Fatima Nafees, mother of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad, on Wednesday said the solidarity she has received from everyone — Hindus, Muslims, people affiliated to political parties as well as students — was her biggest strength in continuing the battle to find her son.

“Keep standing with me till we find Najeeb. What they’ve done to my son is unjust, and it’s important to stand with injustice. Hindu, Muslim, party wale, sab mere saath hain. Main bohot khush hoon. You all are my strength, and my biggest strength are the students of JNU who have been standing with me from the start,” Nafees told the crowd that had gathered for a march to Parliament, called by Najeeb’s family, meant to put pressure on the Delhi Police and the Centre to find him.

During the march, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, SP MP from Badaun Dharmendra Yadav, and Rajya Sabha MP Ali Anwar from the JD(U) hit out at the BJP government for “deliberately” not finding Najeeb.

Nafees had given a call for a march from Mandi House to Parliament Street, which was attended by over 1,000 people, holding flags and banners.

“The central government has been unsuccessful in finding Najeeb. If the ABVP students are taken into police custody and interrogated, Najeeb’s whereabouts will surely become clear,” Owaisi said at the march.
