Biography

(b. 1881), Afghan. Resident in W.A., 1918 (Loois 1988). May be ABDUL ROOGH, who sued another Afghan, AMERULA, over a complicated camel deal in Broome, 1918. Agreed to drop charges if AMERULA 'was willing to go to the mosque, be bathed, put on absolutely clean linen, and swear on the Koran that he owed nothing more than 29 pounds'. This occurred (Argus 20 Sept 1918, p.5). ABDUL ROOF was resident at Perth mosque in 1914, when he supported NOORAM SHAH's application to reenter (Ext Affairs docket 11659/1915, with photographs, National Archives, Canberra).
