His death is a tremen­dous loss, for both the Mus­lim com­mu­nity and the prov­ince. May his soul rest in peace,” said Zille.

ANC MPL Cameron Dug­more and ANC pro­vin­cial sec­re­tary Faiez Ja­cobs also at­tended Hen­dricks’s fu­neral on Sat­ur­day.

Hen­dricks, who was born in Worces­ter, was the pres­i­dent of the MJC for 10 years.

He was also the di­rec­tor of the Al-Quds Foun­da­tion SA, ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber of the In­ter­na­tional Union of Mus­lim Schol­ars and a mem­ber of the World As­sem­bly of Mus­lim Youth.

Abra­hams said Hen­dricks’s Chris­tian grand­mother and mother were well versed in tra­di­tional Chris­tian the­ol­ogy, where hon­esty and in­tegrity were im­por­tant.
