Mother Teresa Memorial International Award

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is the first Malaysian to receive the Mother Teresa Memorial International Award for Social Justice.
The award was presented during a ceremony at Taj President Hotel in Mumbai, India, yesterday.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's son, Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir received the award on behalf of his father, who is recuperating from a mild heart attack. The award was given in recognition of Dr Mahathir’s efforts in pushing through national unity in a multiracial and multireligious country. During his tenure as the Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir had ensured that economic development and progress was enjoyed by all, regardless of their ethnic and religious backgrounds. The award, given by the Harmony Foundation, was to honour men and women of integrity.
