In the sad demise of Dr Asghar Ali Engineer,
India has lost one of her great
A reformist who feared no one, Dr. Engineer championed the rights of ALL-within his own community and outside. His pursuit for scholarship was legendary and few could match his intellectual prowess. His social commitment transcended the narrow confines of any particular religion.
He was a deeply religious person and at the same time an avowed secularist
The secular and the civil rights movement in the country has truly lost someone who was looked upon as an inspirer, friend, mentor and guide!He will be greatly missed!
May he rest in peace!
Our condolences to his bereaved family!
