According to Mr. Bashir Ahmad Khan Rafiq, former Imam of London Mosque, Almanar, the college Magazine was started in 1950, I believe, under the supervision of Prof. Chaudhry Mohammad Ali (English section) and Prof. Sheikh Mahboob Alam Khalid (Urdu section). Mr. Bashir Rafiq writes
“Talim ul Islam College inaugurated its College Magazine ‘Al Minar’ in April 1950. It had both English and Urdu sections and soon it began to contain high quality articles. Since the get up was good and it was printed on art paper it gained immediate fame. As a result, it surpassed other college magazines that had been in existence for many years and had, already gained considerable recognition It was my good fortune that, from the very first year, I was appointed the Assistant Editor of the Urdu section. Two years later, I became its Editor. Many of my articles were published in it. One of them concerned the life and poetic works of Khushal Khan Khattak, which was liked by many and that proved to be the beginning of my literary life. After that, by the grace of Allah, very many of my articles were published in the ‘Al Fazl’ and other organs of the Jamaat. Alhamdolillah!
