Dear Friends and Colleagues,
 You all must be remembering Junaid, 14, who was lynched by a violent  mob inside a Mewat bound train just before two days of IED this year.
 This evening his  family members called to inform that Junaid’s father has had severe heart attack and was brought to Delhi, but could not find admission in any government hospital ( They went to AIIMS and Safdarjung ). They had no choice but to get admitted in a private Noida hospital and getting treatment in the ICU. somehow Junaid’s familywala  have managed to pay the initial amount to the hospital but further they are not able to meet the cost of the treatment. In most probability his father will go for operation in a day or two.
Needless to say the family is too poor to get the proper treatment without external help. Today I had gone to see him, could only meet his relatives as he is in ICU. I could manage to provide Rs 4000 as immediate support and assured them to request friends and activists.
If you feel like helping them, please let me know. Even a small amount will help them greatly. Tomorrow they will be informed about the further treatment procedure and the tentative cost. 
Meanwhile if any of you have any contact in a government hospital, please help in his admission. A few of us can do the running around.
The poor man has been in acute depression since Junaid lost his life. His wife, Junaid’s mother is still not able to talk to anyone.  You will be sorrowfully surprised to know that the villagers did not board any train till 45 days after Junaid was killed, only recently some people have started traveling by train in the absence of any other option. Such is the state of shock they are living in since then. 
 If anyone can visit them, most welcome. He is admitted in the Metro Hospital, Noida. 
 Hope we are able to help them in distress or at least wish him recovery. 
In grief and rage,
 Kiran Shaheen

Jalaluddin’s family members said he was under a lot of stress after one of the accused was granted bail.
Jalaluddin’s family members said he was under a lot of stress after one of the accused was granted bail.

Forty six-year-old Jalaluddin, father of Junaid Khan who was lynched by a mob on a train at Ballabhgarh in Haryana, suffered a heart attack on Monday evening following which he was admitted to a hospital.

Chhaya Malhotra, spokesperson of Metro Hospital at Noida Sector 12 where Jalaluddin was admitted, said his condition was stable.

“Jalaluddin was admitted to our hospital due to a heart attack. Doctors are attending to him as of now,” Chhaya said.

A medical staff attending to Jalaluddin said he would undergo an operation soon.

“We have done angiography on the patient and doctors have noticed a blockage problem in his heart. The patient is responding at the moment and we are feeding him as well. He is stable and will be operated on Tuesday morning,” said the staff.

Jalaluddin’s family members said he was under a lot of stress after one of the accused was granted bail.

“After Junaid was killed, our lives changed completely. Jalaluddin was under lot of stress and his condition deteriorated after the court released one of the accused and reduced his charges,” said Saira, his wife.

On June 22, Jalaluddin’s son Junaid Khan (15) was lynched and stabbed to death by a mob on board a Mathura-bound train when an argument over a seat turned into religious slurs.

One of the four accused, Chandra Prakash, was granted bail after the court found no direct link with the main accused in the murder.

The brutal murder led to a series of protests across India against the rise in incidents of mob violence in India.

Jalaluddin had demanded death sentence for the culprits.
