An eight-year-old, Mehendi Hassan has been forced to stay indoors all his life because he terrifies other children and suffers from horrific pain if he touches anything due to a rare condition. The Bangladeshi born boy has been shunned by the society because of the acute skin disease that is effectively turning him to stone.
While his face looks normal, the rest of his body is covered in thick, scaly skin making it difficult to walk or touch anything.
His community, and even his grandmother, detest him according to Mehendi’s mother, who is calling on the government to diagnose and cure the condition that has robbed her son of his childhood.
He struggles to wear clothes as even slightest of friction to his skin is excruciating and stays at home all day because his appearance terrifies other children in the village. People find him filthy because of his condition and he has been home for eight years because whenever he goes out, villagers get scared and say bad things to him.
If you are a mother and you are not thanking God for not allowing such an omen to befall your children, then you must be an ingrate to Jehovah who has preserved you and everything about you from such a plague. No such evil shall befall us and our children in the name of Jehovah! Amen!!!!
