He informed that a directory of alumni members had also been prepared containing the names and addresses of some 25,000 members from 102 countries of the world.

Many websites have been developed on the Internet in relation to Sir Syed and Aligarh Muslim University and they contain enormous information about the Aligarh Movement which ultimately led to the creation of Pakistan.

Dr Shaheer paid rich tributes to the late chancellor Z A Nizami and AMUOBA General Secretary the late Mohammed Zakir Ali Khan for the cause of the promotion of the Aligarh Movement.

Appreciating the services of Dr Shaheer in relation to the cause of the Aligarhians, AMUOBA General Secretary Mukhtar Ahmed Naqvi described the establishment of Sir Syed University a great achievement of the Old Boys of Aligarh Muslim University and said this exemplary feat should be emulated the world over.
