Sayyid Shihab’s passing has been a bitter sweet reality for those who knew and respected him. This noble, widely-respected statesman and leader of millions appealed to more hearts in his life than most humanists combined. Such was his love for humanity and his concern for everyone whose path ever crossed his. He fought for the rights of the oppressed, standing firmly for female empowerment. He will forever be remembered as “the voice of democratic secular principles”, as well as a practitioner of secular solidarity. A noble and humble politician and leader of masses, he had a following of millions in India and worldwide. Apart from living his life as an inspiring soul who played a massive role in millions of lives, Sayyid Shihab was incredibly fond of reading.
In the age when DPs and Statuses are becoming increasingly popular, Sayyid Shihab’s quotations, based on India’s tolerant and secular traditions, will tremendously help to promote the spirit of communal amity and national integration among the young generation.
