Pellet victim Insha qualifies class 10th exam
SRINAGAR, Jan 9: Insha Mushtaq of Sedow village in Shopian, who lost her eyesight in pellet firing by security force during 2016 civilian unrest, has qualified her class 10th examination.

The results were declared this evening. Former chief minister Omar Abdullah congratulated her on her success.

According to Insha’s family, she received pellet injuries when she was watching protests from a window of her home on July 12, 2016. Due to injuries she was completely blinded.

She returned home in February last year after specialised treatment in hospitals and Mumbai.

Insha was very keen to continue her studies. A tutor used to come to her house every day, read aloud to her from the books. She recorded what he narrated. Later, Insha would play the recording, trying to comprehend and remember the lessons.

Qualifying the examination by Insha brought joy in the family of Insha. Her father Mushtaq Ahmad Lone said the result is beyond their expectations and that the results will inspire her to study more.

According to her result, Insha will have to appear in Mathematics paper again. She has been declared qualified with a note that “she needs to improve’.

Insha’s examination helper was a student of a class lower than her and selected by authorities to write her papers on the basis of dictations by Insha.

Former chief minister Omar Abdullah congratulated Insha for clearing her examinations.

Omar tweeted, “A special shout out to young Insha who was blinded by pellets during the 2016 protests & has cleared her 10th exams today. May Allah keep rewarding your hard work & efforts.”

In another tweet, he also congratulated all 10th class successful candidates. “Congratulations to all the boys & girls who cleared their Class 10 exams in J&K. Good luck for the future & I hope you continue to pursue your education,” he tweeted.
