The girl who did not give up is now officially a barrister.

Khadija Siddiqi, who was stabbed 23 times in broad daylight in Lahore by her class fellow Shah Hussain, broke all barriers when she consistently fought her case and emerged successful in proving the culprit guilty.

And now Khadija has another feather in her cap. She just completed her bar degree from the City Law School of London with exceptional grades.


Though Khadija began her fight for justice alone, her campaign gained momentum and media coverage when civil society and activists like Hassan Niazi and Jibran Nasir came forward to support her.

Khadija completed her Law degree from the Blackstone School of Law (University of London) and went to study in the UK in September 2018. On 22nd January 2019 whilst sitting for her bar exams, she returned to Pakistan for her final hearing in the Supreme Court, which gave the decision in her favour.
