Abdul Kalam, asociado con el programa de misiles de la India, capaces de transportar cabezas nucleares a 2.500 kilómetros de distancia, y que formó parte del equipo que hizo posible los ensayos nucleares de 1998, asumirá formalmente la Presidencia el próximo día 25 y será el tercer presidente musulmán que ha tenido el país.
Aunque Abdul Kalam contó con el respaldo de la mayoría de los parlamentarios, su candidatura por parte del Gobierno ha estado asociada a los disturbios entre hindúes y musulmanes que sacudieron en marzo el estado occidental de Gujarat y que causaron unos 900 muertos, casi todos musulmanes, según datos oficiales.
