Award for Kaleem Kawaja
In their well-attended annual convention in Chicago on August 7, the Indian Muslim Council, an organization of Muslims from India, honored Kaleem Kawaja, with their "Altaf Hussain Hali Award in Humanitarian Work". The council gives this award, named after Hali, one of the greatest social reformers in India in the late nineteenth century, every year, for "selfless service towards the upliftment of Muslims in India."
