While the Valley witnessed a wide spread turbulence over the death of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, another Wani has emerged from Kashmir. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday met Nabeel Ahmad Wani, a young man from Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir who has topped the examination for assistant commandant in Border Security Forces (BSF). Tweeting a picture of his, Singh said that his success story will inspire many girls and boys of the Valley and shows that J&K youth has a lot of potential.
Nabeel completed his B.Tech in 2012 from Pathankot, prior to which he did his senior secondary education from NITL Higher Secondary School in Udhampur. While studying, Nabeel would earn money by teaching other kids and would send funds to his sister studying engineering in Chandigarh. He later won a government minority scholarship for higher education. Wani first sat for the BSF assistant commandant test in 2013, however, was unable to clear it back then.
He lost his father, Rafiq Ahmad, a school teacher two years ago. Talking about the success of her son, Hanifa Begum said that she was very happy and was sure that he will work with honesty and dedication and will bring laurels to the country.
Wani who is currently serving as a junior engineer in Udhampur, said it was his dream to join the defense forces and serve the country which has now been fulfilled. “The more we get education the better and more jobs we will get. We cannot get education by taking to stones but by holding a pen,” Wani said.
“I will urge you to take the right path; do something for your country and your motherland so that your country and motherland are recognized all over world. You all should follow your dreams and fulfill the aim of your life, but don’t take any wrong path for that. Taking a wrong path is easier, but it’s difficult to follow a right path. But, at the end, only those people are successful who take the right path,” Wani said.
