“I am proud of my son. He laid down his life for the country. Besides he saved the lives of thousands of people, that is why we are happy and proud that our son has been martyred,” Maqsood Ahmad Sheikh told reporters on the sidelines of the wreath laying ceremony of his son at DPL Baramulla. Sheikh, who last spoke to his son on phone three days ago, said that he knows that his son will never return but he gave his life while fighting. “It is a matter of pride for us,” he said.
