Anwarbhai bid farewell to all those present and thanked the Africa Federation, Territorial Councils of Madagascar & Réunion Community members and leaders for their support and cooperation throughout his term. He said by him relinquishing the helm of The World Federation does not mean that his support and cooperation will end, he will continue his services to The World Federation when and wherever possible.
He pointed out that his term at The World Federation 2017-2020 is coming to an end in a few weeks’ time and new leadership will commence. He prayed for their success and full cooperation. He ended with prayers and duas for Marjae Taqleed, Ayatollah Al Uzma, Seyyid Ali al Hussainy al Sistani, his office bearers, leaders of all Regional Federations and Jamaats and for all community members.
