Nawab Sir Ahmed Hussain Amin Jung Bahadur, K.C.I.E., C.S.I., LL.D., was born in Madras on 11th August, 1863, in the family of a leading businessman. Matriculating from the Church of Scotland Mission institution of Madras and joining Christian College, Madras, he graduated in 1885 and then took his Law degree in 1889 from the Presidency College, Madras. He was the first Muslim to obtain a Master’s degree from Madras University. He then served as Deputy Collector and Magistrate in the district of Madras and later joined the Bar at Madras.

In 1893, he visited Hyderabad to appear in the Nizam’s High Court in a civil suit. Within three months of his arrival he was appointed Assistant Peshi Secretary to Nizam VII and when Sarwar Jung, the Peshi Secretary, retired in 1896, the Nizam appointed him as Peshi Secretary. Nizam VI had great trust in Sir Amin Jung and he was all in all during the last fifteen years of the rule of Mir Mahboob Ali Khan, Nizam VI.

He served the Nizam with great distinction. The day Nizam VI died, Sir Amin resigned but Nizam VII persuaded him to remain in service. He enjoyed the complete confidence and trust of Nizam VII as well. During the reign of Nizam VII he was promoted to “Sadar-ul-Muham” Peshi and entrusted with the actual work of Prime Minister, after the retirement of Salar Jung III.

When the Nizam administered directly for six years he was the “de facto” Prime Minister. Nawab Amin Jung attended the Delhi Durbar of 1902 as Peshi Secretary to Nizam VI and the Coronation Durbar in 1911 as Chief Secretary to Nizam VII. He received the insignia of C.S.I., K.C.I.E., in 1922. He was a member of the Hyderabad delegation to the Round Table Conference at London. Sir Amin Jung’s library was very famous in Hyderabad. He was closely associated with the first Urdu Freethason Lodge of Hyderabad.
