The British Government had allowed various sects of Christian Missionaries to establish schools in India and to preach Christianity. To counteract the moves of Christian Missionaries, Darul Uloom was established at Deoband in 1867.

Later, with the passage of time, this madrasa switch over to secular education. At present this school is a recognized and aided school.
