RIP Justice Rajindar Sachar

Dated: 20-4-2018

Rajindar Sachar, a legendary personality
who stood for rights of deprived sections

“Very sad to hear the demise of Justice Rajindar Sachar, a courageous jurist and prominent human rights defender in the country”, said E M Abdul Rahiman, chairman of Empower India Foundation (EIF). He observed that Justice Sachar was a man of integrity and will be remembered for his uninterrupted fight for the rights of deprived sections.  He has headed Prime Minister’s High-level Committee on Muslims and submitted a most comprehensive report popularly known as ‘Sachar Committee Report’. No other report on the socio-economic condition of Muslims has been so widely discussed and thoroughly analysed at different levels

His death will be a great loss to all people working for a just society especially at a time when deprived sections are facing more severe social exclusions. E M Abdul Rahiman hoped the dreams cherished by Justice Sachar will be carried forward by numerous organisations and institutions that emerged as a post-Sachar development. He expressed deep condolences to the family and friends of Justice Sachar.
