi, who was one of the great saints of his time and devoted his whole life to the cause of Islam by motivating the people of the far flung area of Trarkhal, AJ&K to mould their lives according to the tenets of Islam.
The Chancellor following in the footsteps of his illustrious father has devoted his life to further the cause of modern education in combination with the basic religious education. The raison de tre underlying this mission of his life is to recapture the glorious traditions of scholarship of our ancestors. This will provide an opportunity to the Pakistan youth to utilize their talent to attain brilliance and excellence in the modern techniques and skills to compete with the best in the world.
