Obituaries: 16-31 October
Nattika Moosa Musliar, renowned scholar
and Kerala State general secretary of Sunni Yuvajana Sangham died in Malappuram
on October 4. He was 49.
Moosa Musliar was well known among the political and religious circles of Kerala.
He was the president of Melattoor gram panchayat. Musliar's contributions to
transforming the Sunni Yuvajana Sangham to a force to be reckoned with in the
state were priceless.
In his capacity as a scintillating orator, Moosa Musliar was an attraction in
both religious and political domains. He was a recipient of the award instituted
by the Sharjah based Sunni Afkar Readers' Forum for the best preacher of Sunni
ideology. He was the one editor of The Hikmat weekly.
The series of speeches undertaken by him in early nineties for the cause of
communal harmony was whole-heartedly welcomed by all. These speeches helped
patch up gaping wounds between the two major communities in the region. Though
his allegiance to his ideology was strong enough he formed close friendship with
all he knew within and outside his organisations.
Moosa Musliar departed at a time when the Muslim community in the state was very
much in need of personalties of his calibre.
Asghar Jarodwi, a well known veteran poet has died. He was 68. He had
been sick for a long time. He was buried in his native place Jaroda, district
Meerut. He is survived by wife, two daughters and four sons.
