The kidnapping of a British boy of Pakistani origin, Sohail Saeed, who is currently being held by a gang for ransom, is a very sad incident. Law enforcement agencies are trying their best to recover the child and one hopes they recover the boy safely. They have made very serious efforts in this case and one hopes this is not because the boy is British and the High Commission of UK in Pakistan is exerting a lot of pressure. It goes with out saying that the case of every Pakistani national must be treated with the same seriousness and intent of purpose. -MUBASHIR MAHMOOD, Karachi, March 5.
