Udhampur: 30 nOV 2018
A 23 old human rights activist, Manjot Singh Kohli, from udhampur, a region which is known for Muslim persecution in 1947, has set an example of communal harmony by her decision to donate her kidney to her friend, Samreena, who is a Muslim.
“I never wanted to put it on social media, since it was my personal decision to save my best friend’s life by donating her my kidney. Its been 4 months that we are struggling with the legal and medical procedures in SKIMS Soura” said Manjot on her social media profile.
“Now that my family is not giving consent for it but her life is more important than anything else for me right now… I am announcing it publicly that no one is forcing me to do anything, its my personal choice to save Samreen’s life. I am 23 years old ( A major) and I have all the rights to make decisions. So doesn’t matter what religion she belongs to, For me she is a human first and I will go till any extend to help her. Legal issues will be taken care of by our lawyer” she added further.
The young and dynamic Manjot is a motivational speaker and a social activist. She is known for speaking about human rights abuse in J&K.
Taking such a great step at such a young age is unparalleled. We at Pir Panjal Post wish Manjot all the best for all her future endeavours. We want to let her know that you’re an inspiration to many across the globe.
