Frustrated With Government, Pakistani Man Turned To The Taliban For Help
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - Frustrated with the government's inability to help him, a man in Pakistan has appealed to Taliban warlords to rescue his 11-year-old son kidnapped by criminals more than a month ago.
"I knocked on the door of each and every government official but no one gave me justice to recover my only son," Fareed Khan told Reuters in the volatile northwestern city of Peshawar.
Most people in Pakistan's insurgency-plagued northwestern regions live in fear of Taliban insurgents who stage frequent attacks against security forces and civilians as part of their campaign to topple central government and impose Islamist rule.
Government officials were not available for comment.
Khan said his son suffered from epilepsy and feared that he might die. He added: "Now my wife, my three daughters and I publicly appeal to the Pakistani Taliban to recover my son."
