They snatched my world, everything, says Nasir’s mother

Srinagar, September 18, 2016 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, after spending the entire night under open sky with the body of 11-year-old Nasir Shafi Qazi in the premises of a government school, thousands of people entered the small premises of a one-storey house of the slain boy at New Theed Harwan on Srinagar outskirts.

Minutes after Nasir, called Moomin at home, was laid to rest at nearby martyrs’ graveyard, people flooded the residence of the martyred boy, a class 7th student at Green Light Higher Secondary School Ishbar, Nishat.

“They snatched my world, everything. Let somebody search by son,” cries Nasir’s mother Jameela on the veranda of her house. Jameela is restless and rightly so as Indian forces snatched her youngest son. She has another son and a daughter. The eldest one had left studies after completing his graduation to support the family.

As the women, mostly neighbours, try to console Jameela sitting in a corner, Nasir’s sister makes everybody cry. “Who will take your parents on Hajj now? You had promised us you will take mummy and papa on Haj,” she screams as wails grow louder in the room. Jameela goes closer to her daughter and tells her not to worry. “Your brother has gone to offer prayers at Darul Uloom, he will come back soon. I will bring him back, he will fulfil his promise of taking his parents on Hajj,” she says and falls unconscious.

The slain youth’s father Muhammad Shafi Qazi says he drives a vehicle of a private hotel and wanted his youngest son to become a doctor.
