Malik was elected Sept. 1 to serve a one-year term as chairman of the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) for Greater Cincinnati. He is the first Muslim to preside over the organization in its 59-year history. Robert Harrod, the executive director of NCCJ, said the election of Malik is significant and that it "represents NCCJ's quest to be more inclusive of different religious communities."
