    Yusufali(one F) in the title & Yusuffali (two Fs)in the text. Which is correct?
    Where is Thrissur?
    Where is he from? Large Indian religious communities can be found in UK,USA, Canada,South & East Africa & other countries.
    Please, do not assume everybody is familiar with Yusufali/Yusuffali.
