War Hero: Khwaja Sayeed Shahabuddin honored by the International Committee of the Red Cross

January 26, 2009

gupshup1_642715Mr. Khwaja Sayeed Shahabuddin (or Sayeed Bhai as some of us fondly call him) is the Editor/Writer of the DNF Newsletter.

It is a matter of honor for us that Sayeed Bhai was recently honored by the International Committee of the  Red Cross at PAF Air War College in Karachi. Unbeknownst to most DNF family members Sayeed Bhai was trained as a naval cadet and was held captive by the Japanese during World War II. He later wrote about his experiences in a book, “To HIM I owe my life”, in which he recounted his days in captivity and resounding faith in Allah.

Details of the event honoring our War Hero: Khwaja Sayeed Shahabuddin can be read by going to the Newsletter section of this website and by selecting the December 2008 edition of the DNF Newsletter.
