Why Madiha?

Madiha Ahmed is quietly waging a relentless war against a society that teaches us to shrug off the inconvenient truths, take things in the stride literally and carry on.

Her experience, while fighting injustice raises some very potent questions even as it teaches the dictums of non-compromise – of the need to stand one’s ground in on the face of adversaries that are all-powerful, to be empowered from within, to hold on to one’s convictions to give good a chance.

Hers is a story of triumph when all seemed to be lost, of our need to remain steadfast on the path of righteousness, even when confronted with odds that are seemingly impossible – a story of the triumph of the will.
