ISLAMABAD (NNI) - Sitting in the scorching heat and holding a placard in his hand, Muhammad Arslan, 10, is from one of the dozen families camping in capital Islamabad, demanding government help to release their relatives who are in prisons abroad. Arslan, from Sialkot, was only three years old when his father and mother went to Saudi Arabia as pilgrims but were arrested at Jeddah airport for drug smuggling. Their family, short of financial resources, could not go to Saudi Arabia to help them legally. The couple, according to family members, have been in a jail for last seven years facing interrogations and prosecution but the authorities of federal ministry for overseas Pakistanis and of foreign ministry neither listen their matter properly nor help them. The arrest of the couple made their two kids, Arslan and his elder sister Aatiqa, a big liability at the feeble shoulders of their ailing aged grandfather. Arslans grandfather Khushi Muhammad, 67, has been visiting many government offices and authorities for last six years without any success. But coldness and misbehaviour of non-cooperative government authorities could not shackle the conation of the old man. How can I lose heart, my son is in jail and I want him get free,I fear if I die any day what will happen to these two kids who are totally depending on me, Khushi Muhammad said. According to the latest official data of Pakistani senate (the upper house), over 7,000 Pakistanis are languishing in foreign jails of different countries across the world. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed the house about the formation of a special cell in the Foreign Office which will watch over the cases of Pakistanis detained abroad. The senates Standing Committee on Interior issued an advisory to the foreign ministry to take immediate steps for the release of Pakistanis currently in foreign jails and also sign agreements on exchange of prisoners where necessary.
