Gujarat riots: Real hero Latifa a driving force behind communal harmony

Mar 13, 2013 09:20 AM IST India India

Ahmedabad: CNN-IBN Real Hero Latifa Giteli, a housewife from Gujarat, is doing her bit to transform lives post 2002 Godhra riots. The 2002 Godhra carnage transformed Latifa Giteli from a housewife to the driving force behind communal harmony.

"After the 2002 carnage, I went to a madarsa to see my relatives, but could not find them there. But I found kids whose parents were nowhere to be found. They held my dupatta and asked for water," Latifa said.

Today, Latifa provides both Hindu and Muslim women vocational training and also helps them get jobs. Latifa's faced her own set of challenges when in 2004 her husband was wrongly accused in a bomb case.

The court later found her husband not guilty and acquitted him. Latifa says her biggest achievement is the school she runs for poor children, educating them for a nominal amount.
