Kashmiri Boy Who Acted in Shahid Kapoor’s “Haider” Martyred By Indian Forces

Decades ago when I was about five or six years old kid, I remember there used to telecast a file on Occupied Kashmir, everyday after 9pm news bulletin with song in background, mere watan teri jannat mei aayein ge ek din…

Being a child, this song and the images shown in it sent chills down my spine. I used to pray Allah to help Kashmiris and stop their brutal killings.

Losing Jammu & Kashmir in hands of cartographers 

With passing days, Kashmir issue has become our routine. However, the images still make our hearts cry. Recently I read the sad news of Saqib Bilalwal murder by Indian forces.

Saqib Bilawal in Haider

The 17-year old Saqib is the same guy who acted in Bollywood movie Haider. The prominent cast was Shahid Kapoor, Tabbu and Shradha Kapoor. The youth just passed his 10th grade exams. Around 3 months back Saqib and his friend were playing football in a play ground. Nobody knows where they wen from their. After 3 months, they were encountered by Indian forces.

Sitting here, writing about this handsome guy, I am feeling like out of words. In our routine life when we hear the news of someone’s dismissal closed to us, our immediate reaction is, ‘Oh I last met him 2 days ago’, or something like that… The Bollywood actors, who must had spent time with him, are quite…

Aren’t they sad… don’t they feel like doing anything for Kashmiris… Or they also feel the same as their media is reporting?

That is “decent” reporting I could find… Otherwise the kind of reporting and the kind of language Indians are using for the young guy and his friend, is making me wonder if they are humans…

They joined militancy so they had to be killed, proof of joining militancy, “negative”. Indian forces have right to kill anyone by charging them with being in contact with militant groups. There is no accountability.

We should not be hopeless, Allah has power over everything. Inshallah Kashmir will see the dawn of freedom one day…
