Mufti Abdul Qayyum Ahmad Husain Mansoori

Islamic scholar Mufti Abdul Qayyum Mansuri was accused of providing logistics support to terrorists in the September 2002 terrorist attack on Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar. His mistake was that he involves himself in social work, for the poor and marginalised. The agencies noticed his yeoman services during 2002 Gujarat pogrom relief activities. He is one of the trustees of Idara Falah-ul-Muslim Trust that runs Suffah English School at Kalupur, a Muslim-dominated are in Ahmedabad. He says the need for an English-medium school is as much as there is a need for a madrasa.
