PFI Condoles The Demise Of Dr. Fakhruddin

Meanwhile, Popular Front of India (PFI) chairman OMA Salam has expressed his condolences on the demise of Dr. Fakhruddin Mohammed.

“It is with heavy heart that we received the news of demise of Dr. Fakhruddin Mohammed, renowned educationalist, philanthropist, community leader and secretary of MESCO”, Salam said.

His death, PFI, in a statement, said, will leave an irreparable loss to the Muslim community in Hyderabad and across the country. A physician by profession and a pious servant of the community, Dr. Fakhruddin spent most of his life in efforts for empowering Muslim community. He contributed remarkably by promoting education, community development, religious training and poverty alleviation among the Muslim community. He played instrumental role in the South India Council, a community empowerment initiative that later gave way to the formation of Popular Front of India.

Popular Front expressed its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and friends. May Allah Almighty accept his virtuous deeds and reward him with Jannah.

Meanwhile, it may be mentioned here that MESCO was founded in 1983 by Dr. Fakhruddin along with his team and he was instrumental in bringing Muslim doctors around the world on a common platform. He flagged off ambulance and relief aid services during the first wave of Covid in 2020 in collaboration with the Al Hamd Foundation. He transformed MESCO from a Diagnostic Centre to a group of educational institutions from KG to PG level.
