DIIT president Dr Atif Suhail Siddiqui has been offered a reserach fellowship by America's prestigious Yale University. Dr. Atif Suhail Siddiqui is attending Yale from April 20, 2018, in sha Allah.

He shall work on Al-Nanawtawi's Ilm al-Kalam during his stay in the department of religious studies of Yale University, New Haven, USA. Dr. Siddiqui gets this honour by the Yale University's department of religious studies after his book on Al-Nanawtawi's biography got the attention of Yale's scholars. Especially the department invited Dr Siddiqui to join the community of Western scholars and introduce the work of Al-Nanawtawi's Ilm al-Kalam to the Western world.

It is also an honour for Dr Siddiqui to become first scholar from the East to attend any of the Western Universities as a Research Fellow on the erudite work of Imam Muhammad Qasim Al-Nanawtawi. Thus his appointment as the research fellow at Yale will work as a bridge between Deoband and the West.
