Ghalib is the son of Muhammad Afzal Guru, who was hanged on February 9, 2013, at Tihar Jail Delhi. He was convicted in Parliament attack case, though his family had strongly refuted the allegations against him and pleaded his innocence.

Ghalib looked delighted over his success in recently declared class 10th result and was busy in receiving greetings from his friends, relatives and well wishers here at maternal grandparents house, at Azad Gunj here in north Kashmir.

"I am delighted and after experiencing first success in life I am hopeful I will fulfill the desire of my late father Inshallah" said Ghalib.

Tabasum, mother of Ghalib, while sharing her joy said that had her husband been alive, even if in jail, the joy could have been much more meaningful.

"Whenever I visited him (late Afzal Guru) at Tihar Jail, Ghalib used to accompany me. His father’s main concern was to see his son achieve success, both in academics and Islamic studies," said Tabasum

"I yearn, had Afzal been alive, even if in jail, witnessing his son’s achievement and communicating that Ghalib has experienced first success in life, the experience of happiness would have been extremely high" Tabasum said. 

Tabasum has played an important role in grooming Ghalib and believes that the graph of success for Ghalib would have been much high had he worked hard. "He worked hard only in last three months before his exams. I am sure had he studied constantly, he would have been in top five" said Tabasum.

While feeling satisfied with his achievement, Tabasum said that with every inch of his growth, Ghalib is becoming more sensitive and is realizing that he has to fulfill the dream of his father and make his mother proud.

"Like his father, I want to see my son excelling in his studies. I still remember his father’s wish to see his son become a great Islamic scholar and a wonderful doctor so that he is able to serve his nation" said Tabasum.
