Malegaon: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will release a commemorative stamp in honour of late Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leader Panakkad Syed Mohammedali Shihab Thangal in New Delhi on Monday.
"The commemorative stamp would be released by the prime minister at a function at his residence. Thangal's brother and president of the party's Kerala unit Syed Hyderali Shihab Thangal, union ministers, ministers from Kerala, MPs and senior leaders of the party will attend the function,", news agency IANS quoted IUML president and Union Minister of State for Railways E. Ahamed as saying.
Panakkad Syed Mohammedali Shihab Thangal who was veteran Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leader had died on August, 1 in 2009. Panakkad Thangal had dominated the Kerala politics for over three decades. For several decades he had been the fulcrum on which the IUML, the second most powerful ally of the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) in Kerala, stood steady.
Thangal, born May 4, 1936, was the eldest son of Panakkad Pookoya Thangal. After his schooling in Calicut, he went for higher studies on Islam in Tirur.
In 1958, he went to Egypt for further studies and obtained a higher degree from Al Azhar University in 1961. He continued his studies in Cairo University and pursued a doctorate in Arabic literature in 1966.
On the death of his father in 1975, he took over as president of the Kerala state committee of IUML, a post he held till his death.
After the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1992, Thangal made a passionate plea to all the Muslims in the state to remain calm.
