The locals believe that Kaleem is a ‘devil’s child’ and his giant hands is actually the result of a curse. “There is no treatment for this boy. He is a devil’s child. This is just because his parents must have committed a wrong deed at some point in their life,” one of the villagers said.

After several international newspapers published the boy’s story, a team of medical experts agreed to provide help and perform an urgent surgery. The medics eventually performed a series of complicated operations to reduce the growth of his forearm, hand and fingers, so Kaleem can use them.

After the operation Kaleem’s father Shamim said:

“We knew that there is no such thing as a devil’s child. The villagers love to gossip and that is what they are doing about our son. Ultimately, he is our son and we have to take care of him.”
