Prof. Saifuddin Soz, Former Union Minister has issued the following statement to the press, today.
“I express my deepest sadness at the demise of a great scholar of Urdu and Persian literature and a very competent Teacher/Administrator that was Saifuddin Saifi of Sopore, Kashmir. He was also a litterateur and an eminent Urdu Poet.
It is so tragic that Kashmir has lost one of the most prominent educationists, who was perfect in the art of scholarship in teaching and the school administration.
I have a feeling that with Saifuddin Saifi’s demise, an era of Educational Scholarship in Kashmir has come to an end.
May God grant peace to his soul and fortitude to the bereaved family.”
