@sarwat MashaAllah Mr.Afroz

MashaAllah Mr.Afroz is doing a wonderful job, surely he is a deserving candidate.

Pfi as an organization is good, they have SPONSORED the scholarship of many Journalist/Lawyers. Even this year they have sponsored many lawyers and journalist. in 2011,results of lawyer exam in bangalore, pfi sponsored candidates got 3rd RANK in Law and other rank as well. InshaAllah in a short period of time, pfi would have created many Activist across many states.

Popular Front of India, Has also done many similar things, posting the work requires alot of effort to gather from the 16 states which they are active in. A lot of work PFI does it by itself,some work is done by pfi's sister concern organizations or backs/helps other organizations/people who are active in struggle against injustice/empowerment.

In the end all they want to achive is a empowered Muslim community.

i think we should also

i think we should also include the name of Dr.Shariq nisar, architect of BSE Shariah index for the award.

As per vote winner SDPI

As per vote winner SDPI Chairman & Popular front Former chairman E. Aboobaker. But how winner is Afroz Aslam

TCN had issued a statement

TCN had issued a statement that , few people are advertising/promoting a particular group and people. So in the end they formed a committee and voted/decided the winner themselves.
Hence nullifying the votes.

In simple terms a few persons from other organizations objected to giving award to sdpi/pfi, cos it might give negative image to twocircles. Two circles is a wonderful portal
but it gave into pressure. But I am sure there is Allah's khyr in it, and in future years twocircles would have grown very big and pfi/sdpi will surely receive award from them. AMeen

But... Afroz Alam is a well deserving person, I am Happy that they choose a good person who is working for the benefit of the Ummah. If sdpi/pfi would organize felicitation ceremony they too would have chosen Afroz Alam for his work.
