Ali Nazim (Second from right) with the BIT Batches 1 and 2 of Villa College, and Adhil sir and Leela miss.
Ali Nazim sir, the Principal of Hiriyaa School in Maldives, is one of the five who was martyred by drowning with four of his students, at K. Atoll Huraa this morning, during a Fisheries Science trip.
He had also been our beloved lecturer at Villa College. He taught several modules for the OUM affiliated Degree Programmes, including English for Oral, Written, etc. Communications and other Education related modules at Villa College.
More than a lecturer, he had been a friend and a fellow coffee buddy. Almost always, we saw him smiling, always waiting for a good laugh. We have lost a very special person and the best lecturer we ever had, and will never be able to fill the void that has been left behind.
According to several reports, Ali Nazim sir single-handedly tried to rescue several drowning students, and was able to save the lives of four of them, making him a true Hero. He died while trying to rescue the rest of the students.
We deeply respect and love Ali Nazim sir. He was a huge asset for this country and is a True Maldivian Hero. We, the students of Villa College, send heartfelt condolences to his family, and pray that he receive eternal peace and blessings in heaven. May Allah give strength to the family of Ali Nazim sir and provide them with courage in these hard times.
Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Raaji-oon. May Allah Subhanahu Watha’Aala grant him the highest place in Jannat. Ali Nazim Sir, you’ve left us precious memories, your wise words will be our guide, Deep in our hearts you will always stay, Loved and remembered every day.
