Prime Minister Narendra Modi was conferred with Afghanistan’s highest civilian honour, the Amir Amanullah Khan Award. He was conferred with the award by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, after the two leaders jointly inaugurated the Afghan-India Friendship Dam, earlier known as Salma Dam, that was rebuilt with the co-operation of India. The dam’s total cost is around Rs. 1,700 crores. Mr. Modi had arrived there as a part of his five-nation tour.
The Amir Amanullah Khan medal is the highest civilian honor of Afghanistan. The award is named after the Afghan national hero, Amanullah Khan (Ghazi), who championed the cause of Afghanistan’s freedom. He was the ruler of the Emirate of Afghanistan from 1919-1929 who led Afghanistan to independence.This award was instituted by the Afghanistan government in 2006.
