New Delhi: Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Monday released a commemorative stamp in honour of late Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) leader Syed Mohammed Ali Shihab Thangal here Monday.

On the occasion, Dr Singh said, "I am very happy to release this stamp in commemoration of the life and work of Mohammed Ali Shihab Thangal on his first death anniversary.

"Thangal was a great son of Kerala. He was an influential spiritual leader and a widely respected politician. As a political leader he contributed to the first successful experiment of coalition politics in India in the form of the Congress - IUML combine," he added.

Dr Singh further said Thangal's genius was versatile. Apart from having a deep knowledge of Arabic Linguistics, he was known for his scholarship of the Sufi traditions, which represent the best of our composite culture.

"Though a great religious leader, he will long be remembered as the voice of democratic secular principles and a practitioner of secular solidarity. During the difficult period of country-wide communal unrest in 1992, his appeal for peace worked wonders in Kerala," he added.

"The postage stamp that I have just released is a small token of our love and respect for a towering personality of our times," he said.
