Unlike many other women, who do not take stand for themselves and hesitate to fight a legal battle but Khadijah, a young girl from a middle-class family stood against injustice and fought the legal battle against Shah Hussain for over a year. Shah Hussain was sentenced to seven years imprisonment by a Judicial Magistrate at Cantonments Courts, Lahore. Khadijah Siddiqui shared with the audience the challenges she faced in getting justice in her talk given at the seminar.
