Muslim League Session condoles Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din’s death

The voluminous book Foundations of Pakistan, All-India Muslim League Documents: 1906–1947, 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 25–26 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.”

— Volume II, p. 210.

This was the first Session (annual meeting) of the Muslim League since the death of Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din in December 1932.
