From Scientist To Entrepreneur, These Indian Muslims Are The Pride Of Nation
SPONSORED

India has always been pampered by the talents of its citizens. The land grasping different religions gives immense opportunities to every member of its family. Every single profession has contributed to the growth and development of our country and the nation is proud of them.

This reminded me of the great Dhirubhai Ambani, who once said:

'Reliance's success is a reflection of India's capabilities, the talent of her people and the potential of her entrepreneurs, engineers, managers, and workers'

Indeed, there is no verge for the genius minds of our nation.

Talking about a particular religion, there have been many Indian Muslims who have flourished the country with their talent and hard work. 

Here is the list of some Indian Muslims who added millions of stars in the glory of India. 

1. Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
