Guess who is missing

Praful Bidwai has an article on Sania Mirza which he then converts that to a roll call of achievers who are Muslims. After some Hindu nationalist and middle class pseudo-liberal bashing, he lists all the Muslims who have made it in India. These include the Khans of Bollywood, Shabana Azmi, Tabu, Saif Ali Khan, Saeed Mirza, Zayed Khan, Javed Akhtar, Mohammed Azharuddin, Irfan Pathan, Mohammed Kaif, Zaheer Khan etc. But one very important name is missing from the list, one person whom most of us see as a great Indian – the Indian President Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam.

I am sure Mr. Bidwai accidently missed this name and it has nothing to do with the fact that Abdul Kalam was involved with India’s nuclear weapons, missiles and was nominated by NDA Administration to the position of the President of India.
