Freedom Fighter Women

Kulsum Sayani, Great Indian Social activist and Freedom Fighter.

In a letter dated June 16, 1945, Gandhiji addressed Sayani as Beti Kulsum and wrote: “I like the mission of Rahber to unite Hindi and Urdu. May it succeed.” Rahber was now being read by hundreds of political prisoners lodged in jails across the country. Anyone interested in learning Gandhiji’s Hindustani picked up Rahber. Along with her work of administrating women literacy classes in Mumbai, Sayani immersed herself in bringing out Rahber.
