KABUL: Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leaders Manzoor Ahmad Pashteen and Mohsin Dawar (Dawar is also a member of Pakistan’s National Assembly) were released on Monday following their arrest by Pakistani police the day before as they traveled to attend a rally.
Media reports indicate that hundreds of demonstrators from the Jani Khel area marched toward Islamabad on Sunday to protest what they called the brutal murder of four Pashtun youth hailing from Bannu District in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. “We have been released earlier in the morning,” Dawar said in a tweet on Monday.
“We appreciate the resilience of the participants of the Pashtun long march to Islamabad who successfully stood unified against the state’s strategic depth policy.”
