2)   ‘Jhulelal Award’, for rendering yeoman’s service to Sindhi community in U.A.E. 1991 (In Mumbai by International Sindhi Panchayat Federation).

3)   He is very actively associated with several social & cultural organisations in Dubai and in India.

Finale :

A pure ‘Sindhi’ from humble beginning he has made a business Empire particularly in UAE but significant factor stands out that he knows how gainfully to spend that money.  You ask for financial help (of course for genuine cause) it is there – ‘philanthropy’ par excellence is demonstrated in every action of this great soul. He has been well wisher and God father of Sindhi community, language and culture in UA.E.   No Sindhi cultural programme is complete without Murijmal’s involvement in it.
Indian Institute of Sindhology at Adipur is virtually his creation and he has been nurturing it well even though at considerable cost.

He has a personality, which can influence and inspire. An ever smiling hero his presence is felt whenever he goes.
