Muslim Ladies’ College, Colombo – 4.

Muslim Ladies College is one of leading girl’s schools in Sri Lanka. It has hostel facility to get the advantage of getting education for Muslim girls all over the Island. It is said that MLC was started before 2nd world war with 13 pupils and at the war time it was suspended, after the war school restarted again.

How MLC established…

Here I have entered certain version expressed by Muslim Ladies’ College 1st principal Mrs. Aysha Rauf, which is collected from the book named – “This Man Razik”

“ At a time when Ceylon Moor Ladies’ Union was struggling to find ways and means to start a school for Muslim girls it was Sir Razik Fareed who came to their rescue by placing at their disposal half an acre of land with four blocks of temporary buildings – premises provided with all facilities, water, drainage and lights and all mind you free of rent, in fact the good and worthy cause – Education of Muslim girls in the name of their long lost only child Hajara…………….

Thus the Muslim Ladies’ College is a pet theory put into practice by Sir Razik (then Mr. A. R. A. Razik).”

The school celebrated its 62nd anniversary on 1.11.2008.
