The words Quaide Milleth mean Guide of the people and leader of the community. Quaide Milleth Alhaj Muhammed Ismail Sahib was born in 1896 at Pettai, Tirunelveli, bloomed on the horizon of Tamil Nadu public life and the fragrance of his service blossomed across the whole India, even crossing India. Ismail Sahib was ignited into Indias freedom struggle by Mahatma Gandhi. He shared the political stage with stalwarts like Shri. Rajagopalachari and Dr. C.N. Annadurai. He was an exemplary legislator for many years. He was an activist in Khilafath Movement. His participation in the fund mobilization for Jamia Millia by Dr. Zakir Hussain exemplified his magnanimity.
