obituary_2The Secretariat of the Federation of KSI Jamaats of Africa received with grief and sorrow the sad news of the demise of Alhaj Houssenaly Goulamaly Hirdjee of Antananarivo, Madagascar which occurred on Friday, 5th October, 2012. Marhum was buried on the following day in Antananarivo, Madagascar.

Marhum held the position of Chairman of Conseil Regional of Madagascar from 1980 to 1983; he had also served as President of Antananarivo Jamaat.

Marhum was an ardent supporter of Africa Federation; he was also a Councillor representing Conseil Regional of Madagascar for many years and regularly attended the AFED Conferences and Supreme Council Sessions.

In his condolence message to the Chairman of the Regional Council of Madagascar and to the President of Antananarivo Jamaat, the Chairman of Africa Federation, Alhaj Anwarali

Dharamsi expressed his deep sorrow on the demise of Alhaj Houssenaly Hirdjee. Alhaj Anwarali met Marhum in Antananarivo during the AFED delegation visit to Madagascar in February 2012.

Alhaj Anwarali Dharamsi in his message referred to late Alhaj Houssenaly as a committed person who devoted his valuable time and resources in the cause of spreading the religion of Islam and of the Madha'b of Ahlul Baiyt (A.S.). Marhum was a dedicated and farsighted leader; his passing away is a big loss not only to his family but to the entire community. He will be greatly missed by many who knew him for his helpful guidance and kindness.

On behalf of Africa Federation, we convey our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family of Marhum Houssenaly, the Executive Committee of Conseil Regional of Madagascar and the Managing Committee and members of KSI Jamaat of Antananarivo.

We pray to Allah (S.W.T.) to grant Marhum a lofty position in the proximity of our Aeema-e-Tahireen (A.S.).

We request Mumineen to remember Marhum with Sura-e-Fateha for the maghferat of the departed soul.
