Wednesday, November 08, 2017

The Center for Human Rights and Justice (CHRJ) at UMT organized a seminar on ‘Road to Courage: An Interactive Session with Khadijah Siddiqui’ with the collaboration of Office of Participant Affairs (OPA) and Gal’s Zone on November 7, 2017 at the UMT Campus. Khadijah Siddiqui is a young law student who was stabbed 23 times in 2016 by Shah Hussain, the son of a senior lawyer of Lahore High Court Bar.

Unlike many other women, who do not take stand for themselves and hesitate to fight a legal battle but Khadijah, a young girl from a middle-class family stood against injustice and fought the legal battle against Shah Hussain for over a year. Shah Hussain was sentenced to seven years imprisonment by a Judicial Magistrate at Cantonments Courts, Lahore. Khadijah Siddiqui shared the challenges she faced in getting justice in the seminar with the audience.
