Mirwaiz visits Hiba at SMHS hospital as she undergoes second eye surgery

Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Wednesday visited 19-month-old pellet victim Hiba Nisar, who went second eye surgery today at SMHS Hospital.

Mirwaiz reached SMHS Hospital Wednesday afternoon and asked about the well-being of Hiba who was hit by pellets on November 25.


He said it was heart wrenching to see baby Hiba under the influence of anaesthesia as she underwent a second eye surgery.

“Heart wrenching to see baby Hiba under the influence of anaesthesia as she undergoes a second eye surgery while her parents cry! Such extreme cruelty! Ask Govt of India to Stop the tyranny of the #PelletGun on Kashmiris!” Mirwaiz wrote on Twitter.

Hiba is the youngest pellet victim in the current phase of violence in Kashmir, joining approximately 1,200 others hit in the eyes in the state since 2016.

Hiba was injured on November 25, after protests broke out at her village in Kapran, Shopian, following an encounter during which six militants were killed by government forces.
