Guru’s Son Accuses National Daily Of Misquoting Him

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Srinagar,  March 5 : Afzal Guru’s son has accused a national daily of intentionally misquoting him on wanting to become a “proud Indian citizen.”

“They have quoted as me saying that I will be a proud Indian citizen when I get my passport. All I said was that I was happy to have an Aadhar card and a passport will help me pursue higher education abroad,” Guru’s son Ghalib told news agency, referring to a Times of India (ToI) report that quoted him as saying that he “will be a proud Indian citizen when I get my passport.”

A video  accompanying the ToI story shows a reporter asking Ghalib if he was “proud of the fact that you own a Government of India card?”

Ghalib replies, “At least I have one card. Now I want the passport in order to go to foreign countries to pursue my education.” He also says he has a scholarship offer from Turkey. 

The reporter then asks him again if he was “happy” to have an Aadhar card, to which Ghalib replies,” Yes, I am happy.”

Guru’s wife Tabassum said one of the reasons she doesn’t allow Indian media to speak to her son is because “they often misquote us.”

“My father-in-law had let them in as one of the reporters said she was a Kashmiri Pandit. It’s sad they still misquoted Ghalib for their story,” she said.(GNS)
