A Letter from Nishrin Jafri Hussain to Teesta Setalvad

Zakia Jafri

Dear Teesta,

Here is a message from Ammi (Zakiya Naseem Jafri) for you. You and your determination to bring the guilty to justice has given strength and peace to her and other victim’s lives. Every day she has been praying for your safety and victory.

In her words, “mera roam roam tumhare liye dua karta hai, mera dil jaanta hai tumhara har kadam Gujarat ke mazloomo ki madad me juda hai”, “meri duaaen tumhare saath hai, hamara dukh, hamare saath jo beeta hai, wo tumhare se behter koi nahi jaanta, hame pura yakin hai tumhe kaamyabi jaroor meligi, hindustaan ke log tumhare saath hai”

“Upperwale ke ghar der hai andher nahin hai”.

Log hansti hui aankhon pay yaqeen rakhte hain,
Meray aansu mere jazbat koi kya jane,
Ek tu hai jisay maloom hein sari baatein,
Shab-e-Hijran mere haalat koi kya jane.

With lots of Love.
Zakiya Naseem Jafri

  1. Words fail to congratulate Teesta for her determined fight to get justice for the victims of genocide perpetrated by right wing communal hordes. I stand with her along with millions of right thinking Indians. Dead sure to win sooner than later.

  2. Together with countless others, I look forward to the day when truth will be established on the 2002-riots and the victims will find justice.
