Sinking fast: Sanaullah develops kidney failure

Published: May 8, 2013


The medical condition of the injured Pakistani prisoner in India Sanaullah Haq was described as “extremely critical” on Wednesday after he suffered kidney failure, according to a medical bulletin issued by the hospital.

“His overall status is extremely critical, far worse than yesterday night,” the medical bulletin issued by the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) said.

Sanaullah, who was serving a life term in a Jammu jail, was flown in to PGIMER in Chandigarh on Friday after he had been brutally attacked by another inmate. The attack appears to have been motivated by a similar incident involving Sarabjit Singh who had been imprisoned in Pakistan.

The bulletin issued by the Head of Neurosurgery, Prof SN Mathuriya and anesthesiologist Prof YK Batra stated, “Neurologically, he continues to be in deep coma.”

Sanaullah went into renal failure and was placed on peritoneal dialysis.

The inmate’s relatives, brother-in-law Mohammed Shehzad and nephew Mohammed Asif, who arrived in Chandigarh on Tuesday, visited him on Wednesday in the Advanced Trauma Centre of PGIMER.

Stringent security surrounds trauma centre where Sanaullah is being treated.

    I think UN has got more important things on hand to worry about than minding some unruly children.

    But the ‘tit for tat action in jail’ can be justified in the same manner as the ‘tat’ is justified by most of us. Lets look at people as humans first and nationality later.

    These are the indications of final moments.

    Only if ALLAH has a miracle in plan for him , he would carry on to live.

    Otherwise , may ALLAH forgive his sins for the pain he suffered , and may ALLAH forgive the sins of Sarabjit Singh for the pain he suffered , and similarly all who suffered at the hands of human cruelty.

    The incident of Sarabjit Singh and Sana ULLAH is symbolic representation of the cruelty of both Indian/Pakistani nations. So far we both have been denying the hate which we hide in our hearts , and then this event comes to prove both sides wrong.

    We cannot deny the reflection which we see in the mirror.
