Srinagar: The usually quiet village of Malangpora located in Awantipora Tehsil of South Kashmir District of Pulwama is in news as a young boy from village Adil Bilal has joined militant ranks few months back.
As Kashmir News Bureau made its way into village the surroundings of this village are quite serene and calm with strategically important military airport, ironically were Adil Bilal too worked.
Pertinently, 21 year old Adil Bilal left his home on October 7, 2017 to joint militancy.
When we entered the residence of Adil Bilal the grim, sad, puzzled faces of the family members of Adil Bilal welcomed us. Even the kids of the household were not having any smile on the faces.
Haseena Akthar, mother of Adil Bilal with heartrending sobs and tears narrated her woeful tale – ”I cannot live without my son he has always been heartthrob and I never thought one day he will leave like this. I am sick facing number of serious ailments and in his absence my condition is worsening. I appeal to militant leadership to return my son back as he is the vision of my eyes .”
Adil Bilal’s mother says she has not dared to visit the room of Adil Bilal located in upper story since he left home as according to her without seeing him in his room will kill her.
”I have not slept even for a single night since Adil left home to join militants and me and my husband every night remember him with tears. I am fearful his father will lose vision as he weeps whole night remembering Adil Bilal,” states Haseena Akthar.
In story of Haseena lies the real pain faced by mothers in Kashmir on account of lingering Kashmir conflict. (KNB)
