Shahbaz Taseer, who is in his early thirties, was captured by gunmen in Lahore in 2011 and returned to his family this March, a rare happy ending that captured the public's imagination in a country that has been battling a homegrown insurgency for more than a decade.Since his release, Shahbaz and his wife Maheen have lit up Twitter with their funny and loving account of their relationship and of his return to civilization.His father Salmaan Taseer was governor of Punjab province and was shot dead by his own bodyguard for his opposition to the country's blasphemy laws, which critics say are used to target religious minorities.The exact circumstances of Shabaz's release remain unclear. Earlier this year, Argentine football star Lionel Messi sent two jerseys to a 5-year-old Afghan boy who became an Internet sensation when he was pictured wearing a plastic bag with "Messi" scrawled on it in marker pen.
