‘Haider’ and ‘Chhichhore’ award-winning actress Shraddha Kapoor will reportedly play the role of braveheart Rukhsana Kausar from Jammu and Kashmir in an upcoming film.
In 2009, Rukhsana Kausar, who is from Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district, was in her 20s when she killed Lashkar terrorist Abu Osama with an ax and forced her accomplices to flee by firing after snatching a rifle from him done.
Rukhsana Kausar was with her mother and brother when the incident happened.
The terrorists had stormed their house and started beating Rukhsana’s family members. She was hiding under the bed at the time of the attack. Gathering courage, she came out of her hiding place and retaliated.
The act of bravery made him a real life hero. People across the country saluted his courage. She became a role model for many.
Rukhsana was awarded the Kirti Chakra and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi Also spoke openly about his bravery.
Today, Rukhsana is a police constable, married to a police officer, and a mother of three daughters.
In an interview, he said that he is feeling good that a film is being made to show his bravery. “It required bravery and courage to kill a terrorist with an axe,” she said.
Reminiscing that night, Rukhsana said that the terrorists barged into their house and started beating her father without any reason.
“They beat up my father. When the mother tried to intervene, she was also beaten up. Blood started coming out of his mouth, my brother ran to help, but they beat him too. He fell down and started crying,” said Rukhsana.
“They came looking for me in another room, but they could not find me because I was hiding under a cot. After some time I thought that if they killed three members of my family then there is no reason for me to live. I slowly came out and found an ax lying there, I used it to neutralize Osama.’
He said that he was sitting with his back to her when she was striking him with the axe.
Rukhsana said that earlier she was given security, but eventually she left it. She said that her husband is a brave man and is the source of her strength.
“I carry a weapon with me 24 hours a day, but now that a film is being made on me, I will get more threats. I request SSP and DIG to provide security to me. Rukhsana Said.
He said that his message to the women of Jammu and Kashmir is that they should stick to their resolve.
“We are not weak. The daughters of Jammu and Kashmir are very brave.
“My daughter who is 11 tells me she wants to do similar acts of bravery. My daughters tell me they are all Rukhsana.
