DR MAHI TALAT SIDDIQUI - MUSLIM LADY WRITES RAMAYANA

A Muslim lady from Kanpur spreads the message of communal harmony

One Muslim lady from Kanpur is a perfect example for setting Intercommunity harmony. She has set a remarkable example to the society screaming out communal differences. While many are opposing the construction of the Ram Mandir, she has translated the text of Ramayana in Udru.
Dr Mahi Talat Siddiqui, a resident of Prem Nagar area, is giving out a perfect message that she wanted the Muslim community - along with the Hindus - to be aware of the goodness of Ramayana.
As she shares her experience of writing the epic tale, she says: “It took me more than one and a half years to translate it. I focused on the fact that the translation shouldn’t change the original meaning of the text”. The thoughts she tried to invoke during the translation is just wonderful to know. She holds a Master’s degree in Hindi Literature, and said that she will continue to work on maintaining mutual harmony through the pen.
