Mawlana Anzar Shah son of internationally recognized scholar Shaikh Mawlana Anwar Shah Kashmiri (Allah have mercy on them) said,

‘My respected father is reported to mention this multiple times in his teaching sessions that when we came from Kashmir (to India) we found Deen at Shaikh (Mawlana Rasheed Ahmad) Gangohi’s place. Then with Shaikh al-Hind (Mawlana Mehmood al-Hasan Deobandi). Now if someone wants to see the real Deen he should visit Thana Bhawan (Hakim al-Umma Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi) (Allah have mercy on them all).’
