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.
Fareed Khan told Reuters "I knocked on the door of each and every government official but no one gave me justice to recover my only son.Now the Taliban are my last hope. I believe they will recover my son. The Taliban are good Muslims and good human beings. They don't demand bribes for the provision of justice".
Khan, 45, said he had no other choice in his quest to rescue his son "Furqan Fareed" who was kidnapped on November 5 in the city of Bannu. 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".
