“Abu, where is Mama? From last two days I am asking you and you always scratch your beard and don’t reply?”
A child of about seven years asked his father in the village of Kallar near Kandhar in Afghanistan.
“My son, I have told you so many times that she has gone to meet God. There is no need to ask again.”
Shabar was quite perplexed at the questions of his son who was the only one left in the family. His two brothers and four sisters had been termed collateral damage in the American bombing. He had a donkey cart and two buffaloes for his everyday living and he used to collect scraps of the falling bombs to sell in the city. It gave him enough money to feed all his family members easily.
About three days ago, he had erected a dry stem for the planes to bomb. But the target was close to his house. Bombs were dropped on his house mistakenly thought as a hideout of Taliban. He was outside with his son for having his beard trimmed. All other family members were buried in the rubble. The whole village flocked and retrieved the bodies. Each one was given appropriate burial. Form that day young Shehroz was asking Shabar as to where was his mother and his reply was usual.
The child was as perplexed by the sudden disappearance of his family and mother as was his father. He had seen his father weeping in secret and asked him the reason but to no avail. His young mind was confused by the thoughts of God and his mother. He was always thinking about God as to why he did not allow his mother or perhaps it was his mother who was not coming. When the child enquired as to how his mother went to God, he was told that she was special. Only those could go to God and meet Him, who were invited by him. Others could not go for he lived up into the sky.
The child remained silent and absorbed except occasional wailing in muffled sounds. In the evening sleep overpowered him. On the third day his queries became hysterical. He plainly asked his father to fetch his mother or he was going to the mountain to climb up to the sky. The father was rather bewildered at such hysterical attitude of his son and in pure chagrin he told him that it was only America who could fetch her.
“And where is America?” asked the son innocently.
He replied, “America is away from us on the other side of Pakistan.”
“And where is Pakistan?”
“Pakistan is on the other side of mountain?”
“Which mountain?’
“Mountain that is yonder.”
When the child looked at the mountain he thought that he could not go there. He asked his father, “Abu, is there any post office where this America could get my letter?”
“Ok, I am going to write a letter to this America to send Mama and all others back home at once, for I am feeling lonely and terrified.”
“By the way what type of person this America is?”
The father looked at the sky towards the flying fighters and said, “Very cruel”.
“Will he eat Mama?”
“Well, I shall write him my request.”
“What request?”
“O, America why don’t you forgive us? We are hungry, terrified and suffered enough. Find somebody else to eat and leave my Mama.”
Shabar looked at the sky and began scratching his beard.
