    Well spotted. I thought I’d use an actual photo of him in the WSM posting.

    Matt,

    I think you should remove the traditional dress picture in the link.

    1) I think the pic is irrelevant. Why not replace it with the actual picture of Suhuyini? I know his picture is not included in the hard copy of the Standard but that was a mistake in my opinion. It should be corrected in the online version.

    2) Also, maybe it’s just a problem with chrome, but that picture totally messes up with the formatting of the article.

    Reading the text it would appear that Suhuyini was very proud of the original pre-Muslim culture he came from (the reason for him changing his name) and that’s why I included the tradition dress image. Whilst I’ve been working on the Standard we have very rarely (for what reason I’m not sure) included a portrait in an obituary.

    Our blog had early access to his obituary and used a cropped photo which accompanied it
