“Sab Allah ki marzi hai, hamara toh sab chala gaya. (Everything is God’s will. We have lost everything),” said Jamila Pawale, mother of convict Farooq Pawale. She came to meet her son at the TADA court on Wednesday. Pawale has been sentenced to death on five charges.

Soon after the arrest of her youngest son Farooq for his involvement in the 1993 serial bomb blast case, Jamila lost her other three sons. Two of her daughter-in-laws have also passed away.

Speaking to Hindustan Times after the sentencing, Jamila said: “We don’t support the verdict. We have lost everything during the trial, with the only hope that our only son would be freed, but it has not happened. We don’t have the financial capacity to take the fight to the Supreme Court.”

Farooq’s father Hamid Pawale, before entering the court to meet his son, said: “He was misguided by others, but death is not the price he should pay for it; the court should consider all aspects before the sentencing.” Pawale is the last blast executor to be sentenced by the TADA court.
