14 Jan 2019 Afghanistan Times

AT-PESHAWAR: Manzoor Pashteen Chief of Pakhtoon Tahafuz Movement (PTM) has demanded exemplary punishment to ex-Karachi police officer Mr. Rao Anwaar who was not only responsible for killing of Naqeeb Ullah Mehsud but also found guilty in killing of over 440 innocent people in fake encounters.

Manzoor made the demand while addressing a well attended

rally arranged in connection with first death anniversary of Naqeeb Ullah Mehsud

in Tank on Sunday. The rally was attended by thousands of people from all over

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and adjacent areas of Baluchistan.

Beside others a large number of mothers, fathers, brothers,

wives and sisters of those “missing persons” were present who mysteriously

disappeared after their arrests or picking up by personnel of law enforcing

agencies. Similarly a large number of those including children who have lost

limbs in land mines explosions were also turned to the rally, considered

historical in Tank.

Amidst chanting slogans against government and governments

especially security forces, the PTM activists have received their leaders on

entrance to venue of the rally., Manzoor Pashteen along with leading aides

including MNA Ali Wazir entered venue of the rally.

Manzoor said that all those who are involved in killing of

innocent Pakhtoons are involved in terror acts and aggression against Pakhtoons

are being patronized even hosted like guests by State and State organs. In this

respect he diverted attentions towards ex-police officer Rao Anwaar and

militant spokesperson Qari Ihsan Ullah Ihsan, as both of them are now a days

treated like Very Important Persons (VIP’s). He said that both of them were

involved in killing of Pakhtoons and aggression, therefore, they should be

awarded exemplary punishment. He urged the government to realize its promises

regarding recovery/release of missing persons and constitute a Truths and

Reconciliation Commission for settling the issue.

Besides Manzoor, the rally was also addressed by several

others including MNA Ali Wazir. Another PTM MNA Mohsin Dawar reached late even

during concluding speech of Manzoor Pashteen.

Earlier, the district administration denied permission to

PTM leaders for holding rally in Town Hall Ground but on Sunday morning, they

changed the decision. In this respect, Manzoor Pashteen has extended thanks to

the district and police administration.
