Former captain Nawab Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi's youngest daughter Saba Ali Khan has taken over as custodian of a royal trust which looks after the Pataudi properties spread across India and Saudi Arabia.
Speaking to reporters last evening after formally assuming the charge as the Naib Mutawalli (custodian) of the Aukaf-e-Shahi Trust, Saba said it was her father's dream that she should take over this post.
Saba said her father's death left her with a sense of immense responsibility much before she expected.
Replying to a query Saba said she would try her best to come true to late Pataudi's expectations and would like to work on the issues related to education of the girl child and service to the poor in her capacity as custodian of the trust.
The huge properties that comes under the royal trust include grand mosques, religious structures, the famous dargah of Sufi saint Baba Peer Fatehullah at Raisen, charitable institutions, graveyards and the Rubaats (shelters) for Haj pilgrims in Saudi Arabia.
On the occasion, Saba presented a cheque for Rs five lakh to Madhya Pradesh Wakf Board chairman Ghuran-e-Azam for the charitable 75-bed hospital run by it.
