    Dear all,

    My name is Muzammil and I come from India. I speak both Hindi and Urdu at the native level. I am comfortable with English - both written and oral. I’ve been a registered active Wikimedian for over five years now (starting 2011) . As I look back, some of my initial contributions were on Hindi Wikipedia, mainly on AIDS Control Agencies in India. I later contributed to a wide range of topics, mostly on Hindi and Urdu Wikipedias, followed by English. I did a lot of maintenance work on Commons and soon became a filemover and rollbacker there. I rose to Sysop position on Urdu Wikipedia and Reviewer position on Hindi Wikipedia.I have a total of more than 56,000 edits on all Wikimedia projects put together.

    As a result of my efforts since 2012, I am glad that the first Hindi Wiki Sammelan Meet became a reality last year and I am optimistic for a large-scale Hindi Wiki Sammelan soon. I also hope to hold a similar events for Urdu Wikipedia which currently holds the top position among Indian language Wikipedias

    Over the last 2-3 years, I have also transformed myself into a “Wikimedia Researcher” - in the sense that I survey, study and write blogposts on leading Wikipedians, communities and events. I have so far written blogposts on English, Sanskrit, Esperanto, Urdu, Hindi, Maithili, Doteli, Ido, Punjabi, Western Punjabi and Ido Wikipedia(s)/ Wikipedian(s). I proactively worked with Maithili Wikipedians in getting their project out of incubator and became the admin of the mailing list in the process.

    My main objective in asking for steward rights is to address Steward requests, fight cross-Wiki spams and to counter vandalism. Examples of some incidents which I came across as an editor and resolved with the help of stewards are this cross-Wiki spam case and this counter-vandalism request. On a broader perspective, I would like to work in connection with SRP, SRG, SRM and SRCU and any other maintenance activity. Since I am comfortable with Latin, Perso-Arabic & Devanagri Scripts, I am ready to work with diverse communities across the world (as indicated in my research interests). I am interested in extending a helping hand to emerging as well as established communities and I feel that I will be able to justifiably discharge my duties as a Steward.
    Umpteen thanks for your consideration!!
