Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,
When I read about this, I cried and anger burned inside my heart. Subhan'Allah, this is what they do to our Brothers' and Sisters'. He is one among many who suffer through this and are still suffering even now. When will the Muslim Ummah wake up? May Allah subhanna wa ta'alas curse be upon those who torture and abuse innocent people. Ameen ya rabb. Insha'Allah, not a day will go by where they will not suffer for their wrong doings, in this World and the hereafter.
Dilawar, our brother, was a young 22 year old Afghan taxi driver and farmer, living a normal life, trying to make ends meet when he was detained by the occupiers, American forces.
They tortured him so much, with no mercy, that he ultimately died. He had been hit so many time that his leg tissues were falling apart.
The brutality at Bagram peaked in December 2002 , when U.S. soldiers beat two Afghan detainees, Habibullah and Dilawar, to death as they hung by their wrists.http://news.yahoo.com/s/mcclatchy/20080618/wl_mcclatchy/2969819
Dilawar died on Dec. 10 , seven days after Habibullah died. He'd been hit in his leg so many times that the tissue was "falling apart" and had "basically been pulpified," said then-Lt. Col. Elizabeth Rouse , the Air Force medical examiner who performed the autopsy on him.
Had Dilawar lived, Rouse said in sworn testimony, "I believe the injury to the legs are so extensive that it would have required amputation."
When he asked for Water while being interrogated, the animals punched him in the face and put a hole at the bottom of the bottle.
Mr. Dilawar asked for a drink of water, and one of the two interrogators, Specialist Joshua R. Claus, 21, picked up a large plastic bottle. But first he punched a hole in the bottom, the interpreter said, so as the prisoner fumbled weakly with the cap, the water poured out over his orange prison scrubs. The soldier then grabbed the bottle back and began squirting the water forcefully into Mr. Dilawar's face.
"Come on, drink!" the interpreter said Specialist Claus had shouted, as the prisoner gagged on the spray. "Drink!"
At the interrogators' behest, a guard tried to force the young man to his knees. But his legs, which had been pummeled by guards for several days, could no longer bend. An interrogator told Mr. Dilawar that he could see a doctor after they finished with him. When he was finally sent back to his cell, though, the guards were instructed only to chain the prisoner back to the ceiling.
Allahul Musta'an. May Allah subhanna wa ta'ala grant him the highest level of Jannat Al-Firdaws. Ameen.
What are we doing? When will the Muslim Ummah wake-up? They treat our Brothers' and Sisters' like dirt and yet, we stay silent. Subhan'Allah. What is worse is that these pathethic so-called human beings knew that he was innocent. Knew he had nothing to do with anything.
Allah subhanna wa ta'ala says in the Qur'an in Surat Al-Burooj:
وَلَهُمۡ عَذَابُ ٱلۡحَرِيقِ
Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance, (to Allah), will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.
