Tribute Prof. Dr Abul Khayr Kashfi


  • Syed Munir Wasti


Who is this stepping softly but firmly amid the overwhelming darkness? Head bowed but eyes alert, treading a long-familiar path? It is not even dawn yet but the determined traveller heads effortlessly towards his goal. It is a road that he travels five times a day – to a little makeshift mosque between ‘the desert and the sown’. In the daylight, the figure would be familiar to Campus residents as Prof. Dr. Abul Khayr Kashfi because only a few would have the will and strength to wake up for the pre-dawn prayers.
