Maulana Mohammad Ali College was established in 1957 by Maulana Abdul Hamid Khan Bhasani and was named after Mohammad Ali Jouhar, an important leader of the Khilafat movement of British India. The school was initially located at an used government office. In 1958, in the aftermath of the Bengali language movement, a martyr's memorial was erected on campus.[5] During the 1969 East Pakistan mass uprising one student was killed and ten were injured on 4 February when the East Pakistan Rifles opened fire on a demonstration.[6] During the Bangladesh Liberation war, a former professor of the college, Abdul Khaleque, was in the local pro-Pakistan militia, the Razakars. He is responsible for war crimes and forcibly converting Hindus into Muslims.[7]

In 1975 the government of Bangladesh nationalised the college.[1]
