Congratulations to Mr. Kavikko Abdul Rahman

It is heartening to know that a reputed Tamil poet Mr. Kavikko Abdur Rahman has been elected unanimously as Chairman of the Tamil Nadu Wakf Board which I think will be welcomed by all. It is perhaps for the first time that a literary figure who has a good Islamic knowledge and an urge for community services has become the head of the board. We extend our hearty congratulations to him. The hon'ble Chief Minister Mr. M. Karunanidhi who is responsible for this deserves our whole-hearted thanks.

Mr. Rahman's remarks that he would endeavour to work for the betterment of the Muslim community by establishing a university which will provide free education to all, besides inaugurating industrial training institutes and elementary schools are most welcome. One hopes that the board will be in the limelight doing good works for the educational and economic upliftment of the community. As assured by him, the chief khazi Mr. Salahuddin Ayub, a great Islamic scholar, should be suitably accommodated in the wakf board in a better position. This is the urgent need of the hour.

V.M. Khaleelur Rahman
