While the Nation mourns the horrifying attack by the suicide bomber on CRPF soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir in Pulwama district, the father of the bomber has another side of the story to say.
Gulam Hassan Dar, the father of Adil Ahmad Dar who claimed to be the suicide bomber said that Indian security forces are responsible for his son turning into a terrorist. He said that few humiliating incidents with the Indian security forces shove him to join the terrorist group.
"Last year in March, Adil Ahmad went missing. We gave up on him after three months of searching. Adil shared a particular incident with us which had angered him against the security forces after which he left the valley to join the terrorist group," said Gulam.
Talking about the incident the terrorist’s father said, “Three years back when Adil was returning from school, the army stopped him and made him bow down before them. They asked him to rub his nose to the ground. Adil felt humiliated and the incident disturbed him a lot."
Gulam is a fabric salesman in Kashmir while his three sons used to do odd jobs for the sake of income. Being the second child among the three, Adil used to help his mother with household works as narrated by his mother Fahmeeda, who is well aware of the incident that disturbed Adil. "He was a school drop-out and was working in a constructing site. He came for lunch and left the home on his bicycle. A few days later a picture of Adil with guns and explosives appeared in the social media which shocked us. We desperately wanted him to quit militancy," she added.
The 20-year-old Adil Ahmad Dar from Lethipora in Kashmir rode his SUV with 300 kilos of explosives into one of the 78 vehicle convoys of CRPF jawans which killed over 40 soldiers and injured many others.
