Dear Editor,

I've been following up the articles on the recent plight of a mother and her thirteen- year-old daughter and am deeply troubled and annoyed by this story.

I've read the article published in SN, 2.6.04 about the rights groups' stance where Mr Khan is saying let the public judge him, as if the public supports him.

For his information I think I speak for the entire right-minded public when I say if the public judges him he will be severely traumatized.

Secondly, Stabroek News is the most professional news agency in Guyana and is balanced in its task, and I'm sure there's no side to Mr Khan's story. So kudos to Stabroek News.

Thirdly, even if the girl is living in poverty and she consented to Mr Khan, he is an immoral person to take advantage of her the way he did.

If he claims he wants to help out in the situation, why should he want a sexual relationship as well? Why not help others less fortunate also, both male and female?

It's good to see the "rights groups" come out in support of the family.

Yours faithfully,

Nicholas Harrinandan
