Fida Nabi, succumbed to his injuries in the Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) on August 8, 2010. He was 17 years old. During a protest rally in 2010 outside his house, he was injured when police started firing on people in the Shalteng area on the city outskirts. His brother, Abid Nabi, a photojournalist, remembers his brother on his second death anniversary with the below poem he wrote.
Apni maa sey judaa huwa Fida.
Aur sab ko rula gaya Fida.
Jane kis din milain gey phir “hum tum”.
Jaatey jaatey kuchh tou batatey Fida.
Rounaq-e-anjumann huwi bey noor.
Aaake mehfil ko phirr saja Fida.
Dekh kitney tarass rahe hain hum.
Wapas aake hum sab ko hasaa Fida.
Aalim-o-Aarif ho tumhii zaahid.
Ab pukarein kise, bata Fida…?
