Anantnag: 17-year-old Tabia Iqbal, a specially-abled girl, qualified class 10th exam with 452 out of 500 marks and is earning appreciation for braving all odds.
Tabia Iqbal from Shangus, Nowgam area of Anantnag, was born with a condition that resulted in her needing the support of a wheelchair.
Although her family was supportive at every stage, she had to fight “taboo and prejudices prevailing in the society”.
Speaking in sign-language explained by her mother Muneera Akhtar, Tabia said: “I have not attended any school since last seven years because I am suffering from arthritic condition and I am on a wheel chair.”
Tabia while giving a message to the young generation of Kashmir, said that “everyone must chase their dreams with positive intentions in their mind, which will help them a lot.”
Her father Peer Mohammad Iqbal said, she never attended school since class 3rd and since then a teacher was coming at her residence to teach her, adding that for the treatment of girl “we shifted her in many hospitals but all goes in vain.”
He thanked Principal of the local private school namely Fayaz Ahmad for helping his daughter in studies.
