Danish Superliga

The Danish Superliga is the current Danish football championship tournament, administered by the Danish Football Association. It is the highest football league in Denmark and is contested by 14 teams each year, with 1–3 teams relegated. Founded in 1991, the Danish Superliga replaced the Danish 1st Division as the highest league of football in Denmark. From the start in 1991, 10 teams were participating; the opening Superliga season was played during the spring of 1991, with the ten teams playing each other twice for the championship title. From the summer of 1991, the tournament structure would stretch over two years; the 10 teams would play each other twice in the first half of the tournament. In the following spring, the bottom two teams would be cut off, the points of the teams would be cut in half, the remaining eight teams would once more play each other twice, for a total of 32 games in a season; this practice was abandoned before the 1995–96 season, when the number of teams competing was increased to 12, playing each other thrice for 33 games per Superliga season.

For the first season of this new structure, Coca-Cola became the name sponsor of the league, named Coca-Cola Ligaen. After a single season under that name, Faxe Brewery became sponsors and the league changed its name to Faxe Kondi Ligaen. Before the 2001–02 season, Scandinavian Airlines System became the head sponsor, the name of the tournament changed to SAS Ligaen. From January 2015 the Danish Superliga is known as Alka Superliga, as the Danish insurance company Alka became name sponsor. Logos used for naming rights agreements for the league: From 1996 through 2016, the league included 12 clubs which played each other three times; the two teams with the fewest points at the end of the season were relegated to the Danish 1st Division and replaced by the top two teams of that division. During this era, each team played every other team at least once at home and once away plus once more either at home or away; the top six teams of the previous season played 17 matches at home and 16 away while the teams in 7th to 10th place plus the two newly promoted teams played 16 matches at home and 17 away.

Following the 2015–16 season, the league was expanded to 14 teams, accomplished by relegating only the last-place finisher in that season and promoting the top three teams from the 1st division. The 2016–17 season was the first for the new league structure, it began with the teams playing a full home-and-away schedule, resulting in 26 matches for each team. At that time, the league split into a six-team championship playoff and an eight-team qualifying playoff. All teams' table points and goals carry over into the playoffs. In the championship playoff, each team plays the others away again; the top team at the end of the playoff is Superliga champion and enters the Champions League in the second qualifying round. The second-place team enters the Europa League in the first qualifying round; the third-place team advances to a one-off playoff match for another Europa League place. If the winner of the Danish Cup finishes in the top three, the match will instead involve the fourth-place team; the qualifying playoff is split into two groups, with the teams that finished the regular season in 7th, 10th, 11th, 14th in one group and those finishing 8th, 9th, 12th, 13th in the other.

Each group plays home-and-away within its group. The top two teams from each group enter a knockout tournament, with each match over two legs. If the Danish Cup winner is among the top two finishers in either playoff group, it is withdrawn from the knockout playoff and its opponent automatically advances to the tournament final; the winner of that tournament faces the third-place team from the championship playoff in a one-off match, with the winner entering the Europa League in the first qualifying round. The bottom two teams from each group contest a relegation playoff with several steps, centered on a separate four-team knockout playoff consisting of two-legged matches: The third-placed teams in each group play over two legs, with the winners remaining in the Superliga and the losers advancing to a play-off final against the third-place team from the 1st Division; the bottom teams in each group play over two legs, with the winners advancing to a play-off final against the second-place team from the 1st Division, the losers dropping to next season's 1st Division.

Hakim Ajmal Khan

Mohammad Ajmal Khan, better known as Hakim Ajmal Khan, was a physician in Delhi and one of the founders of the Jamia Millia Islamia University. He founded another institution and Unani Tibbia College, better known as Tibbia College, situated in Karol Bagh, Delhi, he became the university's first chancellor in 1920 and remained in office until his death in 1927. Born on 11 February 1868, Khan descended from a distinguished line of physicians who had come to India during the reign of Mughal Emperor Babar, his family were all Unani doctors (hakims who had practised this ancient form of medicine since their arrival in the country. They were known as the Rais of Delhi, his grandfather, Hakim Sharif Khan, was a physician to Mughal Emperor, Shah Alam and had built the Sharif Manzil, a hospital-cum-college teaching Unani medicine. Hakim Ajmal Khan learnt the Quran by heart and as a child studied traditional Islamic knowledge including Arabic and Persian, before turning his energy to the study of medicine under the guidance of his senior relatives, all of whom were well-known physicians.

To promote the practice of Tibb-i-Unani or Unani medicine, his grandfather had set up the Sharif Manzil hospital-cum-college known throughout the subcontinent as one of the best philanthropic Unani hospitals where treatment for poor patients was free. He completed his Unani studies under Hakeem Abdul Jameel of Delhi. On qualifying in 1892, Hakim Ajmal Khan became chief physician to the Nawab of Rampur. Hailed as "Massiha-e-Hind" and "a king without a crown". Hakim Ajmal Khan, like his father, was reputed to effect miraculous cures and to have possessed a "magical" medicine chest, the secrets of which were known to him alone; such was his medical acumen that it is said that he could diagnose any illness by just looking at a person's face. Hakim Ajmal Khan charged Rs. 1000 per day for an out-of-town visit but if the patient came to Delhi, he was treated free, regardless of his position in society. Khan proved to be the most outstanding and multifaceted personality of his era with matchless contributions to the causes of Indian independence, national integration and communal harmony.

He took great interest in the expansion and development of the native system of Unani medicine and to that end built three important institutions, the Central College in Delhi, the Hindustani Dawakhana and the Ayurvedic and Unani Tibbia College better known as Tibbia College, which expanded research and practice in the field and saved the Unani System of Medicine from extinction in India. His untiring efforts in this field infused a new force and life into an otherwise decaying Unani medical system under British rule. Khan proposed the absorption of Western concepts within the Unani system, a view diametrically opposite to that adopted by physicians of the Lucknow school who wanted to maintain the system's purity. Hakim Ajmal Khan recognised the talents of chemist Dr. Salimuzzaman Siddiqui, whose subsequent research into important medicinal plants used in the field gave Unani medicine a new direction; as one of its founders, Khan was elected first chancellor of the Jamia Milia Islamia University on 22 November 1920, holding the position until his death in 1927.

During this period he oversaw the University's move to Delhi from Aligarh and helped it to overcome various crises, including financial ones, when he carried out extensive fund raising and bailed it out using his own money. Hakim Ajmal Khan changed direction from medicine towards politics after he started writing for the Urdu weekly Akmal-ul-Akhbar launched by his family. Khan headed the Muslim team who met the Viceroy of India in Shimla in 1906 and presented him with a memorandum written by the delegation. At the end of December 1906, he participated at the Dhaka founding of the All India Muslim League on 30 December 1906. At a time when many Muslim leaders faced arrest, Khan approached Mahatma Gandhi for help in 1917, thereafter uniting with him and other Muslim leaders such as Maulana Azad, Maulana Mohammad Ali Jouhar and Maulana Shaukat Ali in the well-known Khilafat movement. Khan was the sole person elected to the Presidency of the Indian National Congress, the Muslim League and the All India Khilafat Committee.

Before he died of heart problems on 29 December 1927, Hakim Ajmal Khan had renounced his government title, many of his Indian followers awarded him the title of Masih-ul-Mulk. He was succeeded to the position of Jamia Millia Islamia Chancellor by Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed Ansari. Ajmaline, a class Ia antiarrhythmic agent and Ajmalan a parent hydride, are named after him. After the partition of India, Khan's grandson Hakim Muhammad Nabi Khan moved to Pakistan. Hakim Nabi had learnt Tibb from his grandfather and opened'Dawakhana Hakim Ajmal Khan' in Lahore which has branches throughout Pakistan; the motto of the Ajmal Khan family is Azal-ul-Allah-Khudatulmal, which means that the best way to keep oneself busy is by serving humanity. "The spirit of non-cooperation pervades throughout the country and there is no true Indian heart in the remotest corner of this great country, not filled with the spirit of cheerful suffering and sacrifice to attain Swaraj and see the Punjab and the Khilafat wrongs redressed."
