A tribute to the life and work of the late Ahsan Jafri,
a former Member of Parliament, a poet, and a staunch advocate for peace and communal harmony in Gujarat and India.

On February 28, 2002, Jafri along with 150 other people
who were seeking refuge in his home, including women
and children, were attacked and burnt alive by a mob in
Ahmedabad despite countless phone calls to the police
and officials of the Gujarat State Govt.
