My mother’s prayers have defeated terrorists: Ali Haider Gillani
LAHORE (92 News) – Ali Haider Gillani, the son of former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani has on Wednesday thanked the entire country for praying for him for three years.
In his message on social media website, Ali Haider said that he cannot explain the happiness after returning home. “My mother’s prayers have defeated the terrorists and I returned,” he said.
Ali Haider Gillani was recovered on Tuesday (yesterday) during a joint operation conducted by the US and Afghan forces from Afghanistan’s Ghazni province.
Meanwhile, he said that the pressure from Pakistani forces fighting militants in lawless frontier lands had forced his captors to take him over the border into Afghanistan. “I’m just looking forward to being reunited with my family and just getting back to normal life,” he said.
Earlier, heavily armed men had kidnapped former premier Yousuf Raza Gilani’s son Ali Haider after killing his secretary in Pakistan’s Punjab province three years ago.
Ali Haider, 27, was campaigning in Mati area of Multan, 350 km from Lahore, when the gunmen intercepted his SUV and fired indiscriminately. The gunmen, who came to the spot on motorcycles and a car, took Ali Haider away with them.
