  1. According to my best and memorable experience with the renoWnd personality of honourable SAIDULLAH SAHEB flourished during national Da’wa Programme mission to Shillong conducted by Darul Huda Islamic University Kerala, India it is pertinent to be said that I was much impressed in his hostility and cooperation with our delegation. And I can doubtlessly say that he is one of the dreams and hopes of Indian Muslim community especially he is an EXTRA ORDINARY figure in the Meghalayan Muslim community. May the all mighty bless him.
