He has been helping Ras Al Khaymah College of Dental Sciences which is a component of Ras Al Khaymah Medical and Health Sciences University U.A.E. in setting their curriculum.
He had left the country on March 31st 2010 for U.A.E. his passport number is TF***** [omitted] and date of birth is August 1958.
On April 4th, 2010 my husband along with a few university employees was abducted from Ras Al Khaymah, UAE. Since then we have had no contact with him.I have put a formal request with the foreign office and also informed our Embassy in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E but so far there has been very little movement from the concerned authorities.
I am extremely worried for the safety of my husband who is a highly respectable individual in medical circles in Pakistan. He has a large following of students and colleagues all of who share my concern.
We are holding a Press Conference on Friday 16 Apr 2010 at 3 pm at the Press Club Lahore. You are requested to attend and help us in recovery of Dr Ayaz. I will be highly obliged. A simultaneous protest will be held in Karachi at the Karachi Press Club at 3:30pm by his well wishers in Karachi
