Oxford Dictionary of National Biography recognises Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din

By coincidence, in this very month of September when it is the centenary of the first arrival of Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din in England, an entry about him has been added in the September 2012 update to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography describes itself as “the national record of men and women who have shaped British history and culture, worldwide, from the Romans to the 21st century. The Dictionary offers concise, up-to-date biographies written by named, specialist authors. It is overseen by academic editors at Oxford University, UK, and published by Oxford University Press.”

It was first published as the Dictionary of National Biography in 1885.

The September 2012 updates are summarised at this link on their website:

On this page, in the third set of photographs, you will find a photo of Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din. When you click on it, you will reach the following link where his entry is given in full:

Please note that this entry, written by a University professor, contains a couple of inaccuracies. The publishers of the Dictionary had contacted me before publication and showed me the draft. I had made some corrections and suggstions, which the author incorporated, but one or two of the corrections I made have been missed. They have
promised to correct them in the next update.
