Shaheen Bagh: Parents of the dead infant show no regret, defend taking children out in cold, blame government

Speaking to media, Nazia even defends taking the infant out every night in Delhi's winter. She says that it is the fight of the children too, and they will also accompany parents to the protest venue.

Nazia, the mother of the four-month-old infant Mohammad Jahaan who reportedly died last week due to severe cold during anti-CAA protests in Shaheen Bagh said that she will continue to protest.

While speaking to ANI, Nazia said, “My son has caught a cold, there was no other health issue. We will still go to protest for our country. We don’t have any documents, what will we do? We demand that Modiji and Amit Shah Ji take back CAA & NRC “.

The infant died last week after he acquired a severe cold and congestion because of the exposure towards the chilling winter at the outdoor demonstration. However, his mother is determined to participate in the protests, saying it is “for the future of her children”, ignoring completely that CAA does not even concern Indian Muslims.

As per reports, Mohammad Arif and Nazia, the infant’s parents live in a hut put together with plastic sheets and cloth in the Batla House area and have a five-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son other than Mohammad Jahaan.

They hail from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, Arif is reportedly an embroidery worker and also drives an e-rickshaw.

“I had returned from Shaheen Baag at around 1 AM. After putting him and other kids to sleep, even I went to sleep. In the morning, I suddenly found him motionless. He was gone in his sleep,” Nazia said.

The couple asserted that they took their motionless infant to the nearby Alshifa Hospital on the morning of January 31 where he was declared dead on arrival.

Nazia has reportedly been visiting the Shaheen Bagh protest venue every day since December 18 along with the infant.

Speaking to media, Nazia even defends taking the infant out every night in Delhi’s winter. She says that it is the fight of the children too, and they will also accompany parents to the protest venue.

The death certificate issued by the hospital doesn’t mention any severe reason for death. However, the parents who took the infant out every night in Delhi’s severe cold, are unwilling to admit that an infant health and wellness is the primary responsibility for the parents.

“Why was I doing this? For my children and the children of all us who need a bright future in this country. The CAA divides us on religion and should never be accepted. I don’t know if there is politics involved but I know that I must question what is against the future of my children”, Nazia was quoted saying.

Arif, the infant’s father, also puts the blame squarely on the government. He has stated that they had to go out to protest only because the government brought CAA and NRC. None of them seems to register that NRC has not even been started yet and CAA has nothing to do with Indian citizens.

OpIndia had also reported on the death of a two-month-old child who had been accompanying its mother to Shaheen Bagh protests. However, we are unable to confirm whether the cases are the same or there has been the death of two infants.
