Detention in Lahore

The beatings were difficult, but they weren’t the worst part …. [The worst] was the fear that I would never see my family.
?Marwan Jabour, describing how he felt when he was taken into detention
Jabour was arrested after having dinner in Lahore, Pakistan, at the home of a friend, a professor at a university in Lahore, on May 9, 2004. At about 9 p.m., when he was pulling his car out of his friend’s garage, a man on the street asked him about his friend. As Jabour responded, he was suddenly surrounded by a large group of Pakistani men in civilian clothing. The men grabbed him and cuffed his hands. They put him in a car and tried to put a sack over his head, but he fought back and they left the sack off.
