Perwez is hale and hearty at home, says father

Alam said the whole family is pampering Perwez to “make him happy and comfortable”.

The Indian teenage boy who went missing for 14 days before he was reunited with his family is hale and hearty, and he is settling down well at home, according to his father.

Mohammed Perwez’s father, Mohammed Aftab Alam, told Khaleej Times that the boy underwent medical tests on Saturday and “he is perfectly fine”.

“There is nothing to worry about. Medical reports have come out well and he is in good health,” said Alam.

The family had spent sleepless nights worrying about the fate of their teenage son who ran away from their home in Muweilah, Sharjah, reportedly after his mother chided him for watching YouTube videos late into the night. After a massive search that stretched for 14 days, Perwez finally returned to his family at 3am on July 19, much to the relief of his parents.

Alam said the whole family is pampering Perwez to “make him happy and comfortable”.

“We are not asking him any uncomfortable questions now. We are taking him out, feeding him well, and buying him gifts. He has to be happy at home. That is our priority now.”

Alam said he wants parents of teenagers to learn a lesson from his mistake.

“I made a mistake by being too harsh on my son. It is important to listen to our children and grant some of their wishes. If we don’t listen to them, how will they listen to us?”

He promised to give Perwez some more freedom to enjoy his favourite shows and go out with friends.

“I am willing to do anything to make him happy. The pain and trauma I went through for two weeks have changed my approach to parenting. I want to be my son’s best friend, so that he will never think about leaving home again.”

After reuniting with his family, a repentant Perwez, on his part, had promised not to do it again. “I missed my family when I was gone. I won’t do it again.”
