Adieu to a Friend and a dedicated Social Worker

Alhaj Shaukatali Sultanali Mewawala


It is with deep sorrow and grief that we received the news of the death of Alhaj Shaukatali Sultanali Mewawala of Mumbai, India. Marhum had travelled to Iran on a spiritual journey of Ziyarat of the Holy Imam Ali ar Redha (AS) and the Holy Lady, Sayyedah Fatemah Masuma-e-Qum (AS). Marhum passed away in Tehran on Tuesday, 17th November 2015 at the age of 69.

Marhum was the founder and chairman of K.S.I. Medical Aid & Welfare Society – a charitable trust registered in Mumbai, India since 1980 whose main objective revolves around supporting the needy and deserving Khojas and Sadát families for medical, education and welfare relief. The administration, accountability and reporting of the affairs of the K.S.I. Medical Aid & Welfare Society has been regular and up to a good standard.

Marhum was a successful businessman and an industrialist. He established a company, Expo Gas Containers Ltd., a fully integrated Engineering, Construction and Manufacturing company which was incorporated in 1982 in Maharashtra, India. He was the chairman and managing director of the company.

Marhum was a compassionate, modest and sincere person with a strong conviction and dedication towards the development and wellbeing of the less fortunate families in India whose children are in need of education and whose parents/guardians are not affording school fees and other essential requirements of the families, like medical.

Africa Federation has lost a friend and a colleague in India with whom relationship dates back to early 80s. It was a pleasure to work with him for the noble cause of the mission of the Society which he passionately led.

We send our heartfelt condolences to family of the Marhum on this very sad occasion.

Marhum Shaukatali is survived by his wife, Shahida bai Mewawala, three sons Ali Abbas, Murtaza & Hasanain and a daughter Siddiqa bai Majidi.

May Allah (swt) by His infinite grace and mercy bestow His blessings and grant maghferat upon Marhum and place his soul in the proximity of our Aeema-e-Tahireen (AS). May He give strength and solace to the family to bear this huge loss.

Please let us remember Marhum Shaukatali Mewawala and all Marhumeens with Sura-e-Fateha.
