Iraqi insurgents who have claimed to belong to Islamic Retaliation Movement Armed Resistance have kidnapped a Pakistani driver "Amjad Hafeez", and threatened to behead him unless Iraqi prisoners are released.

Amjad urged President Pervez Musharraf to close the Pakistani Embassy in Iraq and to ban all Pakistanis from coming to Iraq. He appealed to his countrymen not to come to work in Iraq.

The family of Amjad Hafeez is in deep agony. His mother is shattered. She has said: "Iraqis are Muslims and we are Muslims. They have mothers too. They should feel the pain agony of a mother release him".

A spokesman of foreign ministry of Pakistan said that the Government of Pakistan has taken a clear and consistent stand on Iraq as Pakistan believed that the Iraqi people have the right to determine their future and that Iraq's sovereignty, national unity and territorial integrity must be maintained at all costs.
