New Delhi, March 7: The Institute of Objective expressed its immense grief and sorrow on the sad demise of Hassan 'Abd Allah al-Turabi, an eminent religious and Islamist political leader in Sudan, who passed away on March 5, 2016.

On his demise, Dr. M. Manzoor Alam, Chairman, Institute of Objective Studies said that the Muslim world has lost "one of the most influential figures in modern Sudanese politics, and a "longtime ideological leader". He was instrumental in institutionalizing shariah (Islamic law) in the northern part of the country, he further said. He recalled his meeting with Al-Turabi way back in late 70s in Riyadh where he interacted with him over the issues of Muslim world.

May Allah accept all his good deeds, bless him with the choicest place in the heaven and grant Muslim ummah all the patience to bear this loss, Aameen.
