New Delhi: Dr. Syed Ahmed Khan, former Deputy Director and head of the Unani Medical Centre at Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi, has been conferred with the prestigious Bhagirathi Award 2023 in a ceremony.

Dr. Khan, who is General Secretary of All India Unani Tibbi Congress (AIUTC) was awarded for his exceptional contributions by the chairman of Delhi State Congress Committee Doctor Cell, Dr. R.B. Singh, and founder president of the Bhagirathi Samajik Sanskritik Manch, Mahant Suresh Sharma of Hanuman Temple, Connaught Place, New Delhi.

On this occasion, a former Member of the Parliament and senior leader of the Congress, Jai Prakash Agarwal presented a shield, certificate and shawl to awardees.

The Bhagirathi Award ceremony is an annual event held near the Hanuman Temple in Connaught Place, New Delhi. The award ceremony is organized by the social organization known as the Bhagirathi Samajik Sanskritik Manch, with an aim to honour noted personalities who have made remarkable contributions in different fields.

Dr. Khan, who received numerous prestigious awards for his exceptional contributions to the field of the Unani system of medicine, retired in May 2022. He dedicated over 30 years to CCRUM, the apex government organization for Unani Medicine research, serving in various roles from Research Officer to Deputy Director.

In his congratulatory message, the president of the AIUTC Dr. Shakeel Ahmed hailed Dr. Khan and said that the award was a symbol of communal amity, especially in such a challenging time.

Acknowledging the collaborative spirit the award represents, Dr. Shakeel also conveyed his appreciation to the Bhagirathi Manch. He said, “Although Dr. Syed Ahmad has already received honours from both government and non-government organisations, this award holds great significance because it not only gives an honour but also promotes the Indian tradition of mutual respect and communal harmony.”

Other office bearers and key members of the All India Unani Medical Congress also extended their congratulations to Dr. Khan.
