Out on bail, Malegaon blast accused runs healing centre for arthritis patients

Friday February 08, 2013 06:27:17 PM, Staff Reporter



Malegaon: Marshal Battery & Inverter Point is exactly the same place from where Shabbir Ahmed Masihullah (38) was picked up by the police in August 2006 and later chargesheeted in the 2006 Malegaon blast case. Five years and a year after being released on bail, he restarted his business but the place has now become famous more as a healing point for arthritis patients than as a sales counter for batteries and inverters.

Shabbir after getting bail in November 2011, while reviving the business he was in before being arrested, partitioned his shop in such a way that half is reserved for the battery and inverter business whereas the other half is used for the local and outside patients who come from faraway places like Mumbai, Bhiwandi, Aurangabad, Pune, Dhule and Chalisgaon for a treatment.

“Besides running my regular business, I treat 12-15 patients daily. Most of these patients are suffering from knee joint, shoulder, neck, spinal and other neurological pains. I use the Acupressure technique I learnt in jail to provide them relief from the pain. Acupressure is very effective in such cases for immediate relief and also for complete healing provided a patient completes the entire course involving 4-5 sessions”, he said while talking to

Interestingly, even in Malegaon, some of his patients are those, who were in some way or the other, responsible for sending him to jail. Shabbir, however, said he used to treat them with the same attention and kindness that were reserved for others.

To the surprise of most of the patients, the technique is working wonderfully well. Jamil Karanti, a local businessman, who brought his close kin to Shabbir’s “clinic” for a treatment said that the result was astonishing for him.


“I had already shown my niece to other places before coming here. But, it was within five sessions here, she got her pain completely eradicated”, he said.

An expert in the Acupressure – an alternative medicine and Chinese technique, Shabbir was first introduced to the technique when he saw a Thane based physiotherapist who was lodged in Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail in a cheque bounce case, applying the method on the jail inmates who were suffering from neurological and other pain.

“Jail is a place where nobody cares about anyone. But, this man though was a detainee like us, was very caring and used to apply the technique on jail inmates whenever he would see them suffering from any kind of pain”, Shabbir recalled.

Impressed, Shabbir requested him for a training. After the release of the Thane based expert from the jail, the “mission” was taken over by him. Soon, he became so popular that the Superintendent of Arthur Road Jail, who suffered from neck-pain, came for the needed sessions and got his pain completely healed.

Interestingly, even in Malegaon, some of his patients are those, who were in some way or the other, responsible for sending him to jail. Shabbir, however, said he used to treat them with the same attention and kindness that were reserved for others.

“It appears to me that the technique which I learnt in jail is gifted to me by Allah, the Almighty. I do not charge anything for the treatment. I do it as a charity. Some of the people who are coming to me though are police personnel and were responsible for my sufferings. But, I still treat them with the same kindness as I do not have any kind of grudge against them”, he said.
