This father travels 12 km daily to take daughters to school; netizens hail him as ‘real hero’

There is nothing more pure & unconditional like father-daughter love.  Fathers have always been the daughter’s first hero and this father from Afghanistan has proved this saying. 

Mia Khan, a resident of Sharana in Afghanistan is winning the internet and the reason behind this will make your eyes teary. 

 The Swedish Committee for Afghanistan, an NGO that works in the region, shared a heartwarming story of Mia Khan who travels  12 kilometers on a motorbike daily to get his daughters to school. That’s not the end. He waits outside the school for 4hrs till his daughter’s class ends. 

“I am illiterate, and I live on daily wage, but my daughters’ education is very valuable to me because there is no female doctor in our area,” he says. “It is my greatest desire to educate my daughters like my sons”.

The Facebook post has gone viral and people are appreciating the father for his gesture. 


One of his daughters, Rozi, says: “I am so happy that I study, I am in grade six this year. My dad or brother brings us on a motorcycle every day to the school and when we leave, he brings us home again.”

People on social media couldn’t stop themselves from praising Mia Khan and hailed him as a hero. 

Salute to this father for his dedication!
