“Allah ki bachchi thi, Allah ne bula liya”: How the anti-CAA protests in Delhi killed a 2 month old baby

This unfortunate development raises various questions over using children as props for furthering agenda through protests.

The anti-CAA and anti-NRC have been continuing unabated in the national capital for the past 51 days. The real agenda behind the protest was rather apparent from the anti-Hindu posters and slogans like ‘Jinnah Wali Azadi’ being chanted at Shaheen Bagh. While the Jihad waged on at Shaheen Bagh, the media hailed one 20-day-old baby.

20-day old infant who was hailed by media as her mother brought her along for ‘protests’ in Delhi’s Jamia Nagar

In December, a 20-days-old baby whose mother was cradling her in her lap while sitting at Shaheen Bagh to protest against NRC and CAA.

In an exclusive story, OpIndia can now confirm that a child, about 2-months-old, who used to come to Shaheen Bagh for “protests” with her mother has breathed her last. Congress worker Sadaf Jafar also took to Facebook to announce that a two-months-old infant who accompanied her mother from Batla House in Jamia Nagar for protests, has breathed her last.

Similar posts were shared by other prominent personalities on social media.

The entire established media that seems to report constantly from Shaheen Bagh is yet to break this story or even acknowledge that a child has died due to the harsh weather conditions that she was put through during the 51-day long protest. There almost seems to be a concerted silence to ensure that the news of this child breathing her last is not published.

When our journalists visited Shaheen Bagh and spoke to some reporters from established media who were present at Shaheen Bagh, the reply was rather shocking. They said they are aware that a 2-month-old child has died due to the Shaheen Bagh protests, however, most of the media channels are unwilling to run this news.

When our reporters spoke to the protestors, it was revealed that a child has indeed lost her life due to the harsh weather conditions. The child was 2-months-old and her mother was taking her to protests at Shaheen Bagh and Jamia both. We were also told that the child and her mother used to travel from Batla house to the protest venue. After the death of the child, ‘dua’ was also read at Shaheen Bagh and Jamia for her.

When a protestor was asked about the death of the child, the protestor said, “Humne thodi maara hau suko? Allah ki bacchi thi, Allah ne apne paas bula liya. (We didn’t kill her. She was Allah’s child and she has gone back to Allah’)”. She further added, “Yahan par to bado par bhi goli maari jaa rahi hai, woh to bhala bachhi thi, qurban ho gayi (here even grown up people are shot at, she was after all a child. She has sacrificed her life).”

This unfortunate development raises various questions over using children as props for furthering agenda through protests. Multiple child welfare groups had also raised concerns over children being used during the anti-CAA protests at Jamia and Shaheen Bagh. A complaint was filed with National Commission for Protection of Child Rights in January against the use of children during the anti-CAA protests. Now, one two-months-old has lost her life because adults in her life threw away her life for political goals.
