In the recently published Editorial titled, The Gentle Crusader, Seema Chishti, writes about how Justice Sachar's principles stood firm and were his guiding light until his last days. Sachar is the name of a report, for reporters and students put together by Rajinder Sachar and the prime minister's high-level committee for the social, economic and educational backwardness of Muslims.
However, for those who knew him personally, Justice Rajinder Sachar, will forever be remembered as a wiry, frail and immaculately turned out gentleman, carried none of the airs he could have around him. Rajinder Sachar till his last days did what was required to be done, standing up for what he believed in, enthusiastically building fellowship between all sorts of odd eggs and exuding oodles of energy to make it work.
The writer goes on to mention how Sachar's socialist calling did not get signed by the heat of the communal fires that uprooted him from his home and hearth. Personal experiences often make people bitter, but it was not so with Sachar. Till his last days, Sachar battled hard to ensure that India would never revisit 1947. In his demeanour, optimism and tireless efforts at somehow making a difference, there is almost nobody he met whose life he did not touch. For the entire Editorial, CLICK HERE
