Zain Mustafa is a victim of the Parade Lane mosque attack, but has now recovered by the will of God. He had a message that was sent out to PYA members.
During the choas of the massacre at the mosque of parade lane. I was amongst those at the right of the frontmost saf of the mosque’s sehan. This was the first place attacked. I was with my grandfather as usual. He was on his wheel chair, and despite being in poor health insisted on offering juma in the mosque. As the firing, grenading and whatnot started, everyone laid down helplessly on the floor. Those at the back started fleeing. Me being with my grandfather had to stay and protect him. I covered him in a crouching position so that my body was over his. In the firing that ensued. I got hit twice and fell down. On the floor I glanced back, my grandfather was motionless. He had taken a bullet and died on the spot. I am proud of him. There was no other death befitting him than shahadat. As for me, I layed down amid the grenading and firing, I was immobile and could only wait for help to come.
I have no remorse over what happened to me. This will not stop me from going about my usual routine. I am not afraid of these people, and if need be I would face them again.
I am thankful to PYA members for all thier support. It was indeed heart lifting to see all the support I received. I owe part of my recovery to the support from u guys and thankyou all for your prayers, God knows I needed them all.
The critical stages of recovery have passed, I am looking forward to joining your ranks soon.
