Lonely Planet

After the death of Roshan Jamal Khan’s father, Babu Peshkar Khan, on Wednesday, 28th September, 2011, this world turned into a lonely planet for his mother, Khatmunissa. She followed her husband to his heavenly abode two days later on Friday, September 30, 2011.

We pray to Allah that no person should be so ill-fated as to lose both the parents within two days and not be able to attend their last rites. It is even more tragic that Roshan has to mourn the deaths of his parents alone in solitary confinement in a far away foreign land.

The love bond that Roshan’s parents shared with each other was so strong that one could not live without the other. In fact, love is in abundance in Roshan’s family. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that a person coming from such a lovely family can ever have evil intentions to destroy human lives which Roshan has been accused of. Intentions of matadors are evil, not of the bull that is gored to death while defending itself.

Khatmunissa was going to perform Hajj this year. Her application was also approved by the Hajj committee. She had prepared for the Hajj journey, but it seems that Allah decided that she should undertake the journey to meet Him. May Allah grant her the reward for performing Hajj with everlasting, heavenly life!


Waiting for Son, Death Arrived

Roshan Jamal Khan’s father, Babu Peshkar Khan, spread the milk of compassion & humanity in his locality throughout his life through his milk dairy. He was 88 years old. He quit managing his dairy in April this year when he fell ill. His family doctor had given up hope.

Fearing the worst, we requested the Spanish Government through the Spanish Ambassador to grant parole to Roshan Jamal Khan so that his father could meet him before leaving for his heavenly abode. As Roshan had completed more than 3 years of his 6 year sentence and was to be deported to India soon, we expected the Spanish Government to show some mercy by granting the parole. We had also assured them of his return to Spain to complete the deportation formalities. But, regret to say that hearts of the matadors remained true to their reputation of cruelty. It is sadder to know that animal rights organization do more to secure mercy for animals than human rights organizations do for human rights violations.

Waiting to hug his son, Roshan Jamal Khan, who has been wrongly imprisoned in Spain, death embraced Babu Peshkar Khan on 28-9-11. May Allah grant him peace through everlasting, heavenly life!
