Youngest nation builder
At an age when most youngsters are still figuring out what to do with their lives, the young and purposeful Abdulrazaq Habibkhan Pathan is busy emerging as one of the youngest nation builders the country has ever seen.
Recently voted among the ‘Top 10 Inspiring Leaders of 2022’ in a list curated by the Global brand research and consulting firm Heylin Spark, Abdulrazaq is a multi award-winning entrepreneur and humanitarian.
Based out of the state of Gujarat in India, where he is well known as a promising entrepreneur and philanthropist, Abdulrazaq’s life motto is to provide affordable yet quality education and food to poor children. In keeping with his motto, he has undertaken extensive social work for the upliftment of children and women in economically weak and socially backwards areas.
As a modern muslim, his progressive work in the fields of education and healthcare is especially appreciated around the state. His calm focus not only impresses his detractors, but also helps foster a spirit of communal harmony.
A dedicated and determined lad, he rose to the occasion when people were stuck at home without help during the pandemic lockdown. A born leader, he was able to mobilise teams and resources at the shortest notice. For close to two years, he fought against all odds to help people and prevent suffering through starvation.
A true messenger of nation building, community welfare, as well as peace and unity, Abdulrazaq’s contribution has been acknowledged nationally as well as internationally. This year itself has seen him receive 3 prestigious honours for his many noble endeavours:
- Rajiv Gandhi Global Excellence Award as Youth Achiever on 21 May 2022 in Delhi by Ex-Home Minister Dr. Shakeel Ahmed, Government of India.
- Global Entrepreneur Award at the 14th Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Awards 2022 held at the Governor’s House of Maharashtra, and presented by the respected Governor of Maharashtra Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari himself.
- The Delhi Municipal Corporation on behalf of Delhi’s government recognized his sincere efforts and honoured him as a promoter and presenter of ground zero education. This mark of recognition was presented by Delhi’s assembly speaker Ram Nivas Goel with Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh and Imran Hussain on 16 July 2022.
Currently, Abdulrazaq serves as a Peace Ambassador for the World Human Rights United Nations and the Gujarat State President of PARWAZ Media.
Few months back, he received one of his biggest international recognitions when he was invited to delegate the Best Diplomats United Nations Simulation Conference organised in Dubai between 16-19 September 2022.
All those who know him say Abdulrazaq is a focussed go-getter. The motivation probably comes from his love for sports. But the discipline certainly stems from being a successful young entrepreneur.
For Abdulrazaq is also the CMD of Gujarat based Haya Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. and Millennium Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd. The companies are into real estate and construction, and have projects all over the state. With Abdulrazaq at the helm, they hope to make their national footprint soon.
Which says much about Abdulrazaq’s capable work. It is no mean feat to be a successful entrepreneur as well as a hard-working humanitarian all at once. Yet, Abdulrazaq delivers day in and day out. As an emerging youth leader, he is a torch bearer for the younger generation. Not only does he evoke faith and pride, but also the feeling that our future is in the right hands.
