Hapless Father to Receive Daughter into Pieces- Yells for Help

For me its just another morning, just another day but there are few unfortunate Pakistanis for whom its another beginning of an unending horrific tale. What's their fault? Why are they being treated in every inhumane way? Let's take an over view and try to unveil many faces who claim themselves to be working hard for the common man of Pakistan.

Shamsul Anwar is a poor, unfortunate father of nine innocent children including two twin daughters and seven sons. He has served in Pakistan Army as a Lance Naik for some seventeen years and got retired in 1992. He had everything to be grateful to Allah even after his retirement. However, he had yet to face the biggest trauma of his life in the return of his sincere efforts, and his love for his homeland.According to The News  , he caught a terrorist red-handed, who was then busy in planting explosives in Jamia Masjid of Dhoke Gujran at Misrial Road, Rawalpindi back in 2001. The News, further reported that 17 more of the terrorists belonging to the same group were arrested, who were later on shifted to an undisclosed place. After, some five years of this incident, terrorists played a nasty game to avenge this brave man of the nation. They kidnapped two of his sons, Muhammad Yaseen and Faizullah aged 16 and 14 respectively from the school in broad day light. 

Terrorists demanded a huge money which ofcourse he was in no state to pay. Shamsul Anwar then contacted police and Army, where he had spent 17 years working for his country men. Sadly, police department shun him away with its traditional humiliating attitude and army too couldn't help him. I personally feel that when 70% of the country budget is being spent on Pakistan Army,then why Army couldn't find any budget to get his son released? Aren't we- The people of Pakistan growing a White Elephant in the form of Pakistan Army? Do we give these many taxes only for generals and colonels of our army? I respect Pakistan Army with all my heart, but this account and several others are disappointing. Army is unable to stop NATO attacks, unable to stop terrorist activities of America & backwater, unable to detect any drones- and so unable to take any suitable action against our enemies. Do we need such an army? An army who has failed to protect its country men?   

Shamsul Anwar, got the pieces of his eldest son in a gunny bag. Terrorists had killed his son in the most brutal way. Not even this, they even recorded the whole tragedy and gifted the CD with his son's body pieces to him. This is not the end of the horrific story, brace your mind for even more terror to come. His second son was released by the captors after a long bondage on the payment of a heavy ransom which he paid by selling out his home and some vehicles. Miserably, his second son was injected with poisonous medicines during the captivity and was diagnosed with Blood Cancer. Piteous  father had no money left for the treatment of his young son after paying the ransom. He therefore contacted Imran Khan-Chairman of PTI to help him. Alas! Imran Khan who seems to be the apple of all hearts these days, could pay him only Rs 20,000 with a reference chit of Shaukat Khanam Hospital. Administration estimated a bill of Rs 1.2 million!

I just wonder that if Shaukat Khanum has no funds even for this man, then whom for? I don't consider the stats available on his sites authentic that claim to treat thousands of people for free per year. We all know that Pakistan government has failed, but people of Pakistan are expecting  a "safe, peaceful revolution" from Imran. All the youth seems to be blind for him, but I always feel confused about him. For me he has a contradictory personality. When he is asked that why does he meet Munter secretly, then he shuns such questions by adopting a humiliating way! 

Shamsul Anwar- The unlucky father is these days screaming out loud for the release of her daughter from the same group of captors. Who is going to help him? the so called NGOs, army or the Symbol of  Hope- Imran khan? 

Let us wait together, for these faces to be unveiled. Meanwhile watch these puppets controlled by agencies! 

UPDATE 2: It has been confirmed by various news sources that this guy was a scam and has been arrested. Read here and here. Though its difficult to decide that whom should we believe since the earlier story was also a news story and the later ones too. I am still happy that we all stood for a cause. Its been heard army regiment is trying to send back all the donations.

UPDATE: Few bloggers have given some account numbers to send in donations. However I don't consider them authentic. It might be a fraud, even if it is not- It will activate many other kidnappers demanding heavy ransoms. I would also suggest to not to contact him at the given contact numbers, available at internet. We should pray that authentic NGOs or individuals who have gained enough trust from public, come forward to help this man.  IF you want to send donations, contact them.

This is an absolute torture. Courts, police, justice all are crap when you are a citizen of Pakistan.

Very brutal. I reckon that Ansar barni will soon come forward to help this poor man.

Fakiha said...

I have seen that at few websites some people are sharing account numbers to send in donations. Why havent you? you did not even bother to mention his contact number that is so open?
If you want to helm him, then i think you should be sharing the full details..

Fakiha:
At first I just ignored those account numbers but your comment made me post my take on this issue in this story! Read the update!

It can be a fraud itself to gain sympathies. Why is it covered only by NEWS newspaper and not by others? Even no TV coverage?

John said...

Jabeen said...

humera said...

ReeBz said...

Well said.

ReeBz said...

I appreciate your kind words, please keep coming back

ReeBz said...

I have read at a blog that Ansar barni, has planned to tackle this issue.

ReeBz said...

Thats what I wonder!!

ReeBz said...

So you think that he should be given enough time like Zardari, mush, nawaz and all? What will be the difference between him and others then? Why should we vote him then? just for the sake of change? Even without judging that he is fair or not?

Well I think that each story should be well checked before making a post like this :(

A small update would not help; majority of those who read the post would not check out the update, only a small proportion will.

Who's responsible for the misinformation that enters their mind :( ?

Still, it's much better to make a new post explaining the situation and to remove the original post. It's just a suggestion of course.

ReeBz said...

Thanks for coming The absolute verdict team!
Seems that you are not aware of the fcat that how such issues are covered. Iam not a fool to delete this post. There are many ppl who are coming to this post by searching from google. They would definitely read the post ans the UPDATE. But id it is deleted, many will be annoyed and leave the page instead of looking for the other similar story present on the blog.

Seconfly,I am just a writer, not a journalist. U only write my opinions here or followups of a news story that has already been published in some authentic news magazine or paper. Since I am not a journalist I cant counter check or verify! Therefore, updates are given.

Thirdly, i donot give any verdict here. The earlier was also a news story and the later ones too. Which one are you gonna believe? How can you say that the earlier was a drama or now?

Hassan said...

Please delete this block post. This was a fake and the News already made this clear that the news ws totally made up for money

ReeBz said...

Dear Hassan
Blog post once made cannot be deleted. Because search engines keep sending the traffic to the post. It is awful for the reader when he is sent by a search engine to a specific site and he doesnot find what he is looking for.

I have given news sources here for rectidication. What is the problem then?
