In 1919 a group of intellectuals with a vision and zeal established Anjuman Hami-e-Muslimeen, a charitable education trust, aimed at imparting modern and religious education to the residents of Bhatkal and surrounding areas. This journey of hundreds of miles began with a single step, "Education is the highway that leads to a nation and community's progress and prosperity”. Their commitment and efforts more than a century ago have borne fruit and paid rich dividends to the town. In keeping with the needs of the time and the cultural and religious background of the community, Anjuman has set up sixteen institutions of modern learning over the period from its inception until now.
The Anjuman, which is based in Bhatkal, Karnataka, has an enrollment of over 7000 students including primary school, high school, undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.
