Recently, there has been a news report that an ailing son of a militant had died in a jail in Peshawar. It was further reported that the boy was 16 years old and had no charges of terrorism against him and was only being held in connection with his father. He was suffering from kidney disease and died due to non-availability of treatment facilities. Even the request by his family to release him was rejected. It is my personal appeal as a concerned citizen that we should not fall down to such levels. We should show them that we have high moral values and that we do not target the innocent.
