  • Community member: add your name and rationale here.
  • The proposal is a mix of GLAM, outreach, language-digitization project. It can have a far-fetched impact in terms of gathering vast documents, books, historical articles which are important reference materials for article development in later point of time. This seems to be a great volunteer effort driven by passionate Telugu WP Volunteers! Nicke.me (talk) 12:39, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
  • There is lack of such material on Internet. This material will not only benefits for communities in India but also in Pakistan. Ameen Akbar (talk) 06:27, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Andhra Pradesh and especially Hyderabad has been an important center of Islam in India for a long time. I think this project can be very useful. Satdeep Gill (talk) 09:14, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
  • I hail from Hyderabad. Hence, the Importance of this geographic location as the epicenter of Islam in India is manifestly overwhelming for me that it can hardly be refuted. --Muzammil (talk) 20:15, 26 September 2015 (UTC).

  • Conditional Support Support - as long as at least a decent number of the libraries you named you are already in contact with and have more or less okayed the project, I'm good with it. To the commenter above me, this belongs as an IEG, not a PEG. PEG does not (except in convoluted circumstances) pay wages. Kevin (talk) 20:16, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
