Muhammad Zakir Ali Khan Sahab : RIP

He died today.
Verily we are for our Lord and unto Him is our return.
Aligarh Movement at some point of time turned into a way of life within the fold of Islam.
And Traditions of Aligarh of became the catch phrase of the tongues of Aligs.
And he is the one who put this sentiment into words in a book.
And books he wrote a lot.
And like a true Alig he was defined by Aligarh Movement.
It is so fresh in the memory when he reminded young Aligs the meaning of Spirit of Aligarh.
Alig spirit is to stand up for the occasion - he said.
As you said sir.
Hope we can live up to that image - a difficult but honourable task.
