“For a society in turmoil, to have the right to question and demand an answer is empowering.” Dr Muzaffar Bhat, 32, Dentist & RTI activist, Jammu & Kashmir
Juggling “80 calls a day”, visitors, workshops and paperwork, Dr Muzaffar Bhat finds little time to play doctor these days. He has rallied against timber smuggling, misuse of funds earmarked for model villages and a ration supplies racket, withstanding physical attacks and even a cooked-up criminal case for arson and looting. “With RTI, we can bring change. I would have earned more had I continued my practice full-time, but this is more fulfilling,” he says.
