Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad (1888-1958) was an Indian Muslim nationalist and member of congress from 1920. He famously supported inter-faith unity in India: "I am proud of being an Indian. I am part of the indivisible unity that is Indian nationality. I am indispensable to this noble edifice and without me this splendid structure is incomplete. I am an essential element, which has gone to build India. I can never surrender this claim. (1940)."
His tomb is situated on a raised podium in the gardens of the Jama Masjid in Old Delhi. The tomb is marked and covered by a vaulted concrete structure with four arches.
