Interview and Feature by Fahad Faruqui for Express Tribune
One day, nearly 50 armed men, with the slogan ‘NO FEAR’ emblazoned on their jackets, stormed into his villa, handcuffed him, and took him to a fortress-like prison in Islamabad. During this period of incarceration, he was taken to a house to meet officials from US and UK agencies before being transported back to prison. This happened numerous times.
“They’d ask questions like: Why were you in Afghanistan? Where were you in Afghanistan? Did you meet Osama bin Laden? Do you know anyone from alQaeda?” said Deghayes.
“This was one thing that infuriated all the inmates,” said Deghayes. “They would take a copy of the Holy Quran, and throw it in a toilet, or on the floor. Sometimes you would come back to your cell and find boot stains or abusive words written inside the Quran.”

A list of democratic activists in Syria, targeted by the state security forces for assassination, arrest, and torture.
Graphic. I put this warning telling myself I should not.
While the world remains silent children are being tortured in Syria. A child went through this.
Imagine the enormous pain this little child went through and all the fear of not knowing how more brutal it is possible for a human being to be.
Imagine having your abducted child back in this condition.
May Allah reward those who were treated unjustly.
