Face Of The Day: The Pakistan Child Rescued From A Madrassa’s Healing Chains

by | 14th, December 2011

FACE of The Day: A Pakistani child weeps after being rescued by police during a raid at a madrass – an Islamic seminary – on the outskirts of Karachi, Pakistan on early Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2011. Pakistani police discovered drug addicts held in chains at an Islamic seminary that offered rehabilitation services, and said that young children were also sometimes shackled at the institution.

Bloody hell…

Police official Akram Khan told AFP:

“Relatives of the elder boys and men say they had sent them for drug addiction rehabilitation, while younger children’s relatives say they were sent for religious studies.”

Opium all round…
