Department of Persian

This department has been working since the inception of the college (1926) and first Persian class started on 2nd July 1926 under the headship of Allama Reza Ali Wahshat. It has a glorious past and present. It has produced a number of eminent scholars, teachers and professors whose works have been acknowledged in the arena of arts, culture and education. Some eminent Persian scholars and teachers of this department such as Allama Reza Ali Wahshat, Abbas Ali Khan Bekhud, Haren Chandrapal, Mujibur Rahman, Dr. Abdus Subhan, Dr. Mansoor Alam and Dr. Ghulam Sarwar have rendered their invaluable services in this regard. It has a credit of producing many WBCS officers who have taken Persian as one of the subjects in the West Bengal Civil Service examination. Many of them have brought name and fame to their alma mater by their administrative calibre such as Ain Rashid Khan, Samiduddin, Zahidur Rahman, M. A. Saeed, Nasiruddin, Jawed Iqbal and many others.

This Dept. was established to provide the students the knowledge of Persian to get a berth in Govt. Services. Though the British had declared English as Official Language, yet the importance of Persian was effective in courts and other Govt. offices where the translators were required for interpretation work.

Many students were absorbed in the Govt. as well as MNCs and Corporate Offices and still the process is going on.

The department has always engaged its students by conducting several cultural and literary events to bring out the inner capability of Writing and speaking English fluently besides Persian. Moreover the department has been arranging an extension lecture every year on Persian language and literature which adds to students' knowledge about the concerned topic.
