Srinagar: The sadistic, malicious injury inflicted on a 5-year-old boy by a CRPF soldier has convinced many in the SMHS hospital, where the child is admitted, that India has adopted the “Israeli policy” of “systematic genocide” and “disabling of every Kashmiri”.

The little boy, Nasir, occupies Bed number 26 at SMHS hospital. Every now and then he wakes up terrified and seems to be trying to free himself from shackles. Finally he ends up clinging to his father.
“Whenever he wakes up, he is panic stricken. He yells ‘army ha aayi, army ha aayi! Yim ha layan mea! (Army has come, army has come, to beat me),” says his father Mohammad Altaf, a resident of Kokernag.
Nasir Ahmad, five years old, was returning home with his father and grandmother from Anantnag, where they had gone to buy medicines for the child’s eye-infection and for the ailing grandmother. Altaf said that on their way back they came across protests taking place at Sherpora. Altaf sought shelter for his mother, and while he looked for it he told his son to stay put in an alley. “I rushed my old mother to a relatively safer place and asked Nasir to sit in one place until I return. I feared he might be hurt while I was moving around with my mother in that chaos,” Altaf said.
When he returned, he couldn’t believe his eyes. His son was lying on the ground and rubbing his eyes. He was sobbing in pain. “He was literally biting the dust due to the pain. His eyes were burning like charcoal. There was blood all over his eye,” recalled Altaf.
Nasir was rushed to a nearby Islamabad hospital from where he was referred to SMHS. It was here that he revealed what had happened. “At the hospital he told the doctor that a CRPF man had first inserted sand into his eye, and then injected a needle into the eye. After that he slapped him. There were slap marks on his face,” Altaf said.
Altaf, 28, is a father of three children. He said he was worried about how he will face his wife, who does not know that her son has suffered an injury that can damage his eyesight. “I don’t know how I will face my wife as my 5-year-old son was absolutely all right when I left my village,” Altaf said, tears rolling down his face.
Altaf is also concerned about the eyesight of his child. “Doctors have already operated on his eye, and they are going to operate again, as he has shown no signs of improvement,” Altaf rued.
As Altaf was narrating the episode, people from the nearby beds and other sections had come to listen with growing horror. 34-year-old Shameema who was accompanying her pellet-injured brother, said that she had children as young as Nasir, and that seeing kids as young as five being targeted by government forces was beyond belief. “This is systematic genocide; they are targeting our children to finish our race,” she said.
A few men seconded her and called it a policy on the lines of Israel. “They are clearly employing the tactics of Israel, as this is what they do in Gaza: kill small children so that the entire race is finished,” said the group of men among which were volunteers working at the hospital.
“They are on a mission to disable every Kashmiri. It is clearly a ploy taken from Israel,” said an elderly man, Mohamad Amin.
Altaf said that many people at the hospital gave him solace and courage to not lose heart. “But you tell me, how can someone be strong when the apple of his eye is hurt? He is just five years of age. Who on earth hurts kids of his age?”
Nasir is the second 5-year-old kid has been at the receiving end of Indian brutality in the Burhan aftermath. Zohra, a 5-year-old girl of Qamarwari in Srinagar, was shot at with pellets by Indian forces, resulting in injuries to her body.

    I pray ALLAH to help innocent people in Kashmir

  7. Rocky   July 24, 2016 at 2:12 pm

    while I do not support what happened to this innocent child but remember how you drove hindus from the valley, raped them, slaughtered them, robbed them and made them refugees in their own country?

    It’s most barbaric and sadistic. Only a psychopath can do it. Damn him as much as we can but also must have a look beyond. Who after all is responsible for making them as such? Deployed in such hostile conditions, it may really be difficult to hold together and remain sane for a long time. The real culprit are the political bosses who seem to have little interest in dousing the fire as they have no personal stakes. Rather it serves them better to keep the pot boiling.

    The only thing Kashmiris should do under the circumstances is not let the memories of these atrocities die down in their hearts. Next time when you here somebody saying CRPF are humans too, just spit on his face.

    What’s the proof! We are not the judge, why would a person go to other person and insert a needle ; why that boy only ; why no one else ; this is just bullshit and who are we to decide that who is responsible for this. MAYBE the doctor who told this story is a supporter of Pakistan, maybe he inserted that needle so to make CRPF found guilty. We can’t make any decisions without any proof!!

    I was visiting in Kashmir in May and saw many beautiful children playing and thought to myself that these children need to grow up in a safe environment where they do not have to be watched by Indian army forces everywhere they go. I am so very sorry that this happened to your young son. I can only imagine the pain in a father’s heart. Allah will punish this evil man who pierced your son’s eye; be assured of that! I will be praying especially for you son; I have been praying for all of Kashmir! May Allah bless you and keep you and your family safe now and always. Kind regards, Cecile

    we are all in and pain and this kind tactics where children are not even spared by the Indian occupied forces is a brutal and shameful act and there are thousands of painful stories like this wherein people have suffered by Indian brutal forces but the the more painful is the criminal silence of the international community towards Kashmir and i pray for the early and speedy recovery of Nisar Ahmad and i hope these sacrifices will not go in vain and sooner or later India has to acknowledge the peoples demand for right to self determination and definitely Kashmiris will see the dawn of freedom.
