My world is lost", says a shocked Naeem Khan Jadoon, a postman whose 8-year old son, Zeeshan was abducted, molested and later strangulated by unknown culprits on June 7, in New Karachi, a suburban locality of Karachi.

Karachi police on an anonymous call found the charred body of Zeeshan wrapped in a gunny bag. The autopsy report revealed that the boy was earlier brutally molested and later strangulated. Naeem Khan Jadoon told the newsmen that his son had disappeared on Sunday, June 5, but when he went to lodge a FIR in this regard, the area police asked him " go and search your son yourself". He said the duty police officer instead of lodging the FIR, had only noted down the name of his son on a paper, and said if he found any clue to his missing son, he would let him know. " They (police) did find clue to my son, but not before he was killed", Jadoon said. No action has so far been taken against the police officers who had refused to register the FIR on the request of Mr. Jadoon. Security agencies claim to have broken the "backbone" of "Al Qaeda terrorists", but the ever-increasing incidents of murder, kidnap for ransom and other street crimes, compel the people of Pakistan to think that if security agencies can arrest the high profile "terrorists" like Abu Zubaida, Khaled Shaikh Mohammed and Abul Faraj, then why canít they break the backbone of these ordinary criminals? Probably its not there priority.

Q-1 Security agencies have been successful against "Al Qeada operatives", but why not against the criminals?

Q-2 The government claims that the law and order situation in all the four provinces is satisfactory and it time to time compares with other countries of the region. What do you think?

Q-3 What action should be taken against the concerned police office?

Q-4 Should the security agencies concentrating on war against criminals instead of "war on terror"?

The Administration (Police)

Dear sir,

This is sad by true that 99% of crime are committed due to the inefficiency/ negligence/ cooperation of police.
I have a personal experience. The authority of the SHO is unquestionable by the high authorities of police and even by the courts.
In my experience majority of the prisoners in different prisons in NWFP are innocent. The police made false cases against them, in order to save the main culprits. Believe me, if the police department were fixed, 99 per cent of crimes will be reduced. The Shaheen Squad in Peshawar were performing the duty of pimps on motorcycls. Whenever you need a prostitute, you ask the shaheem squad, and they guide the prostitute, sitting usually in rikshaws, towards you. In the same fasion, some of the police mobiles were escorting smugglers trucks in the night on kohat road. If you want to experience, you go and see yourself. Or check another thing. Majority of the police people are addict. They smoke charas, or using opium or drinking alcohol. I am not writing anything about their dishonesty, bribes, or wealth.

To Whom It May Concern,

I have been doing research on criminal offences in Pakistan for some time now. I can't believe that when you would go and report that your child is missing that the authorities wouldn't do anything. This amazes me how the world works now a days. To the man Mr. Jadoon I am so sorry that your childs life ended the way it did. If I was in your shoes I would have an investigation started towards the police department and the action they took to look for your child. Because I really don't think they will be able to cover it up so easily. Once again I am sorry for your loss.

The Unthinkable Crime:

I have been thinking about this some more. In Canada if something is not right or rules are not followed we go to our Prime Minister of our Country. We raise our voices untill we are heard. I am asking you Mr. Jadoon to go to your minister Mr.Musharraf and speak out to him that his son's death should be investigated.
I am involved with Amnesty International and theses are the campaign's we speak out about. The four provinces claim law and order is satisfactory but I beg to differ. I that where there is a travel report saying to Canadians not to travel to Karachi because of the terrorist acts and other violence.
The actions that should be taken against the police in your country is a big investigation, and security should be taken more into consideration of your provinces and not the Al-Qaeda. There is dis-honesty in your department and of course a cover up for this little boys death. I would love to see Mr.Jadoon's son short life be will be put to rest as soon as he can get some answers.
Thank You.
