A user ( also a Wikipedian), who claimed to a close relative of [[Vakkom
Maulavi]], says that his image on Wikimedia Commons, is not actually a
real image of him ( see mail below).
The image was originally uploaded by [[User:Sidheeq]] on ML Wiki, which I
have cross uploaded in ( 2008 ?) to EN.WIKI . It was later moved to
Commons. Sidheeq had started the [[Vakkom Maulavi]]  on Malayalam
Wikipedia and me in English 
Does anyone have any idea about the authenticity of the image ?

Dear Tinu bhai,
Being a small wikipedian, it's my pleasure to mailing you, one of the
biggies in India... you're doing a great job here... thank you so much for
your wonderful contribution..
let me come to the point... recently, i found an image of Vakkom
Moulavi,which is uploaded by you and the same has used in many articles.
its my humble request to remove this pic at least from wikipedia since its
not the original pic of Vakkom Moulavi. But the same used in many sites,
and also in some school text books years ago, and it created some
I'm very much sure abt this coz he's my great grand uncle. I heard lot abt
vakkom moulavi from my grandfather, Vakkom Majeed (
).. According to him, there is no
images or sketches available now. We, our family members tried a lot to
find one.. but no use...
Hope you understand this and kindly do the needful.
I think i can delete the image, not sure... but dont know the formalities..
Many thanks in advance
