Weekend Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

The

Cen­tral Is­lamic Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Guyana (CIOG) has paid trib­ute to one of its re­cently de­parted mem­bers, Mo­hamed “Fuzzy” Sat­taur who passed away on Satur­day last.

“Brother Sat­taur was a very ac­tive par­tic­i­pant in many of the CIOG’s pro­grammes, and as­sisted in the de­vel­op­ment of projects that served to ben­e­fit many Mus­lims in our coun­try. His ser­vice to the coun­try in his po­lit­i­cal ca­pac­ity did not di­min­ish his com­mit­ment to his re­li­gion of Is­lam, and his burn­ing de­sire to foster good re­la­tion­ships and serve his fel­low broth­ers and sis­ters,” the CIOG stated in a mes­sage.

It noted that Sat­taur will long be remembered for his many achieve­ments in the field of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. “His work in im­prov­ing the ra­dio and tele­vi­sion net­work in Guyana will re­main a hall­mark of his achieve­ment,” the CIOG stated.

The CIOG said it will cer­tainly miss Sat­taur, who served as the CIOG’s Trea­surer for a while. “The Pres­i­dent, Ex­ec­u­tives and the en­tire CIOG ex­tend our sin­cere con­do­lences to his wife Mala, his chil­dren and his en­tire fam­ily. It is our fer­vent prayer that Almighty Al­lah (SWT) grant the fam­ily of Brother Sat­taur pa­tience and per­se­ver­ance at this time of loss, and that He grant peace to our brother and Jan­natul Fir­dous on the day of Youmul Kayama,” the state­ment added.

Sat­taur was the for­mer Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer (CEO) of the Na­tional Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Net­work (NCN).

Among those at his fu­neral on Sun­day were for­mer Pres­i­dents of Guyana, Bhar­rat Jagdeo and Don­ald Ramo­tar.
