E. Abubacker, chairman, Popular Front of India has conveyed deep condolences over the sad demise of the renowned Islamic scholar and Milli leader Maulana Abdul Wahab Kilji sahib. By the demise of Maulana Abdul Wahab Kilji, Indian Muslim community has lost a powerful voice for justice and peace, that too at times of frequent atrocities and rights violations. Maulana Abdul Wahab Kilji, while leading the Ahle-Hadith movement in the country, was active in the leadership of Muslim joint platforms like All India Muslim Personal Law Board and All India Milli Council. While for many Muslim scholars, commitment to particular viewpoints on certain religious aspects happened to prevent them from joining hand with other maslak groups, Maulana was an exception. For Maulana Abdul Wahab Kilji, commitment to his religious viewpoint provided him strength to work of the unity of Ummah and to align with all Muslim organisations.
E. Abubacker has recollected his affectionate association with late Maulana in various Milli platforms and described his demise a personal loss. E. Abubacker has stated that Maulana Abdul Wahab Kilji sahib was happy to cooperate with activities of Popular Front and remembered his participation in some of the milestone conferences held by the orgnaisation.
