2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru’s son Ghalib Guru who had achieved distinction in the 12th board examination last year, has appealed PM Narendra Modi-led BJP government for a passport so that he can avail international medical scholarship.
Galib’s father Afzal Guru was convicted in a terrorist attack on Parliament in 2013. He had achieved distinction in the 12th board examination. In 10 Class board exam, Galib had secured 95 per cent marks.
“I appeal that I should get a passport. I also have an Aadhaar card. If I get a passport, I can avail international medical scholarship,” Galib.

In the morning of Thursday (January 11th) the results of the 12th examination of Jammu and Kashmir State Board of School Education (JKBOSE) were announced, in which Galib obtained 441 marks out of 500 marks. He scored 94 marks in Environment Science, 89 in Chemistry, 87 in Physics, 85 in Biology and 86 Marks in General English.
“I want to pursue Medical Education and want to become a doctor. It is the dream of my parents and family that I become a doctor and I will try to fulfil it,” Galib said as quoted by The Indian Express last year.
His father Afzal Guru also was a Medical student, but he had left his studies midway. When Afzal Guru was arrested in the case of terrorist attacks on Parliament on December 13, 2001, Galib's age was just two years. In 2013, Afzal Guru was hanged.
