KARACHI, January 9: PPP Human Rights Cell Central Coordinator Dr Nafisa Shah has expressed concern on the increasing disappearances of political activists, scholars and bloggers in the last few days in the country. In addition to Salman Haider there are reports of at least 3 other bloggers and activists who are missing besides a number of political activists in Sindh and Balochistan.
“The Minister Interior must come clean on this matter and take urgent steps towards recovery of these activists. The Minister for information technology should also give us answers as it is apparent that their blogs have been removed,” Says PPP Human Rights Coordinator Dr Nafisa Shah.
“Unfortunately PMLN government has miserably failed in implementing the National Action Plan or in punishing the terrorists and ironically social activists and intellectuals who are the main challengers of extremism in Pakistan are being kidnapped, tortured and victimised and government is either clueless or unable to protect them,” she added.
The ppp human rights cell also voiced concern on the disappearances in Sindh and Balochistan of political activists and nationalist voices. They called upon the Human Rights Committee of the National Assembly to respond to the growing rights violations in the country.
