Pankajbhai has remembered Abbas as a wonderful person. He said that he is a very noble person. He used to offer prayers five times a day and also perform Hajj.

He said: “Abbas’s father and his father were friends. There was no secondary school in his village and he was about to drop out after primary education. After which my father convinced his father to send Abbas with him. So that they can complete their studies.”

Pankajbhai said that Abbas completed his eighth and ninth studies by staying with us.
