BAHAWALPUR: Haq Nawaz, a 17-year-old boy from Bahawalpur, may be one of the tallest persons in Pakistan but his height is proving to be a problem for him.
At about seven feet nine inches tall and still growing taller, Nawaz, an orphan from a poor family, thinks of his height as a curse.
His bones are gradually becoming deformed due to a medical condition and he also cannot afford to buy food for his growing appetite.
The boy’s family and village representatives have appealed to the government for financial help, saying his name should be registered with the Guinness Book of World Records.
If government help him, he can be another Pakistani world record holder.
