Khwaja Kamal-ud-Dins death
The voluminous book Foundations of Pakistan, All-India Muslim
League Documents: 19061947, edited by Syed Sharifuddin
Pirzada (published by National Publishing House Limited Karachi,
1970) contains a record of the proceedings of the Sessions of the
Muslim League till 1947. In the report of the 23rd Session, held
in Delhi on 2526 November 1933, the Presidential address of
Hafiz Hidayat Husain begins as follows:
At the very outset, it is my most melancholy duty to mourn
the death of Sir Muhammad Shafi, Sir Syed Ali Imam, Sir Mohammad
Fakhruddin, Syed Hasan Imam and Khwaja Kamaluddin all these
were great in their line, greater still in their love for Islam.
All of them were, in one way or other, connected with the All-India
Muslim League, with unique and unsurpassed service to the credit
of each. May their souls rest in peace. To their families and
relations we offer our respectful sympathies in their bereavement.

since the death of Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din in December 1932.
