Once Gained Limelight as a Stone-pelter, This Girl Now is the Leader of J&K Football Team!


Afshan Ashiq, last year was in the headlines for her pictures of pelting stones hit the media. However, you would be surprised to know that the same girl is the captain of Jammu & Kashmir women football team and an inspiration for the thousands of young girls and boys of the state. What’s more inspiring is that she trained and built a team of girls because of her enthusiasm and love for the game of football.

In a state like Kashmir where neither are the situations nor the infrastructure to support the young sportspersons, Afshan has carved her way out of many difficulties. Apart from being the skipper, she also has the added responsibility of goalkeeper in the team.
