A physically challenged artist, Umar Jarral, from Lahore who suffers from cerebral palsy has made very beautiful portraits of the Holy Kaaba and Prime Minster (PM) Imran Khan, which he wants to gift to the PM. He also wants to meet PM Khan one day.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture.
Talking to The Current, Umar’s brother, Muhammad Ahmed, said that Umar is trying for four years to meet the premier. He met a few ministers but was not able to meet the PM.
“We are a total of seven siblings. Five of them have suffered from CP. Our parents are very old. My sister and I take care of the other siblings,” Umar’s brother added.
“Umar used to speak when he was seven years old but now he has lost his speech ability. He communicates with us by writing messages to us. All of us want to meet PM Imran and request him to arrange an exhibition for Umar’s art,” he said.
Umar also runs a Facebook page where he posts his artwork. Here are a few more portraits made by Umar.
