Rameswaram: It may sound shocking and surprising but it's true!

An Islamic outfit has opposed the installation of former president of India  Dr APJ Abdul Kalam's statue at his burial site at Pei Karumbu near Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu.

The Ramanathapuram District Jamaathul Ulama Council says that installation of statue is against the Muslim personal law (shariat), according to a report in The Hindu.

"Islam is against ‘idol’ worship and individual eulogy, "A Valiyulla Noori, president of the council, said.

"The best way to honour Dr Kalam would be to follow his ideals and realise his vision for a stronger and developed India," he added.
