Hatim Badri, Syedna's representative in New Delhi, conveyed his best wishes to members of the Anjumane Taraqqi-e-Urdu association. He said, "I want to highlight the longstanding relationship and bond between Syedna’s family and the association, dating back to the time when the 51st leader Syedna Taher Saifuddin was the Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University and Dr Zakir Hussain was the Vice-Chancellor and President of the association."

The association faced many challenges in its early days, but with the support of Syedna Taher Saifuddin, they were able to construct the building during Dr. Zakir Hussain's tenure.
