Washington DC: The Association of Indian Muslims of America (AIM) has conveyed its profound sorrow at the untimely passing away of Dr Asghar Ali Engineer, renowned Indian Muslim scholar, reformer and community leader, in Mumbai.

"The untimely demise of Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer is being seriously felt by a majority of Indian Muslims who live in North America. For many decades now, Dr Engineer was continuously engaged in a crusade to fight for justice for the suffering Muslims of India, to bring about social reforms in the community, to improve communal harmony between Muslims and other Indians, and to write very meaningful essays on these subjects very frequently in the Indian and International media," said Kaleem Kawaja, Treasurer, AIM.

Mr. Kawaja stated, "Our Association hosted Dr Engineer's lectures in Washington DC during his many visits to USA, starting in 1990 when he was the keynote speaker at our Association's convention. His penchant to reform the Muslim society in India to make it more correctly follow the guidance from Quran and Hadith, and to give better equal rights to Muslim women within that context are remarkable achievements that very few Muslim leaders in India can match. We hope that God gives Indian Muslims the ability to follow in his footsteps to become better Muslims and better Indians. We convey our condolences to his family and pray for the slvation of his soul."
