Hakk se maange: AZAADI!

At the end of 2013, the Muslim Leadership group in Lucknow got together to reflect on the kinds of freedoms they wanted in their lives. Along with the freedoms, they also mentioned the extent to which they wanted the freedom, thereby performing a check on themselves while looking at the context they come from. The list of freedoms they wished for are given below:
