BANNU: Driving an eccentric vehicle that he designed himself, Mastan Khan, a 66-year-old man who was displaced in the ongoing military operation in North Waziristan, remarked that if he stays alive, by God's will, he would have 18 more children -- to add to his collection of 22.

"I'll be done when I get a fourth wife, it is my only interest," he said.

Speaking about his wives, the father of 22 children said, "One of them had become old and aged while the other two were fine."

Khan claimed he gets his wives whatever they ask him for, adding that once he got 30 tolas of gold for each of them.

Sporting a wild moustache on his face, a peculiar cap on his head and a Kalashnikov in his hand, the 66-year-old revealed that cars and moustaches were his only hobbies.

He is currently living in Bannu, with other internally displaced persons (IDPs) from North Waziristan.

"I will give my life for Pakistan, this is a small thing," he remarked, referring to the change in location.

@Indian, @ Aakash, @ Raj : Gun is surly part of Pathan culture, which has a history. guns are common in USA too You do not criticize gun carrying Afghan's because of Indian interest in that country or Israel for their cowardly acts in Gaza that was once India's best friend. But you all have plenty of time to criticize Pakistan.

It is insane that you guys are not worried about hundreds of rapes cases in month, many are not reported, which is common in your country. You guys do not wish to debate suicide epidemic among India's marginalized farmers or Indian living in extreme poverty that has poorer record than Pakistan.

Please wake-up and do not live in fools paradise. "All that glitter is not gold".
