It is with deep remorse to inform the untimely demise of our dear - TM Aboobacker (Backer Bhai) resident of Lillypur, Haddo. He has returned to the Almighty after having suffered a lethal stroke in Bangalore. Backer Bhai, as many of you know was a happy soul who was always ready to provide his help to the society. An Executive member of AIKMCC and an active member of AMSO, he has been always a rock support in organizing various programmes in the Islands.

The role and voluntary service provided by Backer Bhai in the conduct of 100 Years culminating programme - Jashn-e-shatabdi was a treat to us all. Putting all his resources, he ensured that programme is done with a big bang impact. He was always available for help on a phone call.

His demise is certainly a great loss to the community and the Islands. Let us all keep him in our prayers. May Almighty ease qabar for him. May we all be united again in Jannat-ul-firdous.

Let us also pray to Almighty to provide strength to his family and friends to bear this irreparable loss.

The state committee of AMSO & AIKMCC deeply mourns the demise.
