On that day, at the press conference held at Press Club of India, Delhi Bilkis Banu had shared a huge dream of hers. She dreams that one day, her little girl Hazra Yaqub would, as a lawyer, champion the cause of those who have been denied justice.
Today was the first step towards the realisation of this dream. Students Islamic Organisation of India has pledged to support Hazra till she completes her legal studies. We will keep alive the reminders of the biggest genocide India has witnessed.
SIO salutes Bilkis Banu for her unwavering commitment of more than 15 years. SIO National Secretary Thoufeeq Madikeri has handed over to Bilkis a memento and the first installment towards the educational scholarship of young Hazra Yakub.
