ALEXANDER KHAN did not have the easiest start to life. Born to a White mother and an Asian father in the racially divided years, his world collapsed when he was snatched from his mother following the breakdown of his parents marriage.
When his father died suddenly, Khan's step-family stepped in and raised him. But they showed him no love, nor kindness of any sort. At the age of 13 Khan is sent to Pakistan for a ‘holiday’ - one that was planned to last a lifetime. He is abducted by his uncle and sent to Haqqania, a Fundamentalist Madrassa (Islamic School) on the Pakistan and Afghanistan border now notorious for training some of the Taliban's top scholars and fighters.
Khan spoke no Arabic and had little knowledge of the Qur’an. He was beaten and tortured regularly for such 'crimes' by his teachers and mocked by other students. Khan must find a way out.......
After 30 years of searching for the truth, would Alexander ever find his mother - or the truth why he was treated so cruelly by the people who should have loved and protected him.
