Afzal Guru’s Son Passes Class 10 Exams With 95 Percent Score

Ghalib Guru, Afzal Guru’s son, has scored an impressive 95 percent marks in the 10th standard examinations conducted by the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Examination.

Ghalib secured 474 marks out of 500, according to the results declared on Sunday, January 10. He has secured ‘A1’ grade in all five subjects. Ghalib’s performance in the examinations became a talking point on the social media with separatists lauding the boy “for excelling despite hardships”.

Afzal Guru was hanged to death on February 9, 2013, following his conviction in the 2001 Parliament attack case. The topper was a boy from Awantipora in Pulwama district.

Afzal Guru’s wife, Tabasum Guru, was unavailable for comment, but had earlier told Hindustan Times that all she wanted was a “normal and peaceful life” for her family.

We are a normal family. I want my son to lead a normal life. We have nothing to do with politics

In a 2013 interview to Kashmiri news outlet Kashmir Monitor, Ghalib had said that he wanted to be a doctor.

Papa knew that I want to become a doctor and would always tell me to work hard. He used to repeat this whenever I visited him in jail. When I visited him in August, papa gifted me a copy of the Koran and a book on science, which I have preserved.
