When he [the US soldier] hits her [the sister-in-law] with a slap and she pleads him in god’s name, half of his [victim’s] body is lying inside, martyred, half of his body outside, martyred. She gets up and she is forced back to her place and she carries out the Islamic ritual for the dead and she lights the lamp and the place is full of Americans, who raised their voices that it was one American - and that, too, he was insane? What shame is this? Why doesn’t an insane [man] kill himself… Why doesn’t an insane kill his own friends? What kind of insane is he that he can kill this poor guy’s 11 children and my brother and then directly find his way back to his base? That he can make it to four homes within an area of four kilometres, I am amazed at that.
Then my sister-in-law got up and performed the rituals for my martyred brother Mohamed Dawood until the morning. For god’s sake, you think about it for a second: until the morning, the woman is sitting with the martyr lying in front of her. Then I get a call in the morning, and in what condition I make my way there?
I want no compensation, from no one. I don’t want Hajj [pilgrimage to Mecca], I don’t want money, I don’t want a villa in Aino Mina [a posh neighbourhood in Kandahar city], I just want the punishment of the Americans. I want it, I want it, I want it. And I have laid down my own head in god’s will. And if that is not possible, god be with you, I am leaving right now.

So it wasn’t just one ‘insane’ guy?
