Muhammad Idris Khattak with daughter Talia before he went missing late last year © Talia KhattakDOWNLOAD PDF HERE
Idris Khattak is a researcher and a father of two daughters. Last November, he went missing.
From what we know, Idris Khattak was driving home from a trip to Islamabad when four men stopped his car. They put a black hood over his head and took him away to a secret place. The men were not wearing uniforms but Amnesty International thinks they work for the government.
Amnesty also thinks that Idris Khattak was forced to disappear as punishment for reporting on human rights violations. In fact, Idris Khattak has worked with Amnesty International to inform us about the violations of basic rights that he was seeing.
Idris Khattak’s daughters worry about the health of their father. He is probably not getting the medication he needs regularly for diabetes. Every day is painful for them because they don’t know where he is.
Sadly, disappearances like this are common in Pakistan.
