The Democratic Freeodom Party (DFP) chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah on Monday said that he has adopted Insha Mushtaq, the 14-year-old girl from south Kashmir's Shopian who lost her eyesight after her both eyes were badly damaged by pellets, saying "from now she is my third daughter".

In a statement, Shah said he has adopted Insha and will take care of her till his last breath. 

Pertinently, Shabir Ahmad Shah on Friday announced to donate his eyes after his death to those whose eyesight was snatched by the PDP's 'vision'.

Announcing the decision, Shah said, "I will raise up Insha like my own daughters. From now, she is my third daughter."

As such, a delegation of Freedom Party visited the residence of Insha Mushtaq and apprised the family of Shabir Ahmad Shah's decision.

"It has been a deep desire of Shabir Ahmad Shah Sahib that a mission be started to help such victims to return to normal life and fulfill the dreams they had in their lives," the delegation told the family.

Shah said, "We cannot turn our eyes away from the sad plight of such victims and as humans we must try our best to help them in any possible way. Today, I reiterate that I'm proud of the conscious people of my nation and hope they will fufill their moral responsibilities towards the victims of the ongoing Intifada."

"The well-to-do people of the society should take a lead in this regard and take overall responsibility of some pellet victim so that they don't need to knock the doors of the 'anti-people' government. These children have had some dreams and we must help them realise those dreams. Those who can adopt any victim for life should not wait. God will reward them for such deed, In Sha Allah. This is a beautiful form of worshipping the God."

The DFP chairman said it is our responsibility to take care of those affected due to "state-sponsored atrocities" and also remain steadfast on our mission of freedom.
