Social workers today, repatriated the mortal remains of prominent social worker Nandi Nazar, from UAE to India, a free service that he provided to hundreds during his lifetime.
Nandi Nazar, aged 61, passed away early Sunday morning due to a heart attack, according to community sources. Born on January 1, 1958 in Kozhikode, Nandi Nazar would've turned 62 this New Year.
Musliyar Kandy Abdul Nazar popularly known as Nandi Nazar, offered voluntary services through a community welfare group called Change a Life, Save a Life for this, through which he touched the lives of people in UAE as well as in India.
Hundreds of Indian community members, businessmen and friends and family members came together to pay final respects to the veteran businessman and social worker, fondly called Nandi 'ikka', meaning older brother among Malayali Muslims.
Nazri helped several people who sought visa amnesty or were in any kind of distress. He was very vocal in his support of the provision of free repatriation services of mortal remains and of bedridden patients.
