Every year BBC reveals the list of 100 inspirational and innovative women. However, the list for 2017 has brought a happy news for Nawazuddin Siddiqui as his mother Mehroonisa Siddiqui is also in this list. The women in BBC’s list are those who tackle some of the biggest problems women in general face around the world.
Nawazuddin shared his happiness with a picture with his mother and wrote, “The woman who showed courage against all odds inspite of being in a conservative Family from a small village – here she is now – My Mother #100MostInfluentialWomenInTheWorld… BBC.” 65 years old Mehroonisa Siddiqui is a homemaker and she believes that ‘it is never too late to learn’.
Other Indians in BBC’s 100 Most Influential Women 2017 list are Mithali Raj, Dr. Urvashi Sahni, Priyanka Roy and Nitya Thummalachetty among others. Pakistani singer Momina Mustehsan is also in the list.
