The Muslims in Kerala, especially those in Malabar, have a poignant story to tell about their ancestors. Traditionally they were traders and agrarians living in villages and were never allowed to enter into the main stream of the social fabric of Kerala because of their backwardness. Educating a Muslim boy or girl was something beyond the means of the poor Muslim parents and they felt that they had no right to acquire education because it was confined to the elite class only. Because of this stratum prevailing among the Muslims, the community remained in the dark cells of ignorance and deprivation. Added to this spectrum was the fact that Muslim girls and women were not even dare enough to come out of their shells for fear that they would face ridicule from the other communities who were better educated and living a better life. Poverty was the destiny of these poor Muslims and they had to remain content with whatever meager income they got from their avocations in trade and agriculture. Nobody was there to give leadership to organize them and campaign for their legitimate rights. This pathetic plight continued for decades…. After independence, the situation started changing, though in a slow pace. Some visionaries in the community started acquiring higher education and in their minds dawned the idea of doing something worthwhile for improving this poignant status of their counterparts. A need for starting an organization to fight for their cause gradually gathered ground and there emerged the great organization called THE MUSLIM EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY.
The movement was started by a group of socially conscious and well-known professionals, intellectuals, educationists and businessmen. The society has been promoting a large number of educational projects and programs from primary schools to professional colleges. In a short span of time, its activities spread to almost every district in Kerala and a large number of MES educational institutions were started. Today the Society runs more than 150 institutions including more than 50 Schools, a number of Post Graduate Colleges, Women's Colleges, Professional institutions like Engineering Colleges, Medical College, Nursing College and Dental College.
In addition to the institutions in the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, MES had established institutions in the West Asian countries like Saudi -Arabia, U.A.E, Qatar and Muscat.
