ABOUT AKAL GROUP OF INSTITUTIONS
Akal Group of Institutions, Mastuana Sahib, Sangrur, Punjab is working to propagate the ideals of the religious and social reformer, a great visionary Sant Attar Singh. He was a pioneer of education in Punjab whose mission was to provide education free from social and religious barriers. His advocacy of education for the girl-child, and blending education with spirituality show his sense of foresightedness. Even a century back, he knew that mere scientific education would only lead to destruction, and education of the girl-child would result in the whole family getting educated.
Towards that end, he first set up a school for girls in 1906. He did that even before establishing a school for boys and Akal College of Education Gursagar Mastuana Sahib (Sangrur), Punjab. Eventually he established a chain of schools and colleges. He also took part in several educational conferences motivating others to establish many more schools and colleges.
Such was his goodwill and popularity as a messenger of Universal Brotherhood and Oneness that he was personally invited by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya to lay the foundation stone of the Banaras Hindu University on 24 December 1914.
