Kochi: The ever encompassing life of former Indian President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, which is exemplar of a Karmayogi is now being derided by Islamic fundamentalists. The first of such comments appeared on social media platform Facebook in the group Right Thinkers, a forum where hard-line Islamists convene. It then became rampant as many rejoiced his death and spared no effort in denigrating him.

Dr Kalam’s nationalistic approach has not gone down too well with Islamic fundamentalists, who have accused him of being “part of Sangh Parivar and its agenda” and hence “not worthy of respect”.

From all the available data, the upholders of anti-social events like ‘kiss of love’ seem to be the very ones who have barged in, to ridicule Dr Kalam. Posts related to Dr Kalam visiting Mata Amritanandamayi and other Hindu Acharyas and exchanging ideas with them have been among the main points of denigration. Referring to Dr Kalam as Kafir, the post was made by Salim Ali. He went on to state that “it is forbidden to pray for his salvation”.

Statements like “Kalam lived all his life as a “Mushirk’ without knowing Islam”, “lover of war” etc along with condemnation of the departed soul for his reverence to Hindu seers and Gurus have been part of the contempt unleashed by Salim Ali. However, following widespread criticism, the user was forced to take off his posts.

The outbursts on Dr Kalam led to a tirade against the anti-nationalists, by those who respected the former President.
