Javed Ahmad Tak, a resident of Bijbihara of South Kashmir, is inspiring the youth of the entire region with his work. In 1997, he became permanently disabled due to being shot by terrorists. The bullets injured his spinal cord, liver, kidney, gall bladder, everything.
This attack on Javed happened when he went to his aunt’s house. Meanwhile, on the midnight of March 21-22, suddenly some gunmen came to take their cousin forcibly. On protesting, he opened fire on Javed. In a way, the terrorists left him dead, but luck saved his life.
After this terrorist attack, Javed’s life was shattered badly, but he stood up and decided that he would help the differently-abled and terror victims like him. For this purpose, he opened the Jeba Apa Institute, where he is currently providing free education to more than 100 Divyang, deaf, deaf, blind, poor and terror-stricken children up to the eighth standard.
