Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC http://www.iamc.com), an advocacy group dedicated to safeguard India’s pluralist and tolerant ethos, mourns the passing of renowned civil rights activist K.G. Kannabiran in Hyderabad, India.
Mr. Kannabiran was one of the greatest pioneers in India’s Civil Liberties Movement. With his stalwart personality, he never hesitated to speak for India’s oppressed minorities.
“Throughout his remarkable and amazing life, Mr. Kannabiran used his excellent education, training, and dynamic skills for the protection of the weak, and exploited sections of the Indian populace. It is actually people like him who keep the idea of India alive.” said Rasheed Ahmed, president IAMC.
IAMC extends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Kannabiran.
Indian American Muslim Council (formerly Indian Muslim Council-USA) is the largest advocacy organization of Indian Muslims in the United States with 10 chapters across the nation. For more information please visit our new website at http://www.iamc.com.
