Shaheen Bagh dadi: 94-year-old ailing Asma’s grandson talks about her health
Asma Khatoon, 94, who was the face of Shaheen Bagh’s sit-in against CAA and NRC months ago, has been discharged from a Delhi-based hospital where she was undergoing treatment after contracting dengue, according to her grandson Anisur Rahman.
She is now in her house in Okhla and her condition has improved a lot with her platelet count bouncing back to normal, said Rahman, adding that she was getting treatment at AIIMs and family members were deeply worried after her platelet rate has gone down to 20 thousands.
“She is unwell and has stopped eating food for the last two days, please pray for her quick recovery,” wrote Rahman on his timeline a few days ago.
Also, he shared a photo of her undergoing treatment.
Asma Khatoon is originally from Sitamarhi in Bihar and her husband Maulana Abdul Hasan died nine years ago, according to a media report. She had come to Delhi to visit her granddaughter in December but become part of the peaceful sit-in, said the report.
Asma Khatoon has 8 children, including 4 sons and 4 daughters with two sons residing in Delhi and her one grandson also resides in Jamia Nagar with his family.
