The award was presented to him by UP Governor Ram Naik in a function held at Lucknow.

Professor Afraheem was presented with a shawl and a certificate by the Governor. While referring to Urdu and Hindi as the most spoken languages of India, Naik said such functions need to be organized on a continuous basis for bringing peace and harmony in the country.

Professor Afraheem said literature is characterized by the love instead of hatred.

He further said that the simultaneous prevalence of two languages could foster a peaceful environment and bring harmonious development in the country.

Professor Afraheem said the responsibility of ensuring such prevalence rests on the literature itself.

Previously Professor Afraheem was also nominated for Sughra National Integration award by the UP Govt which carries Rupees One Lakh as reward.
