In Demise of Ebrahim Sulaiman Sait, a Pillar of the Community has Fallen
Mushawarat Pays Warm Tributes to his Memory, Offers Condolences to his Family, Followers and Admirers
Prays to Allah for his Maghferat
New Delhi, 27 April, 2005: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim
Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:
“The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) deeply mourns the sad demise of Janab Ebrahim Sulaiman Sait, one of its founder members and a member of its Supreme Guidance Council, as an irreparable loss to the Community.
Sait Saheb, as he was friendly called, played long innings in national and Muslim politics. A member of Parliament for decades, until recently he was the President of the Indian Union Muslim League till he formed the Indian National League. Also a founder member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, he was associated with every struggle of the Muslim community for security and dignity, equality and justice, whether it was the movement for the restoration of the Muslim character of the AMU, the movement for the defence of the Shariat against any interference by the Executive, the Legislature or the Judiciary, the movement for the restoration of the Babari Masjid, as a member of the Babari Masjid Movement Coordination Committee or the Movement for the Empowerment of Muslim Indians. A spell-binding speaker in Urdu, he had the entire country as his field of action. In every sense of the term, he was a pillar of the Muslim community.
Today that pillar has fallen, the stirring voice has fallen silent.
The AIMMM pays its sincere tribute to him as one of the greatest leaders of the Muslim community after independence and prays to Allah to accept his services to the community and grant him eternal peace and offers its condolences to the members of the bereaved family and his admirers and followers all over the country.”
