Popular Front chairman condoles demise of Maulana Esa Fazil Manba’i

Popular Front of India Chairman E Abubacker has expressed deep condolence on the demise of Maulana Esa Fazil Manba’I, the Kerala state president of All India Imam’s Council and a veteran Islamic Scholar in Kerala.

In statement issued today E Abubacker said that Maulana Esa Manba’i has passed away after leading an accomplished life, both as a scholar and as an activist. A renowned Alim in south Kerala, he has a large number of students from various parts of the state. Maulana never confined himself to mere scholastics and remained active for cause of empowering Imams for empowering the community to his last breathe. Age or ill-health never deterred him from his pursuits. A warrior of justice, he stood up for the rights of the weaker sections. He belongs to the great tradition of scholars who fearlessly spoke truth to the power and lived the life of a believer who, as Prophet (PBUH) said, dies with sweat on their forehead. His life is a role model both for Alims and laymen.

He conveyed deep condolences to his grieving family and colleagues and prayed to Almighty Allah for his salvation.
