Republic Day celebrations are special to all the Indians, but this year's Republic Day celebrations brought new enthusiasm in the life of K.A Abdul Jabbar. On this day, Jabbar was conferred with the prestigious Kottai Ameer Communal Harmony award by Tamil Nadu's Chief Minister E. Palaniswami for all the works he has been doing for years to ensure communal harmony. A resident of Kuniyamuthur in Coimbatore, Jabbar has been selling communal concord amongst completely different communities for years. He renders social service by conducting eye camps, blood donation camps, medical camps and distribution of education aid. His jamaat namely Tajul Islam Sunnath Jamaath has been organising 'Samuthava Diwali' with people from all religions for the last four years. It is due to citizens like Jabbar who have been working tirelessly towards noble causes irrespective of caste and community, that India stands undivided and stronger.
