The Founder;

MK Hajee has been inalienably associated with every humanitarian concern of the underprivileged sections of the society across Malabar especially of Tirurangadi till his death in1983. Being brought up as an orphan, he was aware of the sufferings and hardships of the destitute. Malabar Muslim Association has its genesis from his foresighted intellectual engagement with freedom struggle and the life of trials and tribulations he had in Madras.

The ideal of an orphanage which he founded as part of the humanistic and reform activities in collaboration with KM Moulvi, germinated from the establishment of Noorul Islam Madrasa. It is worth mentioning that he had the unique generosity to transform his own house into an orphanage in 1943, which later became Tirurangadi Muslim Orphanage. Thereafter, he founded a series of educational and charitable institutions at Tirurangadi. PSMO College is of the feeder organizations among a host of other institutions under the Orphanage Committee. MK Hajee, therefore, is a pioneer in the renaissance of Kerala Muslims by being an architect of the educational and cultural advancement in Kerala.
