Acknowledging his lifelong services to the promotion and preservation of Urdu language in the Middle East, three prominent entities in India recently bestowed Mohammad Habibun Nabi, an Indian expatriate living in Doha, with awards.
Nabi, a passionate community volunteer and patron of leading Asian community welfare organisations, received the awards during his recent visit to India.
His first award was the Hindi Urdu Shatiya Award, given by Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik. His second award was Ashraf Qadari Award for Urdu Tahrik, given by NCP General Secretary Tariq Anwar and Dr Abdul Ghafoor, the Minister of Minority Welfare Bihar Government.

“Due to involvement in cultural activities Urdu was very close to my heart and I have always tried to promote Urdu in any form or any manner to the community and by the grace of God, I have achieved a lot of success during the last 40 years of my journey,” says the recently awarded community leader.
Besides Qatar, Nabi has lived in many countries of the Middle East. He began his long journey in the region from Baghdad, Iraq in 1980. During his stay there, he participated in and organised many sporting activities for his company Mid Mac, besides many cultural activities and special programmes related to Urdu.
