Baramulla/Tral: The son of Afzal Guru, Galib secured a distinction in the twelth class while as Naveed Muzzafar, brother of slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Burhan wani, got a first division in the twelth class for which results were announced on Thursday.
A student of SRM Welkin School Sopore, Galib scored 441 marks out of the total 500 in the class 12th results
In his matriculation exam, Galib secured 19th position in the Kashmir division and he said he was working hard to fulfill the wishes of his parents including his mother and late father.
Galib is the lone son of late Mohammad Afzal Guroo, who was hanged secretly by congress led government before the 2014 elections on February 09, 2013 at Tihar Jail Delhi. He was later secretly buried in the premises of the jail. Guroo was convicted in the parliament attack case.
To this date, the family and the pro-freedom groups are demanding his mortal remains but the Indian government has time and again denied it.
As soon the results of class 12th were announced, a large number of internet users shared Galib’s result on the social media which became viral.
Thereafter, relatives and friends of his Afzal Guroo rushed to meet Galib and showered flowers on him at Gulnar Park, Baramulla where he is living with his mother Tabasum.
The visibly happy mother, Tabasum, told Kashmir Reader that Afzal always wanted to see Galib becoming an Islamic Scholar.
“The aim of his father was to see Galib a doctor and an Islamic scholar and I believe he (Galib) will full fill the dream of his father,” Tabasum said.
“In Tihar Jail when my husband (Afzal) was alive, Galib accompanied me. He told me that he wanted to see Galib as a doctor and an Islamic scholar. I am sure he will face all the challenges and will become a doctor He is preparing for the MBBS”.
Galib, who was busy on phone receiving greeting calls from his friends and relatives, said his dream was to become Islamic studies scholar only to serve the people.
He said right now I am preparing for NEET which is scheduled to be held on May 07 this year.
On the other hand in South Kashmir’s Tral area, despite facing the trauma of losing two of his brothers, slain militant Burhan Muzzafar Wani’s brother, Naveed Muzzafer Wani has passed the 12th class exams with 387 marks out of 500.
Naveed told Kashmir Reader that his exam result was a tribute to his slain brothers and his first assignment would be to pay homage to the graveyards of his brothers.
“Since I am playing cricket at Dadsura I will be visiting the graveyard of my brothers sooner the cricket match ends,” Naved said.
He said that the whole family was happy and his joy too knew no bounds.
Naveed told Kashmir Reader that loss of two brothers could be understandable and similarly the mental disturbance caused by it.
“It was the hard work and management of emotional stress that has led me to attain success,” he said, adding that he did not go for tuitions for the whole year except getting guidance from a family friend.
Naveed’s father Muzzar Wani while expressing happiness told Kashmir Reader that he was thankful to Almighty Allah who has granted success to his son and has once again brought jovial mood in the family.
He, however, said that the family was yet to understand their surveillance by security forces who frequently come to their family and ask for Naveed.
“I do not understand what the visits to my family convey to me and my family although the period of militancy from my family was over,” he said, adding that he wants his son to groom and flourish in his life.
Burhan was the poster boy of militancy who is said to have revived militancy through social networking sites and was killed on July 2016.
Since then the valley has seen an era of deceptive peace and has turned entire south Kashmir into a militant hot bed.
