The main headline news in Britain in the last few days is the disappearance of little Madeleine McCann in Portugal.
Madeline who is a 3 year old British girl, went to Portugal for a holiday with her parents and 2 year old twin brother & sister, Sean and Amelie, they stayed at an apartment in a holiday village in Al Garve.
One night after the children went to sleep, the parents went out to eat at a restaurant which is few hundred yards away from the apartment where their children were sleeping and they said that they were checking on their children every half an hour.
Upon the parents return that night they found the door to the apartment open, Madeline was missing, the twins and everything else untouched, the police were informed who eventually confirmed that Madeline was abducted from her bed and that they are following a suspect. now 3 days on from this nightmare the police are not sure if even Madeline is still alive, her heart broken family have made many pleads for her safe return this is being the latest "Please do not scare her. Please let us know where to find Madeleine or put her in a place of safety".
While I do feel very sorry for her parents and I can not even claim to know what they are going true, I still cant understand why they trusted where they were staying and left their children on their own? they were in a foreign land away from their familiar environment, this is not an ideal world and it has been proven that even if you check every 30 minutes on your kids there still is a monster lurking somewhere, a monster that took beautiful little Madeline away. it is a cruel world, do not let your children out of your sight if you are away from home, not even for a minute, they are our responsibility.
I have watched the pain of the McCann family and would not wish it on anyone, I do hope InshaAllah that the little girl is found safely and that this nightmare ends on a happier note.
