Union Minister Hussain pays tribute to Maulana Abul Kalam Azad on his birth anniversary
Union Minister Shahnawaz Hussain on Monday paid tributes
to freedom fighter and India’s first education minister Maulana Abul Kalam Azad
on his birth anniversary.
The tributes were paid by Hussain and Firoz Bakht, who is
the grandnephew of Azad at his Mazar (grave) near Jama Masjid.
“Azad’s message is relevant and important these days. Our
country was divided on August 14, 1947, and it got united two days ago. The way people
accepted the Supreme Court verdict in Ayodhya case and also behaved
responsibly, the soul of Azad would be happy for sure,” Hussain told.
Azad’s birth anniversary is celebrated as National
Education Day every year on November 11 in the country.
