The President of The World Federation, Alhaj Safder Bhai Jaffer, would like to congratulate Sister Zulekha Hirji on her new role as Head of Madrasah Centre of Excellence (MCE).
“It gives me great pleasure to introduce our new head of MCE, Zulekha Hirji who will be succeeding our longest standing member of MCE Naushad Mehrali.
Naushad Mehrali has shown great passion and dedication to the MCE department. He has grown the department successfully and was able to expedite many important programmes earlier due to the pandemic.
We are thankful for Naushad Bhai who will be around for a smooth transition and advisory capacity upon Sister Zulekha Hirji joining in September.”
