PREMIUM The government has awarded national hero status to seven figures for their contribution to the nation, including a Catholic politician and two renowned Muslim thinkers who were once jailed by former president Sukarno.

The award ceremony was hosted by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the State Palace on Tuesday, two days before the commemoration of National Heroes Day on Thursday.
