Legal Update February 2021 - Cross-Examination of Dr. Omar Malik

31 January 2021

The cross-examination of His Holiness Syedna Taher Fakhruddin Saheb TUS (the Plaintiff) concluded on 29th January 2019, after hearings on 27 days at the Hon’ble Bombay High Court. Next was the cross-examination of the Plaintiff’s expert witness, Professor Devin Stewart, Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Emory University, USA, followed by the cross-examination of the Plaintiff’s next witness, Mukasir-e-Dawat Dr. Syedi Husain Bhaisaheb Burhanuddin Saheb AAB, PhD in Quranic Studies from the University of Cambridge.

The Plaintiff has now closed his case, and the Defendant’s witnesses will now lead their evidence. The Defendant’s Counsel informed the Hon’ble Court that the Defendant will not be giving his own evidence as a witness, and the Defendant’s first witness will be Dr. Omar Malik, a neurologist who was amongst the doctors who treated the 52nd Dai in the hospital in London when the 52nd Dai suffered a stroke.

Four sessions have been scheduled for cross-examination on 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 11th February 2021. Maulana TUS irshaad mubarak that Mumineen do "Hasbunallahu wa ne'mal wakeel" Tasbeeh (450 times) and pray "Nasr-wal-Mahaba" and other doas.

Suit updates are presented in a visual timeline which shows the stage by stage progress, including links to press reports from many of the key stages.

May Allah Ta'ala grant Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS Nasr-e-Aziz and Fath-e-Mubeen.
