The man who testified against the horrific rapes of women in Naroda Patiya riots in 2002 and endlessly fought for justice, Nazir Khan Pathan joined the Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday along with 200 members.
Nazir Khan Pathan, popularly known as ‘Master’ because he runs a small school inside Patiya, said he wanted to to join AAP since the time Arvind Kejriwal formed the party and got an opportunity when the party expanded its reach in Gujarat.
Nazir, a key witness in the Naroda Patiya massacre, now has a new battle on his hands, this time with the support of a political party.

Dressed in his usual shirt and trousers, and sitting in a small room of his school in Naroda Patiya, Nazir said, “Our fight has been long and painful. We have always been the suppressed voice.
Now, we have decided to be independent and fight for our basic right to make Naroda Patiya get an equal share in the development of Ahmedabad”.
After Nazir joined AAP, around 200 others filled forms and joined the party in the last two days.
Gujarat Convenor of AAP, Sukhdev Patel, said, “We welcome the victims of riots open heartedly. I have not met them yet, but will do so soon.”
