A story of phenomenal humanity, perseverance and courage in the face of extreme injustice. It is not only an extraordinary memoir, it is a profoundly urgent and necessary book.
Framed As a Terrorist is the harrowing and heart-rending narrative of an ordinary young Indian man, from the by-lanes of Old Delhi, who was kidnapped by the police, falsely accused of being a terrorist, framed and kept in jail for almost fourteen years.
Released after a long and incredibly difficult legal battle, after surviving torture and solitary confinement, Mohammad Aamir Khan remains committed to the secular and democratic values that he grew up with. He refuses to be defeated, or to give up any of the dreams he has for himself, his family and the country that nearly destroyed him.
Mohammad Aamir Khan was born in 1977. In 1998 he was kidnapped, tortured and framed in eighteen bomb blast cases. It took him fourteen years to prove his innocence and now he is a free man. He has been widely interviewed by national and international media and has used the opportunity to speak eloquently on issues relating to human rights and democracy.Nandita Haksar is a very well-known human rights lawyer, campaigner, teacher and activist.
