snakes_scorpionsThe mujahideen told us that Afghanistan’s deadly animals like snakes, scorpions, man-eating beasts etc did not harm the mujahideen although they lived in mountains and woods. But many soldiers of the enemy fell victim to them. When I asked him, Mawlana Sayfullah Akhtar said, “This is very true. It happened with me too at Khawst in 1983. I was in my trench in a mountain with the anti aircraft guns. I did not get enough chance to sleep because of the enemy’s aerial attacks. One night I lied down but soon felt something at my feet and suddenly it was like the prickling of a thorn. I saw with the torch that a scorpion was running away. I killed it. I felt a little pain on touching the place and feared that the poison might spread but relying on Allah I made a supplication and slept. I had a sound sleep and woke up in the morning. There was a small pimple there but no pain.”
