Hindi Wikipedia Tutorial[edit]

Participation in Monuments of Spain Challenge[edit]

  • Good to find my name on a Spanish blog as result of my participation in the editathon in 2014!!

Participation in May 2015 Translation Rally[edit]


I started the Hindi Wikipedia Editathon "Lilavati's Daughters" or "Indian Women Scientists" which later transformed into "Women Achievers of India" editathon. The project also had an impact on Punjabi Wikipedia.

My Interviews & Media Coverage[edit]

Interviewed about Hindi and Urdu Wikipedia(s)[edit]


  • On advocating internet freedom, Muzammil writes: "Although I am all for it, I gave it a lower priority because of the political overtone and the fear that pushing it too much may jeopardize core Wikipedia objectives in some geographic locations."
  • On forbidding paid editing, Muzammil writes: "we should stop paid editing for promotion or those edits which forward some agenda – ideological or political." James: "The WMF has forbidden non-disclosed paid editing. It should now help enforce this. Not all types of paid editing should be banned." He also points to the relevance of engineering to improve editor experience to attracting and retaining female editors and those in the global south.
